Millsaps Gets 1.5 Million Dollar 
Grant From Ford Foundation 

' Must Raise $3,750,000 
To Meet Challenge 




By Jim Lucas 



Reprinted From Major Notes 

A pat on the back, a 
"kick in the apogee"— and 
some cash in the pocket- 
book — have been handed 
to Millsaps College in the 
form of a Ford Foundation 
grant of $1,500,000. 

Announcement that Mill- 
saps had been selected for a 
grant was made in late June. 
The College was one of eight 
Southern colleges and uni- 
versities and three non-South- 
ern schools selected this year. 

The grant is conditional up- 
on the raising of $3,750,000 un- 
der a two - and - a - half-to- 
one matching clause. Millsaps 
will launch in the near future 
an effort to bring in $4,000,000 
in a three-year period. Of- 
ficials have additionally an- 
nounced a $25,000,000 goal for 
the next ten years. 

Selection of Millsaps to re- 
ceive a grant designates the 
75-year-old institution a "cen- 
ter of excellence" in higher 
education. 

President Benjamin B. 
Graves called the grant "the 
most significant national rec- 
ognition that has ever been 
given Millsaps College," add- 
ing, "From a long-range 
point of view it could turn out 
to be one of the most impor- 
tant things that has ever hap- 
pened to higher education in 
Mississippi." 

Dr. Graves said the grant 
was of major significance 
"first, because only 69 out of 
some 800 private higher edu- 
cation institutions have re- 
ceived Ford challenge grants 
prior to today. Second, the 
South, and our own state in 



To The Millsaps Student Body 

GREAT INSTITUTIONS - PRODUCTS OF 'SWEAT AND BLOOD 1 



Let me take this opportunity to welcome all of 
you and especially our new students to this, the 
seventy-fifth session of Millsaps College. You are 
coming to an institution with a proud heritage 
which I hope you will examine, and cherish. What 
you see here and the people whom you meet repre- 
sent the efforts and even the sacrifice of many 
dedicated people. Let u> never forget that great 
institutions', as well as nations, are the result of 
what Winston Churchil termed so eloquently, 
"blood, sweat, and tears*'. They are not accidents 
of nature. 

With the Ford Foundation Challenge Grant in 
the offing, this academic year could, indeed, be 
an historic one. During the course of the next three 
years, we shall be undertaking something that has 
never been done by a Mississippi Private Institu- 
tion heretofore— raise $3,750,000. If we do so, we 



shall be eligible for an additional $1,500,000 from 
Ford. Such an increase in resources will permit 
us to move to an even higher rung on the quality 
ladder of American Higher Education. As students, 
we shall need and want your interest, support and 
cooperation in this terribly crucial endeavour. 

Finally, let me express my most earnest de- 
sire that your experience at Millsaps be both pleas- 
ant and challenging. On this campus and in this 
metropolitan setting, you have an opportunity to 
obtain an education which compares favorably 
with the best in the South and among the better in 
the nation. Moreover Jackson offers you a chance 
to participate in a variety of educational, cultural 
and social experiences not available to students 
in any other area of Mississippi. 

May wisdom, justice, and honor guide all of us 
in this year. 

President Benjamin B. Graves 



particular, needs colleges and 
universities which compare in 
quality with the very best in 
the nation, and this is a ma- 
jor step in that direction." 

The grant gives national 
recognition to the quality of 
Millsaps' educational pro- 
gram. Only eight other South- 
ern institutions have received 
Ford grants prior to the latest 
announcement of recipients. 
They are Austin College in 
Texas, Berea College in Ken- 
tucky, Davidson College in 
North Carolina, Southwestern 
at Memphis, Stetson Universi- 
in Florida, Tulane Uni- 
versity in Louisiana, Vander- 
bilt University in Tennessee, 
and the University of the 
South in Tennessee. In addi- 
tion, the Foundation has 
granted a total of $19 million 
for Negro higher education — 
$6 million to the United Ne- 
gro College Fund and $13 
million to thirteen predomi- 
nantly Negro colleges in the 
South. 

'A Kick In The Apogee' 

The "kick in the apogee" 
analogy was used by Presi- 
dent Graves at a press break- 
fast announcing the $25,000,- 
000 drive. He explained it by 
saying that when a rocket 
reaches a certain point in its 
flight a booster fires to give

Occult Artist 
To Appear Here 

MARTIN ST. JAMES, a 
famed hypnotist and expert 
on ESP, will appear on cam- 
pus Sept. 23, under the spon- 
sorship of the Student Execu- 
tive Board. 

"We guarantee you'll never 
see an act of this type more 
interesting, fascinating or hi- 
larious." This is the promise 
made by the SEB officers 
who saw Mr. St. James per- 
form at SUSGA (Southern 
Universities Student Govern- 
ment Association) in Florida 
last spring. 

"We laughed until we lit- 
erally hurt," they added. 

The members of the 
Student Executive Board 
stressed that the student re- 
sponse to Martin St. James* 
performance will set the tem- 
po for the type entertainment 
Millsaps attracts in the fu- 
ture.

Sept. 10, 1966 



Emphasis: Men, Not Machines 



* 'Truth can survive competition in the 
market place of ideas." 

— Henry Steele Commager 

A malignant cancer manifested itself 
last fall on the Berkeley Campus of the 
University of California and spread to 
other campuses across the nation. 

The big question: Why? A more im- 
portant question? How has Millsaps 
managed to steer clear of such activity? 

We pose these answers to the first 
questions and observations concerning 
the second: 

L The bigness and impersonality of 
many campuses. 

Millsaps prides itself on its small size 
and the informal relationship which 
professors and students share. Each stu- 
dent is an individual, not a statistic or 
an IBM card. 

2. The excessive paternalism of some 
institutions. 

At Millsaps students are realistically 
prepared for "real life" by being urged 
to analyze and set their own values. 

3. Tremendous academic pressures. 
Even though the academic standards 

at Millsaps are very high, students have 



no trouble finding time to indulge in var- 
ious extracurricular activities or just re- 
lax occasionally. 

4. A need on the part of students to 
participate in some form of community 
action, even if the form isn't always 
neatly traditional. 

Millsaps is centered in an area rich 
with opportunity for participation in the 
arts, politics, or community improve- 
ment programs. 

5. The failure of many colleges to es- 
tablish a dialogue with their students. 

The administration at Millsaps, rather 
than treating students as adversaries, 
emphasizes a community, a sharing of 
ideas, attitudes, and opinions. 

6. A lack of directive purpose on the 
part of some colleges other than taking 
in money and conferring degrees. 

It is the goal at Millsaps to graduate 
men and women who have taken a pene- 
trating look at their culture in the light 
of the great ideas of our civilization 
and who feel committed to its improve- 
ment. 

The concern is not so much with the 
accumulation of facts as it is with the 
creation of flexible minds.— M.S. 



Bigots On The Left, Too! 



By GEARY S. ALFORD 
Assistant Editor 

For too long now it has been the prac- 
tice to associate the southern conserva- 
tive with obduracy, bigotry, and fanati- 
cism, while the "liberal" is represented 
as progressive, perspicacious, and intel- 
lectual. 

To be a conservative today is to be 
categorized into a whole class of dissimi- 
lar members who may (or may not) 
share one common quality, in that in 
some political area, on some question 
they may be in agreement. 

At Millsaps these perverted concep- 
tions are often practiced by those who 
deem themselves Millsaps' intelligentsia. 
This writer was recently accused of be- 
ing Nazi, having only advocated the use 
of whatever police power necessary to 
"crush" and prevent rioting in the 
streets. 

I wondered at my friend as he so hasti- 
ly labeled and classified me. I wondered 



how he could possibly understand me in 
that light. Indeed, I wondered if he knew 
what it meant to be "Nazi". Of him I 
expected better things. Yet this is the 
sort of thing that happens more and more 
around Millsaps. 

The "liberals'* have long attacked the 
conservative Southerner as making too 
many hasty generalizations, being too 
quick to label and categorize, having too 
many ethnological prejudices. And yet 
to most left-wingers to be conservative 
is to be backward, to be radical is to be 
Nazi, and to be white Mississippian is 
to be both backward and radical. 

We believe to be "liberal" is not nec- 
essarily to be intellectual, and to be 
strongly conservative is not necessarily 
to be unintellectual or anti-intellectual. 

We of the P&W urge a more broad- 
minded approach by both liberal and con- 
servative in attempting to understand the 
other's position, and leave the argumen- 
tum ad hominem to the Summit Sun. 



'Ya'll Goin' Someplace? 



EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an editorial 
which we wrote during the first part of 
last semester. In response to several re- 
quests, we are reprinting it here after 
adapting it somewhat for this issue. 

"Hey gang, look at the crowd!" 

"Listen to the cheers!" 

"They love us for our Victory'!" 

It's just a little ritual the Majors al- 
ways went through last year upon reach- 
ing the campus after their ball trips. The 
f-ball team invented the game, but Mon- 
ty's Majors adapted it to their own use. 
At two or three in the morning, cold, 
dead-tired after an all-night drive, it sor- 
ta helped to bolster up the oV spirits. 

But some things didn't help at all. 
Take, for example, the Sewanee game 
(basketball). The guys were pretty dis- 
gusted after spending a weekend on top 
of the mountain with about a thousand 
males, being "wiped out," driving eight 
hours. 

Clothes all wrinkled, scraggly beards, 
bags under the eyes, they came bopping 
in to breakfast upon arrival back at the 
4 Saps. 

"Hey, ya'll goin' someplace?" 
"Oh, I didn't even know ya'll had been 
gone." 

That's the greeting they got. Makes a 
guy feel real great. 

Makes him want to get out on that 
court (or field) and spare no amount of 



blood, sweat and tears in order to win 
for his school. 

The Majors did have support last year 
— at least more than in the recent past — 
but things could have been better. And 
here's hoping they will be this year. 

Comments like "You mean ya'll lost 
again?" or "Well, whaddaya know, Mill- 
saps actually won a game!" could be 
eliminated all together and not be 
missed. 

Right now the Majors are in Prichard, 
Ala., kicking off the football season 
against Livingston State. 

Let's begin right now and back them 
with all we've got. 

And here are some tips worth keeping 
in mind throughout the football season 
and for other sports this year. 

Support the Majors. 

Attend the games. 

Keep up with what's going on — the 
games are always posted on doors, bul- 
letin boards, and in other strategic 
places around campus. 

Make an effort to learn who the play- 
ers are and their names. 

Don't ask the guys all sorts of ques- 
tions right after a tough, tiring game and 
expect to be treated with sugar and 
honey. 

Most important of all, BE POSITIVE 
and CARE. 
We can go places! — M.S.

The Ford Foundation has thrown down the gauntlet. 

It has challenged us to flex our muscles and "prove 
our stuff" as never before. 

And the challenge is not to President Graves, to 
the alumni, or to the adminis- 



tration. It is to Millsaps Col- 
lege — this includes US the 
student body. 

At this crucial time, we 
students cannot afford to fade 
into the woodwork while 
someone else hauls the 
bricks. 

Need Positive Outlook 

With a progressive, positive 
outlook to match that of the 
president's, our impact on 
the college's future at this 
stage could be overwhelming. 

We need concrete projects. 

The Student Senate will 
probably be proposing some 
in the near future and we 
urge you to be on the look- 
out and not to be bashful 
about offering your services. 

We also might bear in mind 
the fact that Hebrew Univer- 
sity in Israel was built large- 
ly from small donations from 
people in this country. The 
money was collected 
in pushkas, or small cans. 

Welcome To Newcomers 

The Purple & White, on the 
part of the student body, ad- 
ministration, and faculty, ex- 
tends a warm welcome to in- 
coming freshmen and transfer 
students. 

It is our hope that you will 
join the "Millsaps Revolu- 
tion*' to real greatness; there 
are no sidelines anymore. 

It's been proven — the fast- 



est way to get rid of any 
initial "out of place" or 
"walking on spongy ground" 
feelings is to plough right in. 
Get involved. 

Organizations Galore 
Scores of organizations and 
programs provide opportuni- 
ties for student participation, 
regardless of interests. 
Some of these are: 
Forensics: the debate team 
travels to tournaments 
throughout the country. 

Millsaps Players: four pro- 
ductions are staged annually, 
ranging from Greek tragedy 
to Shakespeare to Tennessee 
Williams to Lerner and Lowe. 

Musical organizations: The 
three choral groups are the 
Concert Choir, Troubadours, 
and the Chapel Choir. 

Publications: These are the 
Purple & White, weekly stu- 
dent newspapers; Stylus, lit- 
erary magazine published 
twice annually; and the 
Bobashela, the yearbook. 

Athletics: Millsaps com- 
petes intercollegiately in 
football, basketball, baseball, 
tennis, track, golf, and arch- 
ery. (Note: Dedicated fans 
are needed as well as actual 
players.) 

Religious Program: There 
are six organized denomina- 
tional groups (Methodist,

Chicago Institute Seminars Set 



Who am I in this be- 
wildered world? 

Where should I commit 
my life? 

What is the calling of 
the Christian today? 

Answers to these and 
other questions will be 
probed in depth at the 
Ecumenical Institute of 
Chicago - sponsored lay 
seminars Sept. 30-Oct. 2. 

The weekend seminars, 
to be held at Camp Brat- 
ton Green in Rose Hill, will 
begin at 6 p.m. Friday. 

The first lay seminar is 
basic and a prerequisite to 
the second— a more ad- 
vanced course in the study 
of urban and secular revo- 
lutions. 



Tuition for the lay semi- 
nars is $22. A number of 
partial scholarships are 
available. 

The Institute is also con- 
ducting a minister's semi- 
nar Oct. 3-6, which will 
deal with the theological 
revolutions and cultural 
changes of the 20th cen- 
tury. 

The Ecumenical Institute 
of Chicago is a group deep- 
ly involved in theological 
dialogue on a local, nation- 
al, and international scale 
spanning all denomina- 
tions. 

Further information on 
the seminars can be ob- 
tained from Dr. Lee H. 
Reiff, chairman of Millsaps 
religion department. 



Ford Foundation Grant 



Behavioral Sciences, Fine Arts 

Courses Added To 
Core Curriculum 



Freshmen entering Millsaps 
this fall must, sometime dur- 
ing their four years of study, 
take a few courses not pre- 
viously included in the re- 
quired core curriculum. 

The new requirement pro- 
vides that students take 
courses in the behavioral sci- 
ences and the fine arts. This 
inovation will pave the way 
for a proposed interdiscipli- 
nary curriculum which offi- 
cials hope to put into effect 
by the fall of 1967 and which 
will be unique to Mississippi. 

The behavioral sciences and 
fine arts course requirements 
are designed to correct what 
official call an imbalance in 
the core curriculum. A recent 
study showed that students 
tend to take the greatest part 
of their work in their fields 
of interest rather than to seek 
a well-rounded education. 

BM Degree New 

Also new for the 1966-67 ses- 
sion will be a Bachelor of 
music degree. Students have 
previously received a Bache- 
lor of Arts or Bachelor of 
Science degree with a major 
in music. 

Bachelor of Arts candidates 
enrolling this fall will be re- 
quired to take, in addition to 
the standard core curriculum, 
six hours of economics, polit- 
ical science, psychology, or 
sociology; and three hours in 
the fine arts. 

Bachelor of Science candi- 
dates must take three hours 
in a behavioral science, the 
fine arts, or philosophy. 
Bachelor of Music candidates 
will take six hours in a be- 
havioral 



dent, a writing laboratory, for- 
eign language, a science sur- 
vey course, religion, philoso- 
phy, behavioral science, Non- 
Western studies, and 20th 
Century issues and values. 

The cores for the other two 
degrees would be similar, the 
differences requiring the stu- 
dent to take courses in the di- 
visions other than his major 
concentration. 



Interdisciplinary Curriculum 

The proposed interdiscipli- 
nary core curriculum will be 
centered around a 14-hour 
course called "Man in West- 
ern Civilization." Officials say 
the course would deal with 
the ideas, events, discoveries, 
and movements which form 
the basis of Western culture. 

The proposed core would 
also include, for the BA stu- 



Economics 
Curriculum 
Is Upgraded 

Millsaps economics and 
business administration cur- 
riculum will undergo consid- 
erable revamping this fall. 

The changes are designed 
to strengthen the department 
and better the preparation of 
majors for future careers. 

The biggest inovation is an 
internship program in ac- 
counting. Four areas of con- 
centration, including for the 
first time business-secretarial 
training, have also been made 
available. 

Choice of Concentration 

Dr. Richard B. Baltz, de- 
partment chairman, said that 
the changes include the re- 
quirement that all majors in 
the department take certain 
core courses, regardless of 
concentration, and choice of 
concentration in economics, 
business administration, ac- 
counting, or business-secre- 
tarial training. 

Opportunities will be pro- 
vided for independent study 
and research and for partici- 
pation in an internship pro- 
gram. 

The internship program will 
permit accounting students to 
receive training from repre- 
sentatives of a nationally 
known accounting firm or 
with the Internal Revenue 
Service.

it needed impetus and thrust 
to continue. "We at Millsaps 
have reached a level of ex- 
cellence, but the Ford grant 
will give us incentive to move 
farther and faster," he said. 

Dr. Graves said the heavi- 
est emphasis on use of the 
funds at Millsaps will be in 
upgrading the academic pro- 
gram by raising faculty sala- 
ries and making limited ad- 
ditions to the faculty, increas- 
ing book holdings to a mini- 
mum of 100,000 volumes, in- 
troducing changes in the cur- 
riculum, implementing the 
scholarship program, and 
adding a fine arts program. 

The $25,000,000 is planned 
for new facilities, including a 
modern lecture center; com- 
pletion of a fine arts build- 
ing; additions and renovations 
to the administration build- 
ing, the Christian Center, and 
physical education facilities; 
additions to the science lab- 
oratories; and general im- 
provements to the campus. 

President Graves said the 
money would also be used to 
implement long-range plan- 
ning efforts, including an en- 
rollment increase to 1,500 by 
1975 and possible elevation to 
university status within the 
next ten to fifteen years. 
No Graduate Facilities 

At the present time Jack- 
son, the state's largest metro- 
politan area, has no facilities 
for graduate education other 
than professional schools. 
Nearby Mississippi College 
offers some graduate courses. 

Grants totaling $33.5 million 
were awarded by the Foun- 
dation to eight privately sup- 
ported Southern higher educa- 
tion institutions this year. 

The amounts and conditions 
of the grants are based on a 
detailed study of each insti- 
tution's needs, accomplish- 
ments, potential and state of 
readiness for advancement, 
and fund matching ability. 
The universities and colleges 
are selected on the basis of 
their tradition of scholarship 
and plans and ability to 
make pace - setting improve- 
ments, quality of their lead- 
ership, and the strength of 



support from alumni and oth- 
er sources. 

Officials say they feel that 
the achievements of the 
school's graduating classes 
were a major factor in the 
Foundation's decision to 
award a grant to Millsaps. 
This year, for example, sen- 
iors received two Fulbright 
Scholarships, four Woodrow 
Wilson National Fellowships, 
a National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration Fellow- 
ship, a National Institute of 
Health Scholarship, several 
special grants, and numerous 
institutional scholarships, fel- 
lowships, and assistantships. 

The average percentile 
ranking of the scores of the 
1966 seniors on the Graduate 
Record Examinations was 
63.3. 

Millsaps students have won 
a third of the Woodrow Wil- 
son Fellowships awarded to 
graduates of Mississippi insti- 
tutions while accounting for 
ten per cent of the liberal 
arts degrees awarded in the 
state. 

A study by Allen M. Carter 
of the American Council on 
Education last fall showed 
that Millsaps was 35th in the 
nation in the percentage of 
graduates who receive nation- 
al fellowships. There are 
more than 1,200 accredited 
senior colleges and universi- 
ties. 

Like Sorority Rush 

Millsaps has been under 
consideration for a grant by 
the Ford Foundation since 
last summer. President 
Graves describes the whole 
thing as "like sorority rush 
with a limited quota." 

The past year for Millsaps 
has been one of hard work, 
introspection, analysis, and 
"bed of coals uncertainty," 
Dr. Graves says. 

Last summer Ford Founda- 
ttion officials asked Dr. 
Graves if Millsaps would like 
to be considered for a grant. 
Explanations were made as to 
what would be involved. 

"We felt that, even if we 
didn't get the money, it would 
be good for us to make the 
studies Ford required," Dr. 
Graves said. "So we said yes 
and prepared for a year of 



hard work." 

There were visits to the 
Foundation by Millsaps offi- 
cials and, last October, a visit 
to the Millsaps campus by a 
Ford educational consultant. 
"This was the first crucial 
point," Dr. Graves ex- 
plains. "It could have all end- 
ed right there." 

But it didn't. The Ford 
emissary talked with officials, 
students, teachers, Trustees, 
looked things over generally, 
and gave a favorable report 
to the Foundation. 

Then the work intensified. 
Ford asked for a profile of 
the College which outlined dis- 
tinctive aspects of the Mill- 
saps program, accomplish- 
ments which qualified Mill- 
saps for a grant, educational 
facilities plans for the next 
decade, specific goals, fund 
raising achievements and pro- 
posals, a history of the school, 
and voluminous amounts of 
supporting material. 

93-Page Report 

Millsaps' 93 - page report 
went off in March. Then there 
was an anxious period while 
Millsaps waited to hear some 
word. Finally a group was 
asked to come to New York 
to talk with the Foundation 
officials. 

Discussion in New York 
centered in large measure 
around terms of the proposed 
grant. Ford officials want to 
provide incentive for fund- 
raising, to help colleges to 
identify sources of funds 
which may become perma- 
nent. 

"The challenge feature per- 
mits a school to tell prospec- 
tive donors that their contri- 
butions will yield an addition- 
al amount in Ford Founda- 
tion funds, depending on the 
matching ratio," Dr. Graves 
explained. 

Then there were months of 
waiting until the Board of 
Trustees of the Ford Founda- 
tion met to make final ap- 
proval, which it did on June 
23 and 24. 

Millsaps does not expect the 
grant to solve all of its prob- 
lems, but, says Dr. Graves, 
"You'd be surprised at how 
much money can help." 




DISCUSS FORD GRANT — President Benjamin B. Graves, second from left, discusses with 
several other officials the far-reaching effects which the coveted $1.5 million Ford Foundation 
challenge grant can have on Millsaps College and the state of Mississippi. A $4,000,000 fund- 
raising drive for the next three years has been launched and a $25,000,000 one for the next 
ten years is in the planning. Announcement that the college would receive the grant came 
in June.

Gifts and grants galore are 
helping to insure the continual 
upgrading of Millsaps educa- 
tional facilities. 

In addition to a $1.5 million 
challenge grant by the Ford 
Foundation, Millsaps received 
several thousand dollars this 
summer from various 
sources. 

One grant, a virtual dream 
come true managed to take 
on nightmarish proportions 
for Miss Mary O'Bryant, Mill- 
saps librarian. 

The windfall came in the 
form of a $5,000 matching 
grant, provided by the High- 
er Education Act of 1905. 

On May 28 Miss O'Bryant 
just happened to run across a 
notice in the newspaper that 
application had been sent to 
the various institutions. 

Hurried phone calls 
procured the Millsaps forms, 
which had not arrived, but 
necessary red tape resulted 
in Miss O'Bryant's having 
three days to place the order 
for books — June 27-30. 

"I spent three days in front 
of the typewriter but we made 
it," she said. 

The order included mainly 
publications that would fill in 
gaps in library holdings. The 
New York Times for the year 
was ordered on microfilm, 
completing a file of 1965-66 
papers. Some 125 back vol- 
umes of periodicals and ap- 
proximately 175 books were 
ordered. The largest single 
expense was for three years 
of the National Union Catalog, 
which cost $1,100. 

President Graves has indi- 
cated that large sums of the 
money from the Ford Foun- 
dation Grant will be ear- 
marked for the library, which 
has been a main area of con-

man in football and baseball 
and a two-year letterman in 
basketball. 

Robert Bruce, the Missis- 
sippi Economic Council's 
STAR student at Pass Chris- 
tian High School, was a two- 
year letterman as basketball 
manager and was a member 
of the Beta Club. 

Karen, a member of the 
band and pianist for Philadel- 
phia High School chorus, was 
vice-president of FTA Club. 



cern in recent years. 

The library currently has 
60,000 volumes. 

General Science Institute 

Another grant has made it 
possible for Millsaps to offer 
an in-service institute in gen- 
eral science for elementary 
school teachers during the 
1966-67 session. 

The Millsaps Science Divi- 
sion was awarded this sum- 
mer a $5,000 grant by the Na- 
tional Science Foundation to 
support the institute. 

It is under the direction of 
Dr. C. T. Mansfield, assistant 
professor of chemistry. 

Participation is limited to 
50 elementary school person- 
nel presently teaching in Mis- 
sissippi. 

Teachers selected to attend 
the institute receive partial 
travel expenses, textbooks, 
and educational materials. 
The college is charging no 
fees for participation. 

The institute is designed to 
improve the teaching of sci- 
ence in the elementary 
schools. 

Computation Equipment 

Another grant, a $7,900 one 
to the mathematics depart- 
ment from the National Sci- 
ence Foundation, will help 
provide for the purchase of 
computation equipment. 

The new equipment in- 
cludes an analog computer 
and accessory equipment and 
three desk calculators, one of 
which is an electronic model 
which can be programmed. 

Dr. Samuel R. Knox, chair- 
man of the mathematics de- 
partment and the project di- 
rector, said the new equip- 
ment would improve the pro- 
grams of the department of 
physics and chemistry as well 
as all areas of mathematics. 



Straight-A 

Joe was a straight-A stu- 
dent at Newton High School. 

David received a medal of 
excellence in science, plus 
several other science and 
leadership awards.

ton High Beta Club, was also 
a three - year letterman in 
baseball and an All Confer- 
ence selection.

from Meridian High School in 
the top three per cent of his 
class. 

Linda Gail, was an Honor 
Senior at Eupora High School. 

Ralph ranked third in his 
class of 369 at Gulfport High 



The National Science Foun- 
dation has also helped to- 
wards the purchase of equip- 
ment for the biology and 
geology departments this past 
year. This summer NSF 
helped support a summer in- 
stitute in geology. 

Geology Institute 

With a $23,000 grant from 
the Foundation, a team of 
geology teachers from 17 
states and two Canadian 
provinces spent the summer 
studying the forces of nature 
on the Mississippi Sound. The 
conference, under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Richard Priddy, 
chairman of Millsaps geology 
department, was conducted at 
the Gulf Coast Research Lab- 
oratory at Ocean Springs. 
Memorial Gift 

In addition to the grants, 
the college was presented a 
$25,000 memorial gift several 
months ago. The gift, ear- 
marked for the Fine Arts 
Building Fund, was made by 
Mrs. C. R. Ridgway Sr. and 
her son, C. R. Ridgway, both 
of Jackson. 

Officials hope to begin con- 
struction on the new $1,000,- 
000 fine arts center this year. 
Approximately $200,000 is 
needed before construction 
can begin. 

The building will house the 
departments of speech- 
drama, music, and the visual 
arts. It will be located on the 
east side of the campus be- 
tween the sorority lodges and 
Whitworth-Sanders dorms.

DUTY 

Duty is a power which rises 
us in the morning and goes 
to rest with us at night. It is 
co-extensive with the action of 
our intelligence. It is the shad- 
ow which cleaves to us, go 
where we will, and which only 
leaves us when we leave the 
light— Gladstone 

your own perspective. 

One last hint: If you should 
happen to start feetling some- 
what lost or confused, just 
look up Coach Monty. You'll 
still feel the same way when 
you leave him, but there's a 
certain amount of consolation 
in knowing you're not the on- 
ly one in that condition.

Laurie LeFleur, 
Lucy Cavett Now 
Studying Abroad 

By Helen Perry 

Although studying in Eu- 
rope is only a dream to most 
Millsaps students, this month 
the dream of foreign study 
has come true for Millsaps 
coeds Laurie LeFleur and 
Lucy Cavett. These girls are 
spending their junior year 
abroad at the University of 
Aix-en-Provence, France. 

Laurie and Lucy sailed for 
France, Sept. 2. They spent 
three days in Paris before go- 
ing to Aix for school which 
starts the 14th. 

Courses In English 

In addition to taking 
courses at the University, the 
girls also will attend the In- 
stitute for American Univer- 
sities, which is chartered by 
the 44 Board of Regents of the 
State of New York" and is 
under the auspices of the Uni- 
versity of Aix. Courses at the 
Institute are taught in Eng- 
lish. Courses at the Univer- 
sity, which was founded in 
1409, are in French. Accord- 
ing to Lucy, both the Insti- 
tute and the University are lo- 
cated 30 miles north of Mar- 
seilles, which is on the 
Riviera. 

200 Institutions 

More than 200 American 
colleges and universities are 
cooperating in the program. 
Colleges sending students to 
the Institute the Millsaps 
juniors are attending include 
Sewanee, Southwestern, Uni- 
versity of Alabama, Southern 
Methodist University, Con- 
verse, Rutgers, Michigan 
State University, and 
Marquette University. 

Also, Vanderbilt has its own 
school in Aix, separate from 
the Institute and the Uni- 
versity.

Mrs. Paul Blackledge, 1043 
12th Ave., were recently no- 
tified by J. W. Wood, busi- 
ness manager, that the col- 
lege had received a generous 
gift from the Hunter Webb 
Jr. family of Meridian as a 
memorial to John Paul. 

Wood said the funds would 
be used "to help further the 
educational program that was 
so much a part of John Paul 
these past few years."

of Defense said that the Mill- 
saps group was one of only 
14 selected this year for the 
overseas tours. 

Europe in '64 

In 1964 the Troubadours vis- 
ited military installations in 
Germany, France, and north- 
ern Italy for the USO Depart- 
ment of Defense. The then 
newly formed ensemble 
was one of 17 university and 
college groups in the na- 
tion selected for overseas 
tours. 

Directed by Leland Byler, 
chairman of the music de- 
partment, the Troubadours 
perform folk music and 
Broadway show tunes. Sever- 
al of the members double as 
instrumentalists, and most of 



their routines include chore- 
ography. 

Archie N. Jones, of the Uni- 
versity of Missouri, who is 
chairman of the USO-Na- 
tional Music Council Overseas 
Touring Committee, said, 
4 'Selection for such a tour re- 
flects credit on the work of 
your institution." 

Educational Opportunity 
He also pointed out that the 
tours offer an educational op- 
portunity for the partici- 
pants. "A number of col- 
leges and universities have 
successfully integrated the 
tour with the academic stud- 
ies and thus provided the 
students with background on 
the life and culture of the 
countries visited to enrich 
their foreign travel exper- 
ence," he stated.

Mary's Church, Oatlands, 
Weybridge, Surrey, England. 

The bride, sister-in-law of 
actress Julie Andrews, is 
from Walton-on-Thames, Sur- 
rey, England. 

The bridegroom, a protege 
of Lance Goss, graduated 
from Millsaps in 1964. Rex is 
the first Mississippian ever to 
be admitted to the Royal 
Academy of Dramatic Arts, 
the world's foremost acting 
school. 

Another Millsaps alumnus, 
Bonnie Coleman, sang at the 
wedding. 

Dean Hardin, who was 
spending his sixth summer in 
Europe (England, Scotland, 
Austria, and Germany) de- 
scribed the London wedding 
as "beautiful and impres- 
sive." 

He added, "Now they (the 
people of Walton-on-Thames) 
know a great deal more about 
Millsaps College than before 
the wedding." 

Incidentally, Hardin also 
visited in the home of a fam- 
ily near Vienna, Austria who 
expressed interest in the

By IRENE SMITH 

New Stage, Jackson's new 
resident theatre, is giving 
Millsaps students — and col- 
lege students from anywhere, 
for that matter — a special 
break on season ticket prices. 

Jane Petty, managing di- 
rector of the new theatre, has 
announced that season tick- 
ets — which are on sale to the 
general public at $12.50 and 
which go up to $15 on Sep- 
tember 20— can be purchased 
by college students for only 
$9. 

That $9 price is for a sea- 
son ticket, good for all six 
plays which New Stage will 
present this season. 

Stimulating Plays 

And it's a noteworthy list 
of plays — by far the most 
adult and stimulating theatre 
program being presented in 
Mississippi. 

The season opens on Sep- 
tember 29 with "The Subject 
Was Rose s," the Pulitzer 
Prize and Critics Circle 
Award winning comedy- 



Pikes 

Pi Kappa Alpha sent two 
representatives to the fra- 
ternity's 98th anniversary con- 
vention August 28-31, in St. 
Louis, Mo. 

The official delegates were 
Sandy Sandusky of Meridian 
and Eason Leake of Tupelo. 
Other chapter members who 
attended were Danny Ladner 
of Memphis, Tenn., Bill Fields 
of Tupelo, Sid Graves of 
Tunica, Bill Trent of Chatta- 
nooga, Tenn., and Henry 
Wooldridge of Jackson. 



drama which just closed a 
long and successful run on 
Broadway this spring. 

It will be directed, like all 
plays this season, by Ivan Ri- 
der, formerly of the Dallas 
Theatre Center and Mississip- 
pi's only full-time profession- 
al director. 

Rider came to Jackson to 
become resident director of 
New Stage when it opened 
last January to a completely 
sold-out season. The schedule 
is b e i n g expanded this year 
to accomodate a larger audi- 
ence. 

15 Performances Each 
Each play will open on a 
Thursday and run for 15 per- 
formances — skipping Sun- 
day and Monday nights and 
including two Sunday mati- 
nees are at 2:30. The mati- 
nees are proving popular with 
college students, since the 
girls don't need to worry 
about curfews. 

The season tickets may be 
ordered from Box 4792, Jack-

Several Millsaps students 
worked with New Stage last 
season and appear enthusias- 
tic about the theatre and its 
prospects as a resident, pro- 
fessional theatre. 

Many more students attend- 
ed the plays — "Who's Afraid 
of Virginia Woolf?," "The 
Glass Menagerie," "Trojan 
Women," "Charley's Aunt" 
and "The Fantasticks"— pre- 
sented in Season One. 

Season Two is offering an 
even more varied line-up. 

After "The Subject Was 
Roses," which opens on Sep- 
tember 29 and runs through 
October 15, the schedule is as 
follows: 

"The Physicists" (Novem- 
ber 17 - December 3), Fried- 
erich Duerrenmatt's wild and 
controversial corned y-sus- 
pense-thriller set in an insane 
asylum. 

"The Owl and the Pussy- 
cat" (January 12-28), daring 
and different Broadway com- 
edy success about a lady of 
loose morals and a man of 
tight principles who reform 
each other. 

"Tiny Alice" (March 2-18), 
Edward Albee's chilling and 
sensual successor to "Who's 
Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" 

One play yei to be an- 
nounced, to run April 20- 
May 6. 

"A Streetcar Named De- 
sire" (June 8-24), Tennessee 
Williams' greatest drama, an- 
other Pulitzer Prize - Critics 
Circle award winner. All 
plays are presented at New 
Stage, corner South Gallatin 
and Hooker, in the intimate 
semi-arena converted from an 
abandoned church. 

All productions will be de- 
signed by Frank Hains, Daily 
News columnist and a long- 
time booster of the Millsaps 
Players. He's much interested 
in hearing from any students 
who would care to work on 
sets. 

Auditions, of course, are al- 
ways open to Millsaps stu- 
dents — the next ones, for 
"The Physicists," will be an- 
nounced after the opening of 
"The Subject Was Roses." 




MILLS API ANS AT WORK AT NEW STAGE — Two of the 
Millsaps students who worked on New Stage productions last 
season were James McGahey and Lester Furr, both stalwarts 
of the Players, seen here wiring the door chimes for "Who's 
Afraid of Virginia Woolf?".

Greeks Add T o College Campus Life 



Four Chapters Boost Social 
Life Of Millsaps Men 



Four fraternities have local 
chapters on the Millsaps cam- 
pus. The fraternity system is 
one of the college's most pro- 
ductive units, all being out- 
standing nationally. 

They make valuable contri- 
butions to the college in striv- 
ing for high ideals by work- 
ing and living together. Affili- 
ation with anyone of the fra- 
ternities is to be considered 
an honor. 



on North State Street across 
from the entrance to the col- 
lege. 

Kappa Sigma's Barn Dance, 
given at the close of school 
each year, is one of the big 
fraternity events of the year. 



Lambda 
Chi Alpha 




Kappa 
Alpha 



Kappa Alpha Order was 
founded nationally at Wash- 
ington and Lee University in 
1865. Alpha Mu chapter is the 
oldest fraternity on the Mill- 
saps campus, being founded 
in 1892. The KA house is lo- 
cated on Park Ave. west of 
the campus. 

Their Black and White Ball 
is held before Christmas Holi- 
days each year. Every two 
years the KA's have an Old 
South Ball which lasts an en- 
tire week-end. The Ball takes 
place in the s p r i n g of the 
year. 



Established at Millsaps in 
1924, Lambda Chi Alpha origi- 
nated at Boston College in 
1909. Its members are most 
often referred to as the Lamb- 
da Chi's. The house is located 
at 434 Marshall Street on Fra- 
ternity Row, south of the cam- 
pus. 

Their main social event is 
the C r e s c e n t Ball. At this 
time they announce the 
Lambda Chi Crescent Girl. 
They sponsor an annual or- 
phan party, held each Christ- 
mas for the youngsters at The 
Methodist Home.

Pi Kappa Alpha was found- 
ed nationally at the Uni- 
versity of Virginia in 1868. 
The Pikes, as they are most 
commonly called, came to 
Millsaps in 1903. The Pike 
house is also located on Mar- 
shall Street. 

Highlight of the Pike social 
season is the Cotton Ball, 
when Dream Girl of Pi Kappa 
Alpha is chosen. 



Social Activities 
Play Needed Role 

Social events play an im- 
portant part in student life 
at Millsaps. The social or- 
ganizations are founded on 
the belief that man is a so- 
cial being and enjoys fel- 
lowship. 

They strive for high 
ideals and make valuable 
contributions both to the 
college and to the individ- 
ual in teaching students to 
work, play, and live togeth- 
er. 

There are four fraterni- 
ties and four sororities at 
Millsaps. The fraternities 
and sororities are all mem- 
bers of well-established na- 
tional Greek-letter organi- 
zations which maintain 
chapters at Millsaps. 

The sororities are Zeta 
Tau Alpha, Chi Omega, 
Kappa Delta, and Phi Mu. 
The fraternities are Kappa 
Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha, and Pi Kap- 
pa Alpha. 

Policies governing sorori- 
ty and fraternity life are 
formulated through the 
Panhellenic Council and 
the Interfraternity Council 
in cooperation with the 
Committee on Social Or- 
ganizations. 

Fraternities and Sorori- 
ties select students for 
membership during a week 
of school known as Rush 
Week. At the end of Rush 
Week these organizations 
offer "bids'* to the students 
whom they have selected.

FOUR ORGANIZATIONS OFFER 
CHOICE TO MILLSAPS WOMEN 



Girls interested in social 
groups on the Millsaps cam- 
pus have four nationally 
known sororities from which 
they can make a choice. 

Sorority life offers a girl an 
opportunity for learning to get 
along with different types of 
people, for sharing work, and 
giving cooperation to an or- 
ganization. The intimacies of 
sorority life give assurance of 
deep and lasting friendships 
based on mutual understand- 
ing. 

Zeta Tau 
Alpha 

Zeta Tau Alpha is the 
youngest sorority on the Mill- 
saps campus, making its ap- 
pearance in 1964. Zeta was 
founded at Longwood College, 
Farmville Virginia on Octo- 
ber 15, 1898. Their house is 
located just east of the Mill- 
saps-Wilson Library. 

The colors of ZTA are tur- 
quoise blue and steel gray 
and their flower is the white 
violet. The formal event of 
the year is the White Violet 
Ball at which time the Silver 
Lady, an outstanding senior, 
is selected. 



the Millsaps-Wilson Library. 

Chi Omega colors are cardi- 
nal and straw, and their flow- 
er is the white carnation.

sponsored by the sorority. 
Each year the Chi O's select 
an Owl Man at their first big 
party of the year.

Here At Millsaps 



Campus Undergoing Transformation 



By CINDY LEE 
Alakazoom, 
Swish, flam, baioom 
A transformed campus! 

Ah-h-h-h, but wouldn't it be 
nice if Millsaps did have some 
elf-type benefactors, who with 
a swish of their magic wands, 
could set big yellow machines, 
ringing hammers, and muscu- 
lar workmen in motion? 

Or maybe it wouldn't be so 
nice. 

Nevertheless, it isn't hap- 
pening that way. But the re- 
sults are the same. 

Millsaps campus is being 
transformed. 

And the changes represent 
no small amount of hard work 
and fortitude on the part of 
many people— the administra- 
tion, faculty, students, alum- 
ni, parents, religious leaders, 
and scores of others. 

AU sorts of plans are in the 
making. Some are now being 
instituted and others nearing 
completion — plans for new 
buildings and the renovation 
of old ones, money-raising 
plans, plans to upgrade the 
curriculum, and plans for 
plans and plans to make plans 
for plans— and on we go. 



What this all adds up to is 
Progress, with a capital "P". 
Founders Hall 

Now for specific changes, 
campus-wise: Founders Hall 
is undergoing * 4 rehabilita- 
tion" inside. The old historic 
landmark, dating back to ante 
bellum days, will begin a new 
career this fall. For the first 
time in recent history Foun- 
ders will not be used as a dor- 
mitory. 

The basement will house the 
sociology department — 
classes, offices, laboratories, 
and exhibits. 

On the first floor will be 
the development offices, 
classes, and rooms for music 
studies. 

The remaining two floors 
have been converted into 
classrooms and seminar 
rooms. 

A number of devotees can 
breathe a little easier now with 
the assurance that the be- 
loved old building will not be 
razed any time soon. 

Student Union 

Then there is the Boyd- 
Campbell Student Union, the 
most modern structure on 
campus other than the two 



new dorms built this sum- 
mer. 

The Union will never be the 
same again — at least that's 
the aim. Instead of simply be- 
ing a place to go check mail, 
grab a major burger, or per- 
form in the p. pit, plans are 
to make it a place for stu- 
dents to gather for relaxation 
and recreation. 

As for the basement, it is 
now minus a north wall. Dean 
Christmas had it knocked out 
in order to make one large 
recreation area out of the cen- 
tral meeting room and the 
side room. 

It is to be furnished with 
two pool tables, two ping-pong 
tables, and several bridge ta- 
bles for card fans. A Student 
Senate committee headed by 
Paul Newsom is in the proc- 
ess of organizing activities — 
tournaments and such — for 
this area. 

For special occasions the ta- 
bles can be removed, provid- 
ing plenty of room for danc- 
ing. The high ceiling of the 
side room, where the band 
will probably be placed, will 
insure good acoustics. 

A color television set has 




also been ordered to place- 
ment in the side room. 
Formal Dining Room 
The TV lounge on the main 
floor of the Student Union is 
being taken in to make a lar- 
ger formal dining area. 

This summer a data proces- 
sing office was installed in 
the basement of Murrah. 
Bright fresh coats of paint 
were applied to most of the 
walls in Murrah and the CC. 

All the furniture in the Stu- 
dent Union has been reup- 
holstered, including the "lewd 



booths" in the grill. 

While these changes may be 
small compared to some oth- 
ers, without the little things 
the big would be useless (or 
something like that), the phil- 
osopher said. . .or maybe it 
was the postman. 

Anyway, it would be worth 
one's time to try counting the 
improvements. And the next 
time somebody says nothing 
ever happens at Millsaps tell 
him how many things 
changed this summer. 

So long for now. 

Fo-o-o-o-osh ! 




HMMHHHBHHHHBI 
EXPANSION UNDERWAY 
•Bulging: at the seams" is an appropriate description for the 
formal dining room in the Student Union, prior to an enlarge 
ment project which is still underway. A workman here is laying: 
the brick for the new wall, now almost complete. 



This modern structure 
for 



NEW MEN S DORM 
the southwest side of the campus 



will provide up-to-date facilities 



At this crossroad, Millsaps 
could go in one of four direc- 
tions within the next ten to 
twenty years. Its path could 
follow that of Whitworth or 
Grenada or another of the ten 
institutions of higher educa- 
tion which Methodists have 
founded and closed during 
their memorable 150-year his- 
tory in Mississippi. Each has 
died from a lack of resources. 
A second direction could be 
one of the College's clinging 
to life but content to accept a 
status of mediocrity. A third 
direction could be toward a 
superlative Christian liberal 
arts college equal to the na- 
tion's best. Still a fourth di- 
rection could be that of a rel- 
atively small but high quality 
university, along the lines of 
perhaps Vanderbilt, Emory, 
Rice, or Tulane.

FROM CENTER TO FULL- 
BACK — Timmie Millis, a 
center when fall football 
practice began in late August, 
was soon moved to the start- 
ing fullback post. This 5-10, 
208-pounder was a four year 
letterman at Mendenhall and 
was an all-state junior college 
pick at Copiah-Lincoln. 




STARTING TACKLE — John 
Hart, a 6-0, 210-pound senior 
from Biloxi Notre Dame 
High School, will be a start, 
ing tackle on the MiUsaps 
•Purple Raider' or No. 1 of- 
fensive unit. John was a 4- 
year football letterman at 
Notre Dame and won two 
stripes at Perkinston Junior 
College. Last season at Mill- 
saps he was awarded the 
James Hood Award for su- 
perior line play. 



National Trend 
Causes Price 
Hike 

Food prices in the MiU- 
saps cafeteria and grill 
were hiked slightly this 
year to keep pace with the 
nationwide trend. 

J. W. Wood, Millsaps 
business manager, said the 
price increase was neces- 
sary in light of the fact 
that food prices nationwide 
have taken a 20% upward 
surge in the last six 
months. 

He predicted that most 
students will sign up for 
the boarding plan this ses- 
sion since the price of food 
on the boarding plan will 
be the same as before— 
$50 a month. 

On this plan students are 
allowed one meat, two veg- 
etables, one desert or sal- 
ad, one drink, and bread 
and butter. This previous- 
ly amounted to about 90c, 
but is now worth about $1. 

Alternatives to the board- 
ing plan are the use of 
meal books, (at $15 each), 
cash, or eating meals off 
campus. 

The cafeteria price 
changes, which went into 
effect this summer, include 
the following: meat— from 
40c to 45c; vegetables — 
from 10c to 12c; salads— 
from 15c to 15c and 20c; 
milk— from 10c to 12c; de- 
serts—from 15c and 20c to 
20c and 25c. 

Food prices in the grill 
were also raised. 

Consolation: The jukebox 
still eats nickels. 



Millsaps won its first Dixie 
Conference championship in 
1952, defeating Mississippi 
College 12-7.

Millsaps College's Majors 
enter their last week's work- 
out today before Saturday 
night's venture to Prichard, 
Ala. where they will play Liv- 
ingston State in the 1966 grid 
opener. 

Coach Harper Davis gave 
his team the day off Sunday 
while he and assistant Tom- 
my Ranager spent the day re- 
viewing films of Livingston 
State. 

Davis recently elevated four 
freshmen to starting positions. 
He had earlier stated that 
several members of this 
year's fine frosh crop may 
make the big jump to a start- 
ing role. 

Local Talent 

Ben Graves, a 200-pound 
freshman center, will man the 
starting ball snapping posi- 
tion. Graves graduated from 
Jackson Murrah where he 
earned three football letters, 
and played on last season's 
overall Big Eight Conference 
championship team. 

Robert Evans, a 195- 
pounder from Grenada, was 
listed to a starting offensive 
guard slot. Evans was a two 
year letterman at Grenada 
and is expected to give a big 
boost in the Millsaps line. 

John Turcotte, a 6-3, 190- 
pounder from Clinton High 
School, will start at defensive 
right tackle Saturday night. 
Turcotte was an all-around 
athlete at Clinton, earning 
three football letters and four 
baseball stripes. 

Mike Coker will begin at 
defensive safety against Liv- 
ingston State. Coker was a 
three year letterman at Jack-

son Murrah in football and 
also gained a monogram his 
senior year on the fine Mus- 
tang track team. 

Top Man 
Danny Neeley, a 170-pound 
senior from Pearl-McLaurin, 
will draw the starting 
quarterbacking duties. Neely 
was a four year letterman at 
Pearl and was a two year 
starter at Hinds Junior Col- 
lege. 

Timmie Millis, switched 
recently from center, will be 
the starting fullback. Millis, a 
senior from Mendenhall, is 
5-10 and weighs 190. He has 
not played fullback since his 
prep days but Davis stated 
that he was doing a fine job 
as a running back. 

Troy Lee Jenkins, a grad- 
uate of Utica High, will draw 
the starting left halfback nod. 
Jenkins weighs 165 and is a 
breakaway threat. 

Edwin Massey, a senior 
from Laurel, is a 178-pound 
halfback and start at right 
half this year. Massey, the 
largest of the Millsaps half- 
backs, will also start at a de- 
fensive secondary position. 
Guard Spot 

Jimmy Waide will start at 
the right guard slot. Waide, a 
graduate of West Point High 
School, is a 185 pounder and 
possesses better than average 
quickness for a lineman 

Bill Milton, a 208 - pound 
graduate of McComb High, 
and John Hart, a 210-pound 
Biloxi High product, will hold 
down the starting tackle slots. 

Jerry Pearson, a 166-pound, 
5-11 junior from Houston 
High, and Ted Weller, a 
stocky 195-pounder from Chat- 
ham, will provide the Majors 
with strength at the ends 

Defensively, Massey, Coker, 
and Jerry Huskey will make 
up the secondary. Gerald Rob- 
bins will start on cornerback, 
Stanley Graham at middle 
guard, Milton and Turcotte at 
the tackles, Millis and David 
Martin will back the line, 
while Waide and Weller nail 
down the ends.

Self-Service Xerox Copier Installed 

The process of reproduction has taken on new dimen- 
sions at Millsaps. 

Warning: When eerie green lights start flashing 
around in the Millsaps-Wilson Library, don't send out 
UFO reports. More than likely it will only be the new 
Xerox 914 copier in operation. 

The new Xerox machine was installed during the 
summer to replace the outdated Thermofax. 

The 914 copier is coin-operated, easy to use, and 
makes clear copies from documents, books, magazines, 
and most anything else. The Xerox installer even made 
a copy of his wrist-watch! 

The machine is for the use of students and facutly on 
a self-service basis. Easy-to-follow directions are oo a 
wall in the library.

Symposium: Of Commodes And Kings And Everything 




By JIM CARROLL 
For 



U miglior f abbro 

Three years at Millsaps can 
have a profound effect on a 
person, both in intellectual 
life and in plain old life in 
general. 

Aside from the vast knowl- 
edge we have gained here, 
we have learned three rules 
ot what not to do: 

1. Don't take any more 
courses in Sullivan - Harrell 
Hall than you have to if you 
aren't a science major. 

2. Don't spit into a strong 
wind ("spit" not being used 
in its primary sense.) 

3. And don't try to do any- 
thing that Ron Goodbread has 
done before, as you'll always 
come out looking like a sec- 
ond-rater. 

I have never been more 
aware of this than when I 
found out that the distin- 
guished and very able editor 
of the Purple and White, R. 
B. Smith, had asked Ron to 
write my Symposium column 
for this the first edition 
of the 1966-67 P&W. (Edi- 
tor's Note: In defense of the 
editor — Ronald Goodbread is 
a blasted stool pigeon. The 
editor only wanted to 
sure Mr. Goodbread 
his keep, "seein* as how" he 
wriggled out of writing his 
final column for last semes- 
ter. Rave on, Mr. Carroll.) 

When Ron so graciously de- 
clined (I'd have broken his 
back if he hadn't), it was left 
for me to pick up the pieces 
of my shattered pride and try 
to carry on, following the dif- 



ficulty, nay, insurmountable 
example which Mr. Good- 
bread set for us in writing 
Symposium last year. 

College In Transformation 

Millsaps is a college in 
transformation. Indeed, we 
are living at the end of an 
era. Gone (we hope) are the 
days when the presidency of 
the college was a stepping 
stone to the bishopric of a 
Methodist Church. 

Burton and Galloway Halls, 
in use for half a century, will 
never again torture those 
good men who tried to take 
a shower at the same time 
someone else was flushing the 
downstairs commode. Found- 
ers Hall is being remodeled 
inside for use as classrooms 
and business offices. Two 
new dormitories will be put 
into use for the first time 
this year, and a fine arts 
building is scheduled to be 
constructed in 1967. 

The Ford Foundation has 
given us a million and a half 
dollars— if we can raise 3.75 
million. 

Dr. Graves and the admin- 
istration have embarked on 
a program to raise teachers' 
salaries to a competitive lev- 
el. 

The curriculum is being re- 
vised so as to improve the 
quality of education which 
our students receive. 

These and other changes 
are helping Millsaps to move 
forward, as ever, a leader of 
education in Mississippi and 
the South. 

More Changes Needed 

Yet there are other im- 
provements which need to be 
made— many with which the 
students themselves can help. 

Millsaps needs an honor 
system. (This will be my sub- 
ject in a later Symposium.) 

Millsaps needs better Greek 
relations. Admittedly, rela- 
tions improved last year with 
the introduction of the Greek 
Week activities, as well as a 
general cooling of inter-Greek 
rivalries. But I feel that more 
needs to be done. 




Kolb's Cleaners has a 
special department to 
give your knit garments 
the expert care they require.

The general problem is not 
with the individuals within the 
groups getting along. It has 
been my observation that, 
when dealing with one anoth- 
er individually, the members 
tend to be quite agreeable. It 
is rather when a group of 
Lambda Chi's and a group of 
Pikes (or a group of KA's 
and a group of Sigs) get to- 
gether that trouble develops. 
Certainly some cases prove 
exceptions to this rule. And 
granted some inter-fraternity 
rivalry is necessary and good. 
But quite often it leads to 
situations which develop into 
something which everybody 
wishes hadn't happened. 

What I would propose is 
more open parties as a first 
step toward better relations. 
I don't think that this alone 
will solve the problem, but I 
do feel that open parties can 
be of great benefit in helping 
the groups toward a better 
knowledge and understanding 
of each other as groups. 
Student Government 

An area which is literally 
crying out for improvement 
is the student government. It 
is not in leadership that the 
government is lacking. Our 
difficulty lies primarily in 
student interest and partici- 
pation. Too often in the past, 
the student body has allowed 
itself to remain ignorant 
about the campus issues and 
problems, then howled at the 
"ineffectiv e", "mickey 
mouse" student government. 
It is hoped that the activi- 
ties of the Student Senate will 
be aided and underscored or 
positively challenged by all 
the students. 

Support The Teams 

Perhaps it is an overworked 
theme (if possible), but we 
need to support our athletic 
teams much more strongly 
than we have in the past. Cer- 
tainly nothing is more dis- 
couraging than going out on 
the football field or basketball 
court without the assurance 
that at least a large percent- 
age of the school you repre- 
sent is backing you, not only 
by "sort of hoping" that you 
win, but by being there and 
hollering like hell for you. 

Dr. Montgomery, Coach 
Davis, Coach Ranager, and 
many friends of the college 
have recruited some outstand- 
ing athletic talent since the 
launching of the Diamond An- 
niversary Scholarship Pro- 
gram. Millsaps has outstand- 
ing men to coach our teams. 
Millsaps has outstanding men 
to play on our teams. All we 



need now is all-out student 
support of our athletic pro- 
gram to make the coming 
year the best in a long time 
for our squads. 

Advice To Freshmen 

And now a few words of 
advice for the freshmen: 

Don't put your arm around 
a girl in Mrs. McNair's dorm. 

Don't take a course from 
Mr. Hooker if you're out for 
debate. 

Check out your insurance 
before you pledge Phi Mu — 
someone has threatened to 
burn down their house. 

Don't leave the dorm with 



less than $50 if you have a 
date with a KD. 

Don't whistle "Yankee Doo- 
dle" behind the library. 

Study. 

Trust all women. 

Take Mrs. Cost as for Span- 
ish 101. 

Go to all home football and 
basketball games. 

Ask Coach Monty for ad- 
vice about women. 

Vote Democratic. 

Stay away from MC. 

Ask Dean Christmas before 
going on panty raids. 

Study. 

And finally, dear freshmen, 
don't try to go with a girl at 
home if it's over 50 miles 
(voice of experience). 



University Bridge with Larry Cohen 

1966 Intercollegiate Champion 



EDITOR'S NOTE: "Uni- 
versity Bridge" with Larry 
Cohen, University of Wiscon- 
sin senior and 1966 Intercol- 
legiate Bridge Tournament 
Champion, will be a regular 
feature in the P&W this se- 
mester if student 
proves favorable. 

Squeeze plays may be a bit 
advanced for you this early 
in the game. But keeping 
alert in this corner every 
week will soon have you 
breaking par in intercolle- 
giate competition. 

Three NT making three 
was worth most of the match

cent St. Louis tournament.

All declarers won the third 
round of spades. Seeing only 
eight tricks, most declarers 
now tried to steal a heart 
trick, leading small toward 
the king. West will not toler- 
ate such thievery. He rises 
with the ace and cashes the 
setting spade tricks. 

Subtle declarers saw the 
chance to squeeze the ninth 
trick. West is likely to hold 
the heart ace and the club 
honors for his double, they 
reasoned. They ran six dia- 
mond tricks and West is in 
discard trouble! 

West can pitch two hearts 
and two clubs on the dia- 
monds but he does not have 
another safe discard. When 
declarer leads his last dia- 
mond, the squeeze mate- 
rializes with this position:

Majors Clobber Sewanee, 40-28 



By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 

Harper Davis stated that 
the Livingston State game 
was the most exciting ever 
played under him. But now 
he may have some second 
thoughts. 

The Majors, after trailing 
2a-14 at one point, lashed 
back in a powerful second 
half surge to defeat the Uni- 
versity of the South, 40-28, at 
Sewanee, Tenn. last week. 

"It was a courageous 
game," commented Davis. 

"They had us 28-14 and we 
hadn't stopped one Sewanee 
drive. Our defense," he con- 
tinued, "was flat, completely 
flat, but we came back and 
our offense carried us 
through." 

Halted Early 

The Majors received the 
opening kick - off but were 
halted early by a fumble and 
a few plays later Ernest Kirk 
plunged over from the three 
yard stripe and Mike Under- 



wood's PAT gave Sewanee a 
7-0 lead. 

The Millsaps bunch took the 
kickoff, drove the rest of the 
way, and T i m m y Millis 
strolled across the goal line 
for the TD. John Turcot te, a 
freshman defensive tackle, 
booted the point after, tying 
the score, 7-7. 

The Sewanee Tigers scored 
next late in the first quarter 
after a Millsaps fumble on the 
Major six-yard line. «U took 
four plays before Charles Gig- 
nilliant, Sewanee's brilliant 
tailback, scored. Underwood's 
kick gave Sewanee a 14-7 ad- 
vantage. 

Jenkins Returns 

After a 50-yard run back of 
the kick-off by Troy Lee 
Jenkins, the Majors marched 
again. Jenkins went over for 
the score and Turcotte made 
it 14-14 with his PAT. 

The Tigers next scored on 
a bomb from Gignilliant to 
end Mike Knickelbine and Un- 
derwood's extra point put Se- 



wanee out front, 21-14. 

With 3:03 left in the half, 
Jim Beam, who the Majors 
had kept bottled up all day, 
scored on a short dive, Un- 
derwood's automatic foot 
swung and Sewanee held a 
comfortable 28-14 lead. 
Last Play 

On the last play of the first 
half, however, Danny Neely 
drilled Ted Weller with a 10- 
yard scoring strike but Tur- 
cotte's kick was wide and Se- 
wanee led 28-20 at intermis- 
sion. 

Davis told his team at half- 
time that if they could score 
20 more points and hold Se- 
wanee pointless, they could 
go home with a victory. 

Well, that's the story in a 
nutshell. 

Neely Scores 

Early in the third period 
Neely climaxed a sustained 
Major drive with a scoring 
run of his own but when he 
tried to tie the game up by 
running the extra point, he 



failed and Sewanee held a 
not-so-comfortable 28-26 mar- 
gin. 

In the fourth period, with 
9:48 showing, Neely again hit 
Weller in the end-zone, and 
John Hamby's kick sent Mill- 
saps ahead for the first and 
last time, 33-28. 

Clinch Victory 

The Majors clinched the 
victory when Neely peppered 
Weller with the third Touch- 
down pass of the game, Ham- 
by put the kick between the 
crossbars and Millsaps tri- 
umphed 40-28. 

The Tigers ran up 10 first 
downs in the first half. In the 
second half they got only 
three. The Millsaps defense 
had "jelled." Millsaps got 22 
first downs in the contest. 

Neely completed 16 of 25 
pass attempts for 204 aerial 
yards against 133 for Sewanee 
which is an all-male institu- 
tion with an enrollment al- 
most equal to that of Mill- 



saps. 

470 Total Yards 

The Majors fought for 266 
yards on the ground, and Se- 
wanee picked up 169. 

Edwin Massey, who had a 
shakey offensive first half but 
came back to play a steady 
second, intercepted a pass, 
the only steal of the game. 

Davis said that the whole 
team played a fine game and 
did not single out any play- 
ers, but did say that four or 
five played the best games of 
their careers. 

The Majors are idle this 
week-end but play Austin Col- 
lege next week.

Improvements Needed 



In The Blue Pill Dispensary 



You want me to take a blue pill and 
go back to class? You're really sure 
that's what you want me to do? But you 
don't understand. My foot's rotting off- 
blood poisoning, I think. . .oh. . .then I 
can crawl back. . .? 

Well, maybe it's not quite that bad 
(on second thought, maybe it is), but a 
certain local nurse is definitely not ac- 
claimed for either her efficiency or her 
bedside manner (the latter being neither 
here nor there at the moment). 

Just last week an incident involving 
food poisoning resulted in a mass exodus 
of women from two sororities to Nurse 
Nora's dungeon, otherwise known as the 
Millsaps infirmary. 

The expressions of disgust and even 
alarm which subsequently arose were 
reminiscent of the mood of the campus 
during "mono season" last year. 

While we feel it is a magnificent ges- 
ture on the part of the college to pro- 
vide Nursie with a home (be it ever so 
musty - smelling), we strongely believe 
that some action should be taken to miti- 
gate the danger of students' health being 
placed in jeopardy. 

Inaccurate diagnosing, which is far 
too rampant here, can be extremely dan- 
gerous — especially when a four-week- 
case of infectious mononucleosis is light- 
ly dismissed as measles or infectitious 
hepatitis as a cold. 

These are not isolated examples. 

We do concede, though, that in the 
case of mono, the person making the 



diagnosis cannot be held totally respon- 
sible since this disease is pretty difficult 
to pin down. 

But the consequences of a wrong 
diagnosis remain. Therefore, since mono 
season is almost upon us and since the 
nurse needs all the help she can get, we 
suggest that the administration check 
into a recent development along these 
lines— the "Mono Test", a simple, inex- 
pensive diagnostic test which reveals the 
presence of mono in only two minutes. 

"Mono Test" is distributed by Warn- 
pole Laboratories of Stamford, Conn, to 
medical groups and school and campus 
health centers as well as to hospital and 
laboratories. 

Along the lines of campus medical 
facilities, we present three more sugges- 
tions: 

(1) That the infirmary be fumigated 
or that students not be required to suf- 
fer there when the doctor or nurse pre- 
scribes bed rest. The dorms are much 
more conducive to rest. 

(2) That the school keep the infirma- 
ry stocked with Cokes to drink with blue 
pills so patients won't have to listen to 
constant reminders that they are indebt- 
ed to the nurse for drinking her Cokes. 

(3) That the school supply the in- 
firmary with enough wash cloths and 
towels so that the patient won't have to 
use the same one in the morning that 
he used the night before. (This is espe- 
cially unpleasant when the malady is 
an upset stomach.)— M.S. 



LETTERS AND CARTOONS TO THE EDITOR 



Independents Rate 
Recognition, T oo! 

Dear Editor, 

In the excellent article by 
Miss Anderson, the society 
editor. I saw the list of recent 
pledges and to them I offer 
my condolences. I did not, 
however, see listed the names 
of the "instant actives" who 
recently joined the I n d e- 
pendents. 

I have always thought that 
Independents should be rec- 
ognized for their stability in 
not requiring a 4 'peer group 
protection plan" to maintain 
a fruitful and productive col- 
lege career.

Thanks From The

To the Members of 
the Student Body: 

Thank you all so much for 
your many kindnesses to me. I 
hope to be able to thank each 
of you personally, eventually, 
but meanwhile, please know 
that you have been very much 
in my thoughts, and that an- 
ticipation of seeing you all 
again has helped me get well. 

Sincerely,

Sends Regards 

Dear Madame Editor: 

May I take this opportunity 
to thank Senator Jim Carroll 
for the dedication of his fine 
inaugural column of 10 Sep- 
tember. This is truly first- 
rate work and would that this 
poor hack could have done as 
well when he did such in- 
justice to it last year. B u t 
fortunately we old has-beens 
must step aside at some time 
or other to allow truly great 
men to restore the shattered 
mess we have made of our 
past. 

I also want to comment on 
the very keen insight that my 
great and good friend Geary

MATTERS 

MARIE SMITH 
Editor 




"You bat your brains out, break some bones, get 
cut and bruised and you keep wondering if its worth 
it all. Then you win a game 650 miles from home and 
. . . well ... the trip back doesn't seem nearly so 
long." 



That's a direct quote from 
one of the Millsaps Majors, a 
group that's surging upward 
this year. We're proud of the 
Sewanee victory last weekend 
and of the great fight the 
team put up against Liv- 
ingston State Sept. 10. 

Next week the Majors en- 
counter Austin College in Mill- 
saps' backyard, Alumni Field. 

And let's really support 'em 
—but the word's out that we'll 
have to leave the Hoddy 
Toddy language to Old Miss 
Rebels and Millsaps pro- 
fessors. 

Hypnotist 'Stupendous' 

Martin St. James' perform- 
ance last Friday night was 
nothing short of stupendous. 
The Millsaps Student Execu- 
tive Board merits a huge 
round of applause for its ef- 
forts in bringing him to the 
campus. 

To those who missed this 
treat of a lifetime, we'd like 
to be able to say merely, "It 
was your own loss." However 
. . . the chances of getting 
top quality performers here 
again this year were reduced 
considerably since the SEB 
landed several hundred dol- 
lars in the hole. If we are 
given another chance to re- 
deem ourselves, here's pre- 
dicting a 90 per cent turnout; 
few would dare risk missing 
another Martin St. James. 
An Old Issue 

Last semester the Purple 
and White advocated the im- 
plementation of some type of 
system whereby students 
could evaluate their profes- 
sors from time to time. We 
felt such a program would be 
beneficial to all involved— stu- 
dents, faculty and administra- 
tion. 

In addition to keeping stu- 
dents from exploding from re- 
pressed frustration, we felt 
that occasional jolts of con- 
structive criticism might 
awaken certain professors 
from the blissful illusion that 
they're earning their pay. 

The administration 



expressed what we in- 
interpreted as genuine inter- 
est in the possibility of such a 
system. 

We sincerely hope the mat- 
ter has not been pigeon-holed 
and that the administrative 
committee will issue a report 
soon. 

Magazine Kleptos 

Several students have is- 
sued pleas of mercy to mag- 
azine kleptomaniacs: Please 
don't remove assigned read- 
ing material from the library! 
It's pretty disgusting when 
one starts to carry out an as- 
signment and finds that one 
of his colleagues has tucked 
the publication under h i s 
grubby little arm and plodded 
out of the library with it. 
This is the ultimate in uneth- 
ical conduct — placing the 
grades of 15 to 30 fellow stu- 
dents in jeopardy. 

Curses! 

Quote of the week: "I guess 
I'd make a good Sig except 
that I don't drink and I don't 
smoke and I wear socks occa- 
sionally, but I can curse with 
the best of 'em.— Jim Waide

Ptayers Stage 
'Oliver!' First 



By SHEILA BLAND 

The first production of the 
season for the Millsaps Play- 
ers is to be the celebrated 
Broadway production of Oli- 
ver!, the stage adaptation of 
Charles Dickens' novel, Oli- 
ver Twist. 

The story is much the same 
—that of the small, orphaned 
boy's fight for survival and 
the characters that help or 
hinder his struggle. But 
touches of music and simpli- 
fication of plot make it a 
pleasure to see and hear. 
Goss Directing 
Directed by Lance Goss, 
the hit musical promises 
more honor for Millsaps. Mu- 
sical director is Leland Byler. 



Several familiar songs from 
the score are "As Long As 
He Needs Me," "Where Is 
Love," "Consider Yourself," 
•Td Do Anything For You," 
and the theme song, "Oli- 
ver!" 

Set designer is Vic Clark. 

The cast, chosen after audi- 
tions, is Nancy, the female 
lead, a tragic character 
played by Jebby Burlson; 
Bill Sykes, portrayed by Mike 
Allen, her boyfriend who 
doesn't reciprocate her affec- 
tions. 

Oliver himself is Bill Brun- 
son, the young brother of Cin- 
dy Brunson. 

The harsh and cruel Mr. 
Bumble is Cliff Dow ell; his 
companion, the widow Cor-

Millsaps Band 
Recruiting 
New Members 

By MARGARET STONE 




Have you ever longed to be 
a star? 

There you are, in the mid- 
dle of the stage, the lights on 
you, the applause thunderous. 
Now's your chance! 
The Millsaps Band under 
the capable direction of Bob 
Kemp, former member of the 
famed Lion's All-State Band, 
has issued a plea for clari- 
nets, oboes, bassoons, in fact, 
any reed instrument player 
interested. 

And besides, the snake- 
charming business is in the 
midst of an off-season now.

flutes. Practice hours are on 
Sundays at 4 p. m, Mondays 
at 6 p. m., and Tuesdays at 6 
p. m. in Galloway Hall. Par-

There are no special virtues 
attached to a college or uni- 
versity because of the nature 
of its support. The main cri- 
terion is the quality of its pro- 
gram. Strong privately sup- 
ported and strong publicly 
supported institutions are 
both essential to the well-be- 
ing of American society.

Symposium: Where Do You Stand— With The Froops, Wugs, Gleebs, or. ? 




By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

"Many a man has 
lived to regret a 
misspent youth." 

When this writer was 
in high school, the prin- 
cipal of the school used 
to spend a great deal of 
time talking about the 
tremendous responsibil- 
ity which is thrust upon 
youth at such an early 
age. 

This man felt that the first 
years in high school were 
the years when a student us- 
ually determined the course 
of his career — indeed of his 
life. We used to think about 
this a great deal. Once the 
man even went so far as to 
say that he really didn't feel 
that it was fair for a person 
so young to have such a big 
responsibility. 

Clearer Now 

This writer never did agree 
with him fully on that point, 
but since we have been in 
college, we have come to see 
more clearly what he meant. 
Americans have traditionally 
considered youth as a time 
primarily for fun. As the 
world in which we are living 
bocomes more and more 
technical and complicated, 



however, it is becoming in- 
creasingly clear that the 
American tradition of a care- 
free youth is a luxury which 
our nation can no longer af- 
ford. 

More Toys, More Freedom 

Nevertheless, there are still 
those who come to college 
with the concept of the cam- 
pus as a playhouse distin- 
guished from high school sole- 
ly by fact that one has ac- 
cess to more toys and has 
more freedom to play with 
those toys. 

Now if what that educator 
said is even partly true, it be- 
hooves everyone who comes 
to Millsaps to wipe the play- 
house concept out of his or 
her mind. College, unlike high 
school, is not a mere prepa- 
ration for life; college in a 
very real sense is a strong 
taste of what the "cold, cruel 
world" is really like. Anyone 
with any real insight knows 
that he or she cannot get any- 
where in the business or pro- 
fessional world without work- 
ing. 

Yet a great many people 
expect to succeed in college 
with only a minimum of ef- 
fort. 

Academic Success Harder 
It won't take a person long 
to find out that he can't suc- 
ceed at Millsaps academical- 
ly if he doesn't work hard. 
But convincing some people 
of the importance of apply- 
ing themselves fully is often 
quite difficult. 

Unfortunately, it is not as 
hard to succeed socially at 
Millsaps or any other school 
as it is to be an academic 
success. Consequently, a 
great many people who are 
not willing to pay tsae price 
of academic success become 
what this writer likes to re- 



Inquiries Invited On 
Danforth Fellowships 



Inquiries about the Danforth 
Graduate Fellowships, to be 
awarded in March, 1967, are 
invited, according to Dr. Rob- 
ert E. Bergmark the local 
campus representative. 

The Fellowships, offered by 
the Danforth Foundation of 
St. Louis, Missouri, are open 
to men and women who are 
seniors or recent graduates of 
accredited colleges in the 
United States, who have 
serious interest in c o 1 1 e g e 
teaching as a career, and who 
plan to study for a PhD in a 
field common to the ungrad- 
uate college. 

Applicants may be single or 
married, must be less than 30 
years of age at the time of 
application, and may not have 
undertaken any graduate or 
professional study beyond the 
baccalaureate. 

Candidates nominated 

Approximately 120 Fellow- 
ships will be awarded in 
March, 1967. Candidates must 
be nominated by Liaison Offi- 
cers of their undergraduate 
institutions by November 1, 
1966. The Foundation does not 
accept direct applications for 



the Fellowships. 

Danforth Graduate Fellows 
are eligible for four years of 
financial assistance, with a 
maximum annual living 
stipend of $2400 for single Fel- 
lows and $2950 for married 
Fellows, plus tuition and fees. 
Dependency allowances are 
available. Financial need is 
not a condition for considera- 
tion. 

About Other Awards 

Danforth Fellows may hold 
other fellowships such as 
Ford, Fulbright, National Sci- 
ence, Rhodes, Woodrow Wil- 
son, etc. concurrently, and 
will be Danforth Fellows with- 
out stipend until the other 
awards lapse. 

The Danforth Foundation 
was founded in 1927 by the 
late William H. Danforth, St. 
Louis businessman and 
philanthropist. The Founda- 
tion's primary aim is to 
strengthen education through 
programs of fellowships and 
workshops, and through 
grants to schools, colleges, 
universities and 
tional agencies. 



fer to as "froops" and 
"wugs". 

The Troop' 

You know the froop. He's 
the guy who can always be 
found in the grill sitting at a 
table talking to one or more 
girls, driving around the 
campus in his car waving at 
people, or sitting in the dorm 
at night telling his best bud- 
dies (and anybody else that 
will listen) about the latest 
girl he has snowed. 

The Froop wears the very 
latest in men's fashions, al- 
ways is planning a new way 
to have a good time, gets into 
shaving cream fights in the 
dorm, carries more extracur- 
ricular than academic hours, 
goes out and gets plastered 
any time someone suggests a 
drink, and has a .785 quality 
point index. (He got a C in 
freshman English by hiring 
someone else to write his 
term paper). He hasn't been 
drafted because his old man 
has "a friend on the draft 
board." (Usually pointed out 
by him with a sly giggle). 
The 'Wug' 
The female of the species 
(and to many people, includ- 
ing this writer, is more dis- 
gusting than the froop), we 
like to call a "wug." 

Wugs are just about as 
easy to spot as froops, al- 
though their characteristics 
may vary from wug to wug. 

Like the froop, the wug can 
usually be found sitting in the 
grill. She may or may not be 
one of the girls that the froop 
is sitting with. She can fre- 
quently be seen gracefully 
blowing smoke out of the up- 
per left hand corner of her 
mouth over the heads of the 
froops or wugs that she is 
with. She dates froops be- 
cause, naturally, they can give 
her more social status and 
are much easier to get than 
men. 

The brightness of her smile 
and the intimacy of her af- 
fections are in direct propor- 
tion to the size of the pocket- 
book which is being waved in 
her face. Unlike the froop, 
however, the wug cannot al- 
ways be catagorized by bad 
grades. Quite often she has 
very good grades. This is be- 
cause she takes the easiest 
courses she can and always 
the ones in which the teacher 
gives the same tests year aft- 
er year. That way she can 
get all the old tests out of the 
wug sorority files. 

Because it doesn't take too 
much money to be a wug, it 
is much easier to be a wug 
than a froop. Consequently, 
there are usually more wugs 
than froops; but that is all 
right, because the froops 
have plenty of frooping to 



go a r o u n d and are able to 
take care of most of the wugs. 
The 'Gleebs' 

On the other hand, you have 
the gleebs. A gleeb is a per- 
son who comes to school with 
a built-in inferiority complex, 
because he doesn't have 
enough money to be a froop 
or a wug. Both male and fe- 
male gleebs are so much alike 
that we are able to classify all 
of them under the general 
heading of "gleeb." 

Gleebs are just the opposite 
of froops and wugs. They 
spend all of their time trying 
to prove to everyone (includ- 
ing themselves) that they are 
intellectuals. 

The one characteristic that 
gleebs have in common with 
the froops and wugs is their 
passion for the grill. They are 
the ones who come in and 
find a part of the grill where 
they can be seen sitting 
curled up in a booth reading 
a book. (It is very important 
that everyone else in the grill 
be able to see them.) 

Gleebs do not participate in 
many extracurricular activi- 
ties, because they "don't have 
the time to take from their 
studies." They are an exclu- 
sive group, usually associ- 
ating only with other gleebs. 

Some of the general gleeb 
characteristics include long 
unkept hair, dangling shirt 
tails, a two - day growth of 
beard, and a surprisingly uni- 
form lack of manners. 
The 'Normals' 
Somewhere in between the 
froops and wugs on the one 
hand and the gleebs on the 
other lie most normal stu- 
dents. However, there are 
many semi-froops, semi-wugs, 
and semi-gleebs, too. 

Whether it is fair to say 
that people in the groups we 
have just mentioned are 
"misspending their youths" 
we won't try to say. 

But one thing is sure. None 
of these people are getting 
their money's worth out of 
their college education. 

The froops and wugs are 
profiting little, if any, from 
the intellectual offerings of 
the college. The gleebs miss 
out on as much, if not more, 
than the froops and wugs, be- 
cause they are not taking ad- 
vantage of the opportunity 
college is offering them to 
learn how to live and to get 
along in a world which de- 
mands more out of an indi- 
vidual than what he can learn 
from a book. 

Student's Decision 
There is no doubt that Mill- 
saps is the best college in 
this state. But one can get a 
"bad" education at Millsaps 
just as he can get a "good" 
education at Ole Miss or Del- 



Drivers Urged To Renew Licenses 

Are you one of 125,000 whose drivers license will expire 
on September 30? 

If so, you are advised by Commissioner of Public Safe- 
ty T. B. Birdsong to renew early and avoid the rush. 

Renewal is $2.75 for one year or $5.25 for two years, by 
any renewal agent; or $2.50 for one year and $5.00 for two 
years at your State Patrol Headquarters Building, Jack- 
son, Mississippi. 



ta State. 

it is completely up to the 
individual as to what he or 
she is willing to gain from 
the college experience. 

All of us are a bit older 
than we were when that first 
responsibility was thrust upon 
us early in high school, and 
most students are ma- 
ture enough to accept that re- 
sponsibility now. 

Unfortunately, H IS too 
great a responsibility for some. 

But don't worry if you are 
a gleeb, wug, or froop. 

The chances are that you 
won't be very long — most of 
them either transfer out of 
Millsaps after a year or two — 
or they just quietly fade 
away.

Famed Mentalist-Hypnotist 



St. James A s Rip-Roaring 5 Sensation 



By MARIE SMITH 



It was a scream! An abso- 
lute hysterical, rollicking, 
rip-roaring scream! 

That's an inadequate de- 
scription but how do you de- 
scribe Martin St. James' per- 
formance Friday night? It was 
literally too sensational for 
words. 

Try to imagine Mark Math- 
eny, the illustrious vice-pres- 
ident of the Millsaps student 
body as a commode. That's 
right! Martin St. James 
famed hypnotist and ESP ex- 
pert from Australia, through 
his mysterious hypnotic pow- 
ers had Mr. Matheny, Ann 
Byrd, Fran Duquette, Kent 
Olsen, Dale Brackin, Sheila 
Bland, Karen Allen, Chuck 
Hallford, Ronnie Freer, Bill 
Roberts, Judy Beall, and Rod- 
ney Meek operating under the 
illusion that they were chick- 
ens, opera singers, coffeepots, 
typewriters, adding machines, 
commodes, etc. 

Ann Byrd, there's no deny- 
ing, almost stole the show at 
points. She flat had her heart 
in it. 

Ex-Lax, Anyone? 

Then there was Chuck Hall- 
ford. Bless him, he never did 
get that imaginary goose to 
come out with a golden egg, 
but the failure was due to no 
lack of effort on Chuck's part. 
Quote: "You hold him while 
I squeeze. Does anybody have 
any Ex-lax? No! Don't sit on 
my goose! (tearfully) I TOLD 
you not to sit on my goose!" 

Perhaps Judy Beall, 
Chuck's "wife" has remitted 



somewhat in her refusal to 
forgive him for trading her 
imaginary fur stole for a 
dumb impotent goose. 

But poor Chuck didn't 
escape with the mere act of 
trying to help a goose lay a 
golden egg. He was sent rac- 
ing desperately through the 
CC aisles upon the discovery 
that he had forgotten his 
pants (or thought he had un- 
til he reached the back door). 
Then to add to his humilia- 
tion he was brought to task 
several times by the Presi- 
dent of the United States in 
the form of Ronnie Greer. 

Ronnie Greer, Alias LBJ 

Speaking from atop a chair 
in the CC, Mr. Greer, under 
the assumption that he was 
LBJ, proceeded to espouse his 
plans for the world: 

Question from the audi- 
ence): Mr. President, who are 
you going to appoint for at- 
torney general? 

LBJ: Well, as you know, 
Luci just got married. 

Question: What are you go- 
ing to do about Viet Nam? 

LBJ: Sink it. 

Question: What are you go- 
ing to do about the fact that 
Alaska is larger than Texas? 

LBJ: Sink part of it with 
Viet Nam. 

Question: Mr. Presi- 
dent, what are you going to 
do about the Kennedys? 

LBJ: One of them in par- 
ticular can join Aalska and 
Viet Nam. 

Question: What are you go- 
ing to do about De Gaulle? 

LBJ: He's a friend of the 
Kennedys. We'll sink him, too. 




BELLY DANCER — Dale Brackin put the crowd in an uproar Friday night as she did a slithery 
belly dance down the aisles of the Christian Center. She was under hypnosis, of course. 



Question: Mr. President, 
what are you going to do 
about Mississippi? 

LBJ: Heh, heh, heh. 

Question: What do you think 
about hypnotists? 

LBJ: I don't believe in 
them. Next Question? 

Ballet and Snake Dancers 

The "President" was some- 
what riled and insulted by in- 
termittent performances by 
Millsaps star ballet dancers, 
Kent Olsen and Rodney Meek, 
and a swinging snake dance 
in the aisles by Dale Brack- 
in. Then insult was added to 
injury when Fran Duquette 
sauntered up and asked the 
illustrious leader if he wanted 
to purchase some hot peanuts. 

"Even Hubert doesn't eat 




IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE— No, it's not a mass orgy in the Christian Center. It's just that 
Ann Byrd and Sheila Bland couldn't help themselves. Really! Under the hypnotic spell of 
Martin St, James Friday night, they were ordered to grab the nearest male when the music 
played, I'M IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE and proceed to . . . well . . . (The victims are Bob 
Ridgeway, left, and Kent Robertson.)

peanuts during my speeches 
—Ladybird may, but not Hu- 
bert!" he chided. 

Of course the fact that 
Mark Matheny insisted upon 
marching up and down the 
aisles in Nazi fashion scream- 
ing "hup-two-three-four; hi- 
yup, two, three, four!" didn't 
help the dignitary's nerves 
either. 

And several times the in- 
nocuous voice of Martin St. 
James broke through the up- 
roar with the interrogation, 
"What's going on out there? 
Who are you, sir?" 

'I'm LBJ, Son!' 

Whereupon Ronnie replied 
with utter indignation, "I'm 
Lyndon Baines Johnson, son! 
And I think you're the insti- 
gator of all this. Would you 
please have a seat so I can 
finish my speech. Uh, you. . . 
you up there. . .HEY DUCK- 
TAILS, SIT DOWN!" 

The classic statement of the 
evening, though, was Ron- 
nie's. . .uh. . .LBJ's magnifi- 
cent bit of advice to Karen 
Allen when she suddenly re- 
turned to her seat on the 
stage with the announcement 
that her seat "out there" (in 
the audience) was too hard. 



Raising his hand with a patri- 
otic flourish he cried, "Ask 
not what your seat can do for 
you. . ." 

When Ronnie was final- 
ly demesmerized and asked 
what he was doing standing 
on top of the chair, he calmly 
replied, "Would you believe 
. . .making a fool of myself?" 
Mickey Mouse Student?' 

However, fools love compa- 
ny and Bonnie wasn't alone. 

Incidentally, ask Ann Byrd 
what happened to her seventh 
finger. She swore up and 
down they were numbered 1- 
2-3-4-5-6-8-9-10 and one of her 
cohorts suggested that she 
must have taken "Mickey 
Mouse." 

And ask Mark Matheny 
about this one: "Do you loose 
your charm when you raise 
your arm?" A good initial 
project for the new Student 
Senate would be the passage 
of legislation providing for the 
purchase on the part of the 
student body of a king-sized 
bottle of Secret for vice-presi- 
dent Matheny. 

Friday night was not soon 
to be forgotten by several 
hundred people!

When Millsaps* Majors rode 
into Pritchard, Ala. Saturday 
Sept. 11, victory was on their 
minds, but after the Majors 
led for a large portion of the 
game, Livingston State scored 
and took the victory with 
7:49 remaining. 

Coach Harper Davis said 
that it was the most exciting 
game played under him since 
he came to Millsaps in 1964. 

The Majors wasted no time 
scoring the initial TD. In nine 
plays, Danny Neely tossed to 
end Ted Weller anf following 
the failure of the PAT at- 
tempt, the Millsaps crew led 
6-0. 

Livingston State drove to 
the Millsaps 13 yard line be- 
fore being halted on a key 
interception by Gerald Rob- 
bins. 

The Majors drove, using 
ball control tactics and John 
Turcotte's 35-yard field goal 
attempt in the second quar- 
ter was off. 

After a series of punts, Liv- 
ingston picked up some mo- 
mentum. Barry Pennington 
tossed a 27-yard completion 
to Barry Halladay, Don Page 
ran for four, and Pennington 
drilled Halladay with a 31- 
yard scoring pass and Pen- 
nington's conversion gave 
Livingston a 7-6 halftime mar- 
gin. 

Robbins Recovers 
Robbins recovered a Liv- 
ingston fumble on the first 
play of the second half and 
two plays later, Neely nailed 
wingback Edwin Massey with 
a 17-yard touchdown toss. 
The fleet quarterback round- 
ed right end for the two point 
conversion and Millsaps led 
14-7. 

An interception held off one 
Livingston drive, but shortly 
thereafter Hamp Gaston 
threw 17-yards for a TD. Mike 
Coker blocked the point after, 
and Millsaps still retained a 
14-13 lead and hope was far 
from gone. 

Defensive Combat 

Another period of defensive 
combat set in before Wayne 
Brunson intercepted a Neely 



aerial and raced to the Mill- 
saps eight. A few plays lat- 
er, J. C. Adams dove over 
from the on to lift Livingston 
to victory. 

Neely completed 15 of 23 
passes for 208 air yards 
against Livingston while 
only 14 of 24 Livingston 
passes met with success. The 
Majors were a 15-12 leader in 
first downs. 

Jimmy Waide played the 
best defensive game, reported 
Davis, and Neely had the best 
day offensively.

Intra-Mural 
Meeting Is 
Successful 

The first meeting of the In- 
tra-Mural Council was held 
last week with Pi Kappa Al- 
pha's Jimmy Williams, coun- 
cil president, presiding. 

With coach Jim Montgom- 
ery acting as executive secre- 
tary, the council set up a gen- 
eral schedule with volleyball 
the first big event on tap. 

The annual pre-Christmas 
MIT basketball tournament 
was discussed at this meeting. 

The council plans to tie its 
work in with the Student Un- 
ion ping-pong and pool en- 
counters. 

Another meeting was to be 
held Thursday to work out 
definite schedules for the vol- 
leyball and other events. 

Representatives from a 1 1 
teams participating in intra- 
murals take part in these 
weekly meetings and Williams 
and Montgomery both urged 
stronger representation from 
the independents. 

A tenative arrangement for 
soccer competition was set up 
and this inexpensive, a 1 1- 
weather sport that is sweep- 
ing the country could become 
a permanent recreation at 



STRONG ARM— Danny Neely, 
the Majors ace senior signal 
caller this year, has tossed 
five touchdown passes this 
season, three of them to end 
Ted Weller. Neely has com- 
pleted 30 of 49 pass attempts 
and has led the Majors to the 
highest ground gaining totals 
in many years. The Pearl- 
McLaurin graduate was an all- 
state junior college pick at 
Hinds before transferring to 
Millsaps last year. 




Karate Club 
In 2nd Year 
At Millsaps 

A new sport has worked its 
way into the Millsaps athletic 
program, karate, the oriental 
martial art. 

Actually karate is not new 
on the Millsaps campus. It 
has been here for over a year 
in the form of a club. 
Gardo Instructs 

This year, under the direc- 
tion of Coach Montgomery, it 
was made a part of the reg- 
ular athletic program. 

The instructor, Mr. William 
C. Gardo, holds the rank of 
second degree black belt in 
Isshinryu style karate. Mr. 
Gardo studied karate on Oki- 
nawa under red belt Master 
Tatsuo Shimabuku, who just 
happens to be the fourth mas- 
ter of the world. 

Intercollegiate 

The class hopes -to get 
enough people interested in 
the sport to develope a team, 
which will compete intercol- 
legiately with such schools as 
the University of Tennessee 
and Tulane. 

We of the P&W wish you 
good luck and promise you 
our support.

Selective Service Advises Men To 
Submit Test Applications Now 

Applications for the November 18 and 19, 1966 ad- 
ministrations of the Coilege Qualification Test are now 
available at Selective Service System local boards through- 
out the country. 

Eligible students who intend to take this test should 
apply at once to the nearest Selective Service local board 
for an Application Card and a Bulletin of Information for 
the test. 

Following instructions in the Bulletin, the student should 
fill out his application and mail it immediately in the 
envelope provided to SELECTIVE SERVICE EXAMINING 
SECTION, Educational Testing Service, P. O. Box 988, 
Princeton, New Jersey 08540. Applications for the test 
must be postmarked no later than midnight, October 21,

According to Educational Testing Service, which pre- 
pares and administers the College Qualification Test for 
the Selective Service System, it will be greatly to the stu- 
dent's advantage to file his application at once. By register- 
ing early, he stands the best chance of being assigned to 
the test center he has chosen. Because of the possibility 
that he may be assigned to either of the testing dates, it 
is very important that he list a center and center 
for each date on which he will .be available.

First Student Senate Meeting 



Foretells Exciting Year 



Student Senate is off and running— no 
dragging of feet this year. 
. Tuesday night's meeting, routine in 
one sense, proved very exciting in an- 
other. 

It was characterized by an almost per- 
fect balance of both dignity and enthusi- 
asm, as distinguished from many of the 
Tuesday night farces which we have at- 
tended in the past. 

President Duck is proving himself to 
be a top-notch leader-dignified, sure and 
communicative. 

The fact that he sees his duties as 
entailing far more than the act of pre- 
siding over Senate meetings is very im- 
portant. 

He and his newly-appointed cabinet 
members have been busy for some time 
instituting plans and making new ones 
for this year. The four-member cabinet, 
a unique innovation by President Duck, 
is composed of Paul Newsom, Student 
Body chairman; Beverly Brooks, Execu- 
tive Secretary; John Peal, Motor Vehi- 
cle Comptroller; and John Williams, 
Parliamentarian. 

These executive appointments are not 
to be confused with the actual SEB of- 
fices. Student Executive Board mem- 
bers, in addition to President Duck, are 



Mark Matheny, Polly Dement, and Les- 
lie Jean Floyd, vice president, treasurer, 
and secretary, respectively. 

Duck emphasized Tuesday night that 
the Student Senate is not a policy-mak- 
ing body; policy-making is the responsi- 
bility of the administration and Board of 
Trustees. "But," he added, "Senate 
should have as much weight as the fac- 
ulty does and this is what I will expect 
from the administration and Board of 
Trustees." 

The President then outlined an ambi- 
tious set of issues which Senate will tac- 
kle in the near future. The list includes: 

— An honor system 

— Student money-raising projects to 
help the school meet the Ford Founda- 
tion challenge. 

— A textbook exchange 

— Absentee balloting 

— Revamping of extracurricular activi- 
ties credits 

All platitudes and flowery phrases 
aside, we simply commend the student 
body members for their keen perception 
in choosing such able leaders as those 
which compose the Millsaps Student Sen- 
ate. 

We anticipate a very exciting year.

LETTERS AND CARTOONS TO THE EDITOR 



Student Survivor 
Relates Perils 
Faced In Infirmary 

Dear Editor- 
May I add rny voice to the 
swelling list of students who 
have found the infirmary's 
services inadequate? Though 
I am just a transfer, I have 
already had my life blessed 
with two visits to the rat hole 
of Millsaps College. 

Having been in one of the 
two sororities that was nearly 
wiped out, I feel qualified to 
offer my experience as fur- 
ther proof for our worthy ad- 
ministrator. While unattended 
in the infirmary for some two 
hours, I had to defend my 
person from vicious crickets, 



mosquitoes, and the like; 
watch roaches crawl undis- 
turbedly under the front door; 
and get up out of bed and 
put a fire out in the kitchen. 
While playing fireman, I sus- 
tained further injuries which 
were then treated by nursie 
after she had finished her 
phone call. 

Perhaps I am unduly un- 
realistic to hope that the fin- 
est academic school in the 
state will change its policy 
from a "c annot, will not 
remedy" to one of "we try" 
so that such a sad - indeed 
tragic— situation which exists 
on this campus today will be 
no more. Please print initials 
only to protect those who 
have suffered enough already.

Disillusioned Coed 
Issues Plea For 
Stolen Bicycle 

Dear Editor, 

It appears that naivete and 
trust in one's fellow man reap 
a reward unnecessarily 
harsh. 

Being a trusting soul, I am 
by nature unsuspicious and 
easily crushed. 

An overnight bag and a coat 
slipped away this weekend— 
I am now bereft of a night- 
gown, various personal pos- 
sessions and my toothbrush. 

Now, that's a serious blow 
for a young girl — but I stood 
it. I returned to Millsaps dis- 
appointed in and wary of oth- 
er college campuses, and I

MATTERS 

MARIE SMITH 
Editor 




For those who are some- 
what confused on the matter, 
I would like to point out that 
I am editor of the Purple and 
White, not the Bobashela. The 
Purple and White fc| a weekly 
student newspaper varying 
from four to .twelve pages in 
size; the Bobashela is the col- 
lege yearbook. 

However, I will pass on 
what information I have 
about the Bobashelas; they 
are expected to arrive any 
day now. On-campus students 
will be notified immediately; 
graduates and transfers will 
receive their annuals through 
the mail. 

Commend Betsy Stone 
On behalf of the Purple and 
White, I commend Betsy 
Stone for the terrific job she 
has done as editor of the Bob- 
ashela, especially in the face 
of so many odds. Anyone a 
mite less dedicated than Bet- 
sy would have thrown up his 
hands in resignation. 
In fact, that's exactly what 



M-Club Sponsoring 
Homecoming 
Dance 

A Homecoming Dance, 
sponsored by the M-C 1 u b 
will be held Saturday, Oct. 
15, in the downstairs Stu- 
dent Union. 

Tickets for the dance, 
which will last from 8:30

from M-Club members and 
cheerleaders. The Home-

will be presented at inter-

decided to comfort myself by 
a short spin on my bicycle. 
It was gone! 

Now one can become re- 
solved to the v lack of a coat, 
toothbrush, and shoes, but 
what healthy girl can survive 
in society without her deodo- 
rant and her bicycle! 

My fervent plea to whom it 
may concern is "Please re- 
turn my old blue bicycle" or 
I might just shrivel up and 
die. 

Tearfully, 
Sheila Bland 



happened at the University of 
New Mexico. Tom Ormsby, 
when interrogated by the Stu- 
dent Senate about the horri- 
bly sloppy job he did as edi- 
tor of the Mirage, replied, "It 
was neglect on my part for 
goofing off and then throwing 
my hands up into the air. 
With the help of Pete Ken- 
dall and Chuck Lanier I final- 
ly buckled down instead of 
throwing the whole thing in 
the trash. Going into May, we 
and the Pub Board were real- 
ly sweating it, we just wanted 
to get the thing out." 

The article in the New Mex- 
ico Lobo, student newspaper, 
explained that many of the 
pictures were lost and mis- 
named and the pages were 
all out of balance. Ormsby 
explained (not get this!) that 
most pages were filled with 
their full allotment of pictures 
and that remaining pages 
were filled with remaining 
pictures. 

Well anyway, our annual 
may be late, but at least it's 
one that we can be proud of 
for a long, long, long time. 

Senate Dialogue 
Speaking of Student Senate, 
here's a bit of dialogue from 
Tuesday night's session: 

Senator Paul Newsom: "I 
would just like to remind ev- 
eryone that I have $1.00 stu- 
dent tickets to the giant Gold- 
water rally Thursday night." 

Senator Freddy Davis: (in-

have a pep rally that night." 



This weekend the Millsaps 
Majors are going to can a 
bunch of Kangaroos from Aus- 
tin College. However, the huge 
sign which the cheerleaders 
have flashing across the front 
of the Student Union left 
doubt in some minds as to 
just exactly what it was the 
Majors and the Kangaroos 
were planning to do. Inter- 
pretations ranged from 
4 'Come Back Majors" to "Can 
the Kangaroos Come Back?!" 

Actually the sign read, "Go 
Majors! Can the Kangaroos. 
Come Back (the) Majors." 
Anyway, it's a good ides. The 
game is scheduled for 2 p.m. 
Saturday on A 1 u m n i Field.

New Student Union Board Planning 
Busy Fall Schedule Of Activities 

By MARY JANE MARSHALL 



Providing various activities for students and faculty 
members is the main objective of the newly organized Stu- 
dent Union Board. It has as its responsibility maintaining 
recreational facilities downstairs in the Student Union. 

During coming years, the SUB hopes to expand its pro- 
gram, according to Paul Newsom, chairman. This expan- 
sion depends greatly upon student and faculty participation 



SUB plans for this semester include a series of movies 
which began Sept. 30 with "Breakfast at Tiffany's." 

Such activities as Freshmen Week, with a Smorgas- 
board and Freshmen Talent Show, and Freshmen Day Ac- 
tivities, will precede the official opening of the Union rec- 
reational facilities on tjctober 8. 

A ping-pong tournament, a play, a pool tournament, 
bridge tournament, and basketball tournaments are also on 
the schedule.

Symposium; Student Senate Exhibits Top Notch Leadership 




By the time this column 
is in print, the Millsaps 
Student Senate will have 
met for the first time this 
year. In this writer's opin- 
ion, the student body has 
never sent so many out- 
standing leaders to repre- 
sent them in a Millsaps 
body. 

At the helm of the SEB is 
Jerry Duck, President of the 
Student body and one of the 
most illustrious SEB heads 
that this school has had in 
a long time. He has already 
instituted many innovations to 
student government which 
will, no doubt, aid in increas- 
ing the effectiveness of the 
entire student government. 

Mark Matheney, Vice-Pres- 
ident and chairman of the 
Elections Committee, finds 
few peers in leadership abili- 
ty and organizational efficien- 
cy. 

Polly Dement and Leslie 
Jean Floyd have proven their 
governmental prowess many 
times over in previous offi- 
ces that they have held. 
Davis and Waide 

If there is anyone on this 
campus who approaches the 
ability of Jerry Duck, it is 
Freddie Davis, President of 
the Senior class. Jim Waide, 
the underdog who didn't stand 
a chance to be elected but 
was elected president of the 
Junior Class, anyway, is cer-

"What's New" is the pro- 
vocative name of a female 
who lives in the Lambda Chi 
House. 

She just happens to be a 
black and white cat. 

The most talked about fe- 
male at the Lambda Chi 
house wandered into the 
house in summer a year ago, 
at the time the movie 
"What's New, Pussycat?" 
was playing. She was named 
after the movie and also after 
her human prototype, Pussy 
Galore of James Bond fame. 
Geoff Started It 

At first, Geoff Lammons 
fed the cat, so she stayed on. 
What's New gradually ac- 
quired a few enemies, main- 
ly Maurice Hall, Ohuck Hall- 
ford, Jim Carroll, and Gra- 
ham Lewis. "She helps her- 
self to my food whenever she 
wants and keeps the house in 
terrible shape," complains 
Maurice. "However," he adds 
with a smile, "we get our re- 



tain to make an outstanding 
record in Senate activities. 
The President of the Sopho- 
more Class, Ronnie Greer 
could develop into one of the 
most outstanding student 
leaders in Millsaps history. 

And Mike Coker needs only 
to live up to his record at 
Murrah High in order to be- 
come a boon to Millsaps stu- 
dent government, his being a 
freshman notwithstanding. 
Sena tors-At- Large 

Generally speaking, the 
newly - elected senators-at- 
large are a better-than-aver- 
age group. Irene Cajoles 
served the Senate quite ade- 
quately last year, and her ex- 
perience there will undoubted- 
ly be a help to President 
Duck and the SEB. 

Sam Rush forever does a 
tremendous job in any 
task he undertakes, and we 
anticipate no exceptions this 
year. 

Kelsie Van Every, whose 
amiability and concern to- 
ward o t h e r s is well-known, 
will, we hope, use these quali- 
ties to keep his constituents 
in close contact with the Sen- 
ate's activities. 

Paul Newsom, while he is 
not an elected senator, has 
been hard at work for months 
in his new capacity as chair- 
man of the Student Union 
Committee. Few, if any Mill- 
saps students are as inter- 
ested in student government 
and general student affairs as 
is this man, who has this 
writers most profound re- 
spect. 

Only A Few 

I have listed only a few of 
those who will be Senators 
this year, and it should be 
said that I have listed only 
those who I know well, either 
by governmental association 
or personal contact. Even so, 
it becomes quite obvious if 
you read this far that an enu- 
meration of the Senate could 



are out of the house. Then the 
cat goes without food." Ricky 
Fortenberry heads the pro- 
cats. 

•Other Damn Cats' 
Maurice reports that in 
July, What's New gave birth 
to two kittens. John Rohrer, 
a cat, discovered them in his 
room. The kittens are known 
simply as "those other damn 
cats." 

House manager Chuck Hall- 
ford threatened several solu- 
tions to the cat problem. Ru- 
mor has it that he has been 
throwing a hatch at them for 
several months, but the cats 
sense that he doesn't like 
them and get out of the way. 
Pledge Project 

One of the possible solutions 
has been proposed by Alex 
Wright, freshman Lambda 
Chi pledge from Baltimore, 
Md. He suggests that he may 
adopt the cats as part of his 
pledge project. 

The Lambda Chi's add that 
they have alternate plans in 
mind, but refuse to disclose 
their strategy. 



quickly get old. Let me say 
that I hope that each student 
will get to know the person 
who is their Senator, as well 
as other Senators, because 
this is the only way that our 
student government is going 
to develop into a more ef- 
fective and useful body. 
No Separate Entity 

The Senate cannot function 
as a separate entity. It must 
be in constant contact with 
the student body at large and 
must be responsive to its will. 

Obviously, it is impossible 
for each Senator to walk up 
to every student and ask him 
how he feels about a certain 
issue or what he wants the 
Senate to do. It is as much 
the duty of the student body 
to be in contact with mem- 
bers of the Senate as it is 
for them to be in contact with 
us. If you have a gripe, or if 
you want a change in some- 
thing on the campus, by all 
means tell the members 
of the Senate about it. This 
is one of the main reasons 
that there is a senate at all. 
They want us to convey to 
them our ideas and sugges- 
tions. 

A Real Voice 

As for those who feel that 
the Senate "doesn't do any- 
thing" or is only a sounding 
board for the administration, 
you are absolutely wrong. I 
think that it can be safely

As millions of students re- 
turn to classes, school and 
college physicians and nurses 
soon will be faced with long 
lines of young men and wom- 
en complaining of feeling 
tired and listless and having 
other diff icult4o-pin-down 
symptoms. 

Some students will be 
suffering from laziness, but 
others will have a legitimate 
reason for their aches — in- 
fectious mononucleosis. The 
Virginia Tech of Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute in Blacks- 
bueg, Va., reports on a new 
test which can diagnose mono 
in two minutes. 

Before, mono presented a 
serious problem because of 
its ability to mimic other ail- 
ments including appendicitis, 
hepatitis and as many as 27 
other maladies. 

'Mono-Test' 

Pharmaceutical research 
has developed a "Mono-Test" 
— a simple, inexpensive diag- 
nostic test which quickly, and 
happily for the patient, re- 
veals the presence of mono— 
thus sparing the patient many 
agonizing tests and a delay in 
treatment. 

Any medical technician can 
perform the test using only a 
glass slide, a blood sample 
from the patient, and the con- 
trol samples in the kit. 

The test kit is distributed 



said that every single change 
that the administration has 
made which has reflected stu- 
dent desires has come to it in 
one form or another through 
the Senate. The Senate is our 
main contact with the admin- 
istration; if we neglect the 
Senate, the administration 
cannot help but respond to 
us; indeed, they want to know 
the students' feelings on mat- 
ters concerning the college 
and will be most sensitive to 
our will as expressed through 
the Senate— if we will but ex- 
press it. 

'Up To Us' 

So it is up to us. This writer 
will be at Senate meetings 
taking down notes on what 
goes on and will report from 
time in this column on the 
Senate's programs and ac- 
complishments. But in the

Comic Books Popular 

Comic books? Who reads 
them? According to The Red 
and Black of the University 
of Georgia, comic books are 
becoming so popular with 
college students that over 50,- 
000 of them now pay a dollar 
each to belong to a comic 
book "society" with chapters 
on more than a hundred cam- 
puses. In an article in Esquire 
Magazine, William Sherman, 
an English teacher at the 
State University of Buffalo, 
New York, explains that he 
uses certain comic books in 
his course on contemporary 
American literature. 

Stan Lee 

Stan Lee, who created for 
Marvel Comics many of the 
heroes currently popular with 
college students, has lectured 
at New York University, Bard 
College, Columbia University, 
and Princeton University. At 
Bard he drew a larger audi- 
ence than ex-President Eisen- 
however and at Princeton he 
spoke in a guest series that 
included Vice President 
Hubert Humphrey, Governor 
William Scranton, and Sena- 
tor Wayne Morse. What else 
can I say?! 



long run it is going to all 
boil down to what kind of a 
student government YOU 
want for Millsaps. If you want 
a "mickey mouse" student 
government, then simply let 
these outstanding leaders, 
which you. have elected, try to 
do it all by themselves. 

But if you want the most 
efficient, most productive, 
and over-all best student gov- 
ernment Millsaps has ever 
had, then participate in it 
and be a part of it. 

You'll be surprised how 
much the Millsaps Student 
Senate does.

Sociology Listening 
Lab Introduced Here 



Oct. 6, 1966 



PURPLE & 



By JOHN SCHUTT 

A new concept of study in 
the sociology department was 
instituted at Millsaps this 
year. 

It is the listening lab, in 
which sociology or anthropol- 
ogy students can listen to 
actual accounts of events 
which he is studying in the 
classroom. 

Dr. Bryant, head of the 
Sociology Department, said 
that 100 hours of tape were 
available to the student. He 
also said that the Title Six 
grant to the college for the 
purchase of equipment has 
enabled the school to add 
some very modem equipment 
which should arrive next 
week. 

The lab will be on a more 
casual basis than the lan- 
guage labs. The equipment 
will be set up in a lounge so 
that small groups will be able 
to listen to and discuss a 
tape. 

It is the first step in a long- 
range plan which includes 
field work by Bryant and 
Peltz, along with students, 
generating tapers. Bryant ex- 

Freshman Day 
Activities Set 

Baby bottle chug-a-lugs for 
the men and football throws 
for the women are only two of 
the exciting events on the 
a g e n d a for Freshman Day, 
according to Ronnie Greer, 
sophomore class president. 

The events will start at 10 
p.m. this Saturday on Alumni 
Field and last through 11:30 
followed by a smorgasbord in 
the cafeteria. 

For the football game, 
which begins at 2 p.m., fresh- 
man men will be elaborately 
arrayed in PJ's; the women 
in little girl outfits. 

The sophomore class offi- 
cers have planned an 
award presentation at half- 
time. Winners of the morn- 
ings competition will be an- 
nounced, along with winners 
of the banner contest, and the 
boy and girl with the wildest 
pair of PJ's or most original 
outfit. 

Freshmen will conclude the 
ceremonies by singing an 
original freshman fight song. 

Working with Ronnie on 
Freshman Day activities are 
the other sophomore class of- 
ficers, David Martin and Di- 
anne McLemore, vice presi- 
dent and secretary, respec- 
tively.

pressed hope that video tape 
equipment can be purchased 
within the next few years. 
There is also hope for a sum- 
mer archeological dig for stu- 
dents. 

Exciting Concept 

Mr. Bryant said, "It is an 
exciting new concept. This is 
1966 and it's time for teach- 
ing to be rejuvenated." 

Mr. Peltz said, "It is de- 
signed to be a real aid to stu- 
dents. I think we have come 
up with something that may 



be a model for other depart- 
ments in the use of electronic 
equipment.' ' 

He also said, "This is the 
age of the anthropologist," to 
which Mr. Bryant added, 
"This is the age of the an- 
thropologist and the so- 
ciologist." 

Whatever the age is, stu- 
dents at "the Saps" have an 
opportunity to benefit greatly 
from the listening lab, and 
should make an effort to use 
it to their advantage.

bring this home quicker than 
anything else around campus 
(that, of course, excludes 
rinky-dinks, beer busts and 
serenades.) 

An especially startling 
example of this was an 
urgent plea recently seen 
posted on the bulletin board: 
"Sex partner needed for local 
erotic play. (Name withheld.) 
69 Alexander St." 

This was a rather racy 
parody on the notice above it: 

"Bridge partner needed 

for local duplicate bridge. 

David Clark, New 

Dorm." 

But if you're not interested 
in how to and don't play 
bridge, you can always settle 



for communicating hygenical- 
ly. There is a book out on the 
subject and a used one is 
offered for just $6. 

Proves this too mild nature 
to you, then Karate should be 
on your schedule. Especially 
if you are one of those sen- 
iors who has not yet been 
able to face P. £. — an hours 
credit goes along with the 
fringe benefits. 

Fringe benefits in the case 
include being able to render 
helpless anyone who pours 
beer down your face. (For 
those popular girls who can 
not seem to handle their 
ardent suitors, the class will 
be open to girls second se- 
mester.; However, if you 
don't have this problem, it 
will enable you to capture 
your own. 

Hospital visits are so 
romantic.

Neely, Weller 
Rank In NCAA 



Danny Neely and Ted 
Wller have brought a national 
focus on the Millsaps football 
team with exceptionally high 
rankings in the latest NCAA 
individual college - division 
statistics. 

Quarterback Neely, a senior 
from Pearl - McLaurin High 
School who played two years 
at Hinds Junior College, ranks 
11th nationally in passing sta- 
tistics. Neely was an all-state 
signal caller at Hinds before 
joining the Majors last year. 

Neely has completed 30 
aerials in 50 attempts for 403 
yards in his two outings, and 
these who rate above him in 
the stats have played in three 
games, while Neely's fieures 
a**e based on only two games. 
Neely has completed 60 per 
cent of his tosses. 

Neely was also near the top 
of the list in total offense with 
426 yards rushing and pass- 
ing combined for a 14th place 
in the nation out of hundreds 
reporting. 

Favorite Target 

Tell Weller is Neely's favor- 
ite target. Weller has caught 
four Neely passes for touch- 
downs for a tie for ninth spot 
in that department. Weller is 



a senior letterman from 
Chatham, Miss. 

The Majors' offensive team 
statistics are also quite im- 
pressive, showing a team to- 
tal offense of 717 yards in two 
games for a 358.5 yard per 
game average. Passing has 
accounted for 201.5 yards per 
cent per contest, while rush- 
ing has netted 157 yards per 
game. 

Halfback Jenkins 

Halfback Troy Lee Jenkins 
lead the Majors in both rush- 
ing and pass receiving yards, 
carrying 26 times for 138 
yards on the ground and 
catching eight passes for 78 
yards by air. 

Weller has snared eight 
passes for 127 yards and Ed- 
win Massey has grabbed nine 
receptions for 99 yards. 

Fullback Gerold Robbins 
has been averaging a so-so 
34.8 yards with his punts, but 
has only had to boot the ball 
five times in two contests, 
thanks to a very productive 
Millsaps offense.

tionally, Austin College has 
been a passing team. 

Mike Maloney, a big, strong 
fullback, and quarterback 
Freddie Maples are described 
as the backs to watch for 
against Austin. 

After taking Monday and 
Tuesday off last week, the 
Majors came back for 
lengthly drills Wednesday 
through Saturday. 

Coach Harper Davis sent 
his legions through kicking 
exercises, pass protection 
drills, and blocking manuvers. 

The Majors had a minor 
scrimmage Monday and some 
light contact work Tuesday 
of this week, but then they 
slacked off for the upcoming 
contest. 



Tuesday, the Millsaps foot- 
ballers worked on goal line 
defense and a <4 30-second of- 
fensive drill" which involves 
running as many offensive 
plays within a 30-second time 
limit as possible inside the 
10-yard line. 

Although the Majors have 
had phenomenal success in 
the passing offense category* 
David reports that his team 
ran more against the Uni- 
versity of the South at Se- 
wanee. The Majors were 40- 
28 victors on that trip. 
Pass Combination 

The passing combination of 
Danny Neely and Ted Weller 
has astounded the opposition, 
although Davis says that he 
will mix up his running and 
passing to suit the particular 
situation. 



Neely ranked 11th national- 
ly in the latest NCAA col- 
lege - division passers, with 
only two games under his 
belt, as compared to many of 
his competitors who have 
three or more games behind 
them. 

Weller has a tie for ninth 
place in the NCAA stats in 
the receiving department, 
having latched on to four Nee- 
ly passes for TDs. 

Neely's 426 total yards of- 
fense, which ranks 14th na- 
tionally, shows the potence of 
the Major offense this 



Offensively, Davis will start 
Leon Bailey and Weller at the 
ends, Bill Milton and John 
Hart at tackles, Jimmy 
Waide and George Self at 
guards, Ben Graves at cen- 
ter, Neely at quarterback, 
Timmy M i 1 1 i s at fullback, 
Troy Lee Jenkins and Edwin 
Massey at the halfback slots. 

Defensively, the Majors will 
have Waide and William 
Campbell at ends, Milton and 
John Turcotte at tackles, 
Stanley Graham at mid- 
dle guard, Gerald Robbins at 
monster (cornerback), Pat 
Amos and David Martin at 
linebackers, Massey and Jer- 
ry Huskey at the halfbacks, 
Mike Coker at safety. 



SPECTATOR 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 



Oct. «, 19€C 



Perhaps the three toughest 
football teams on the 1966 
Millsaps football schedule ap- 
pear at the beginning of the 
schedule. The Majors have 
played two of those games, 
winning one victory, a 40-28 
triumph over the powerful 
University of the South at Se- 
wanee. 

But when the Majors host 
Austin College Saturday aft- 
ernoon, the true power of the 
Millsaps football team will 
be put to its roughest test yet. 

Danny Neely and Ted Wel- 
ler, who both rank high na- 
tionally in the NCAA college- 
division statistics, which in- 
cludes the top colleges in the 
nation, will lead the Millsaps 
offensive attack against Aus- 
tin. 

Improvement 

The Majors showed remark- 
able improvement in the 
game against Sewanee over 
the performance against the 
season's initial opponent, Liv- 
ingston State, although the 
Millsaps boys didn't look bad 
in that 21-14 loss. 

It will be the first home 
game for the Majors this 
year and this year coach Har- 
per Davis, and assistant Tom- 
my Ranager, have come up 
with an exciting combination 
that should generate some 
spectator interest and give 
cause for an uplifting of Mill- 
saps spirit. 

Last year, when the Majors 
made the long trip to Sher- 
man, Texas to play Austin, 
they came home on the short 
end of a 32-0 score. They 
made 15 first downs, while 
we managed to earn only five. 

In the rushing phase of the 
game, we didn't fair so bad- 
ly, though. The Majors pound- 
ed the Austin line for 124 
yards on the ground while 
they picked up 154. 

Austin Passing 

But in the passing depart- 
ment, the difference in the 
score can. be clearly seen. 
Austin noted 271 yards 
through aerials and the Ma- 
jors were stopped with a cold 
"zero" yards in the air. 

The Majors intercepted two 
Austin passes; they intercept- 
ed one of our few tosses. We 
fumbled once but did not lose 
possession, while Austin bob- 
bled the ball three times and 
lost it once. 

But that was the first game 
of the year last season and 
Davis was starting his re- 
building program which has 
proved itself this year in look- 
ing-good-in-losing one game 



and winning the other decis- 
ively on a valiant comeback 
effort. 

Austin again has the expe- 
rience advantage this year, 
having played three games 
and winning all three, scor- 
ing no less than three touch- 
downs in each of the wins. 

The Majors have shown that 
they can score this year. Ther 
is no question that the Mill- 
saps offense is something to 
behold. 

Major Defense? 

BUT the big question will 
be: Can the Major defense 
prevent an agressive Austin 
passing attack from scoring? 

This columnist cannot bring 
himself to go out on a limb 
and predict a Millsaps vic- 
tory, however, that could 
very well happen. It will be 
case of a team which has 
been good for a long time 
(Austin) going against a team 
which is going through a rap- 
id improvement. 

Playing here in Jackson 
will be a boost, if the stu- 
dent body is interesting 
enough to go out and see just 
how good the Majors have be- 
come. 

Other Top Tilts 

In other top state games, 
Ole Miss will venture to Ath- 
ens Georgia to take on the 
Peach State Bulldogs. Johnny 
Vaught has given Bruce New- 
ell the green light in the quar- 
terback slot and that senior 
will try to bring the Rebel 
offense into a little better 
light. Chances are, the Rebs 
will fly back to Mississippi 
with another Southeastern 
victory recorded. 

Mississippi State and the 
University of Southern Missis- 
sippi will tangle in the Ma- 
roons' homecoming affair Sat- 
urday. With the Southern de- 
fense as tough as it is, it 
shouldn't surprise anyone if 
the Bulldogs don't receive an- 
other loss. 

The Bulldogs were 20-0 vic- 
tors over puny Richmond 
last week and Southern played 
excellently against Memphis 
State before bowing, 6-0. 

Jackson State will be look- 
ing for win No. 3 against Ala- 
bama State at Montgomery 
Saturday night. The Tigers 
have won two games and tied 
one so far. 

Delta State has been hav- 
ing its ups - and - downs this 
year and will have another 
acid test coming Saturday 
night against tough Troy State 
in Ozark, Ala.

Choice: Slobs or People Of God 



MSMers Urged To Make Commitment 



By SUE BARNES 

Bob Kochtitzky, director of 
Laymen's Overseas Service, 
an ecumenical mission proj- 
ect ,spoke at the MSM Oct. 3. 

He introduced his talk by 
saying that the questions life 
raises for us are more signifi- 
cant than the questions we 
raise about life. Kochtitzky 
then confronted the students 
with the unrest in South 
Africa, China, Grenada, Mis- 
sissippi, etc. 'These troubled 



areas raise questions for us," 
he said. 

Slobs or God's People 
The group was given a 
choice: to be among the slobs 
or to be the people of God. 
A slob, he explained, is one 
who oozes through life, un- 
commited and diredtionless, 
dying a slow suicide. The peo- 
ple of God change history. A 
quote from Joe Mathews, 
dean of Chicago's Ecumeni- 
cal Institute, describes them

as those who "throw their 
bodies over the barbed wire 
for the sake of all humanity, 
who move out into the 
twilight zone and into the 
beachheads." 

Spirit Movement 
Kochtitzky added that this 
elite cadre who decide to rev- 
olutionize history operates in 
between the "no longer" and 
the "not yet". As a part of 
this new Spirit Movement one 
must be visionary, imagina- 
tive. "But doing the neces- 
sary deeds now he can bring 
into being the New Church, 
the New Man, and the New 
World. This may smack of ar- 
rogance, but men in Christ 
have always been confident." 



Quoting from Hal Luccock's 
Dirge for a Performing Lion, 

a satirical work, Kochtitzky 
likened the Church to a lion 
who sits on a power keg 
which is about to explode, and 
drinks tea. In the Church we 
have become "navel watch- 
ers"; bogged down in com- 
mittee activities, we have 
turned in on ourselves and 
are like bored people who 
stare at their bellies. 
Social Pioneer 

The image of the social pio- 
neer is adequate for the New 
Church. 

As visionaries, people must 
communicate their models to 
the masses. To love one's 
neighbor in our era is to be

Five Girls 
Elected To

Homecoming activities will

The five members of the

Polly Dement and Jean 
Nicholson, senior members of 
the court, have quite a bit in

popular belief that roommates 
are usually enemies, Polly

Senators Evaluating Plans 
For Student Fund Campaign 



Oct. 15. 1966 



Suggested plans for an com- 
prehensive student fund-rais- 
ing campaign were presented 
at Student Senate Tuesday 
night 

The student campaign is in 
connection with the drive be- 
ing launched by the college to 



raise $3,750,000 to match the 
Ford Foundation's cl 
grant of $1,500,000. 



M-Club 
Sponsoring 
Homecoming 
Drive 

A Homecoming Dance, 
sponsored by the M-Club, 
will be held TONIGHT in 
the downstairs Student Un- 
ion. 

Tickets for the d a n c e, 
which will last from 8-12 
p. m., are $1.00 per person. 

Tickets are available 
from M-Club members and 
cheerleaders. 

Music will be provided 
by "The Webbs". 

The Homecoming Queen 
and Court will be 
at intermission. 



Student body president, 
Jerry Duck, announced that 
the current goal in the stu- 
dent campaign is to raise be- 
tween 28 and 30 thousand dol- 
lars over a 30-month period. 

He said this goal could be 
easily reached if each student 
would pledge at least one dol- 
lar per month for 30 months. 

However, student pledges 
are to be only one phase 
of the campaign, according to 
the president. 

Organisational Charts 

Senators were given tenta- 
tive organizational charts for 
their evaluation. The entire 
campaign would be headed by 
a Student General Chairman 
to be selected by the Student 
Executive Board and presi- 
dent's cabinet. 

The General Chairman and 
four area chairmen, along 
with the four class chairmen, 
would compose the steering 
committee. The respective 



area chairmen would handle 
special gifts, publicity and ar- 
rangements, secretarial and 
attendance matters, and 
canvasses. 

Class Setup 
The suggested organization- 
al setup for the classes calls 
for a chairman for each 
class, three division leaders, 
a number of captains under 
each division leader, and 
team members under each 
captain. All of these persons 
would be responsible to the 
class chairman. 

Some suggested features 
aimed at stimulating interest 
are: 

1) Group citations to or- 
ganizations or classes for out- 
standing participation; 

2) An award to the organ- 
ization that exceeds its goal 
by the highest percentage; 

3) A bronze tablet engraved 
with the name of every stu-

State Fair 



The Frauds Are In Fun But . . . 



By GEARY ALFORD 
Asst. Editor 

Once again for a few days the smell 
of cotton seed oil in the atmosphere has 
been replaced by that of peanuts, pop- 
corn, and cotton candy. 

The State Fair is back in town^ or 
more precisely back in the state. It was 
in Arkansas last week; it will be in Lou- 
isiana next week. 

But for now it is in Jackson. 

And with it are the smells and sights 
of carnival life, the gimmicks, games of 
chance, the side shows, whose barkers 
loudly assure us, "Freaks are born, not 
made"! 

What is it that attracts people to pay 
money in order to gawk at the mangled, 



twisted flesh of other human beings? 

There are other "attractions" The 
Mummified Creatures, The Lido Club, 
and The Motor Dome, which was really 
one of the better shows this year. 

Indeed, there are thrilling rides (some 
good ones to ride on with dates), trick 
houses, and many fine exhibits. 

All of this makes it worthwhile to pay 
fifty cents or more for a parking place 
and still walk through the mud, etc., 
to get in. 

But there always remains the fact that 
every year the public is cheated and de- 
frauded by the gimmick, all in good fun, 
to be sure. 

So no one seems to mind. 

But I can't help feeling the whole event 
would be a lot better off without them. 



The Stage Band Needs YOU! 



"Come on, crowd. Give me an "M"! 
Yell for the Majors! Where's your spir- 
it?" 

Well, the cheerleaders don't have 
much problem generating spirit this 
year. The campus is overflowing with it. 

And there's one particular group on 
campus who have done more than meets 
the eye to help boost team spirit. 

The group? The Millsaps Stage Band. 

Remember the games before this 
group's creation when you'd try to throw 
a cheer from the stands to the field — 
only to have it fall flat at your feet? 



Then the stage band was organized 
and it was great to watch the spirit soar 
as they play their jazz rendition of 
"Help!" and other selections. 

Incidentally, "Help!" is exactly the 
plea that band members are issuing at 
the present time. 

Bob Kemp, director, said he would 
like very much to put to use some of the 
musical talent on campus which is now 
being hidden under books and barrels. 

Come on out all you clarinet, oboe, bas- 
soon and reed instrument players. The 
Stage Band needs you and Millsaps 
needs the stage band. 



LETTERS AND CARTOONS TO THE EDITOR 



Students Want 
More Popular 
Entertainers 

Dear Madame Editor: 

It has come to our atten- 
tion that the student senate 
wishes to bring attractions on 
campus to entertain the stu- 
dent body. We also observe 
that the Martin St. James 
show was, in our estimation, 
somewhat of a bomb. 
Therefore, we would like to 



suggest some other type of en- 
tertainment for this institu- 
tion. 

For instance, a concert fea- 
turing such performances as 
Simon and Garfunkel, the Let- 
termen, the New Christy Min- 
strels, or other groups along 
this line. 

Groups of this kind would 
bring area focus to the Mill- 
uaps campus along with fi 
nancial success. We under- 
stand that groups of this cali- 
ber do require a bit more ex- 



pense, however, we feel that 
they would be an overwhelm- 
ing success and financial 
boon. 

We feel sure that any one 
of these groups would fill the 
Christian Center to overflow 
capacity. This campus needs 
to be brought to life and we 
feel that such groups could 
do just that, a task Mr. James 
could not capably fulfill. 

In closing let us issue this 
plea: if you feel the same as 
w eod, let it be known. Write

MATTERS 




MARIE SMITH 
Editor 





Millsaps is an island they used to say — a haven 
for individualists. 

Dissent and critical evaluation were not tolerated; 
they were expected. It was all a part of being honest 
to oneself. Intellectual honesty — a distinguishing 
quality which Millsaps possessed. 
But strange voices are project Millsaps into history 



blowing across our island 
now. They're saying things 
like, "Marie, be careful what 
you put in the paper this 
week. The alumni will be here 
and we need to impress them. 
They're one of our main sour- 
ces of income, you know." 

And others are peddling 
trite platitudes about 4 Prod- 
ding Millsaps hallowed halls" 
and other nebulous activities. 



All of this seems so foreign 
to the Millsaps I know and 
have come to love. What's 
more alarming — these are stu- 
dent voices. 

Where's that old spirit of in- 
dividualism? Intellectual hon- 
esty? 

Gradually dying out? Fad- 
ing away? Crushed out? Fun- 
ny how you don't appreciate 
something *til you don't have 
it anymore. 

Yes, the spirit and enthusi- 
asm which the Ford Founda- 
tion grant and the president's 
program have . generated are 
exciting— exilerating ! 

But there's something miss- 
ing. 

Is it possible that we may 
become so obsessed with the 
idea of raising three and 
three-fourths million dollars 
that any criticism of the col- 
lege will be looked upon as 
bordering on heresy? 
Common Chorus? 

Will our rallying together at 
this crucial time in order to 

your letter to the editor of 
the Purple & White or see 
your student senator. Stand 
up and be represented. 
Yours truly, 
David Davidson 
William H. Young 




mean that everyone is expect- 
ed to hum a common chorus? 

What would this mean for 
Millsaps— if we lose sight of 
our ultimate values; if our de- 
votion to the college is allowed 
to degenerate to a blind, un- 
questioning, ticky-tacky type 
of drippy sentimentality. 

A shell of an institution- 
no different from any other 
institution? How can we influ- 
ence the course of the state 
and nation if in the process of 
our expansion and improve- 
ment the very basis of of our 
strength dies of malnutrition 

Is any end worth such a 
price? 

Can Spirits Coexist? 

Is it not possible for "School 
spirit" and the spirit of indi- 
viduality and dissent to coex- 
ist? The spirit which says, 
"Wait a minute. Stop the 
band. Woa team. Whare are 
we going? What does it all 
mean— This thing we call life? 
What does it mean to be a 
human being even?" Are 
these questions too weird and 
far-fetched now? Is Millsaps 
going to become a "ticky- 
tacky box" like any other col- 
lege in the state? 

And am I really expected to 
turn my paper into a syrupy, 
sentimental farce in order to 
induce our graduates to sup- 
port their alma mater? That 
would be a cheap trick. 
'Collegiate Nationalism' 

Another alarming element 
is threatening our island- 
let's call it "collegiate nation- 
alism" for lack of a better 
term. 

Pride and confidence is one 
thing but this "I'm - better- 
than - you - because - I - go- 
to - Millsaps - and - Millsaps- 
has - received - a - Ford- 
Foundation - grant - attitude 
is fast alienating people who 
might otherwise prove to be 
valuable friends of the col- 
lege. People don't like to have 
superiority constantly 
flaunted in their faces.

Open Forum: Dr. Zhivago 



Reviewers Express Opposing Ideas 



'Disappointingly 
Weak Character' 

By SUE BARNES 

Boris Pasternak's novel Dr. 
Zhivago and movie by the 
same title have won wide ac- 
claim. The fact that "Zhiva- 
go" has been featured at the 
Capri in Jackson for many 
nights is evidence of its popu- 
larity. 

One is easily caught up in 
the beauty, the despair, and 
the evolution of the characters 
portrayed. It is easy to iden- 
tify with certain roles to an 
extent of great emotional in- 
volvement; in fact, this writ- 
er at times wept at the poig- 
nancy, and at times was out- 
raged at the scenes of injus- 
tice. 

Upheavel And Change 

Against the background of 
the Russian Revolution, young 
Zhivago struggles as a medi- 
cal doctor and poet in times 
of upheaval and social 
change. Initially one sees in 
this man strength and gentle- 
ness, compassion and good- 
ness. A viewer may come in 
search of a catharsis; he may 
even deify or find a model 
hero in Yuri Zhivago, played 
by Omar Sharif. 

He is happily married to 
Tonya Gromeko (Geraldine 
Chaplin), and they have a 
child. For six months he gives 
medical attention to injured 
soldiers during the Revolu- 
tion; this experience he 
shares with nurse Lara Anti- 
pov (Julie Christi), and there 
exists a mutual emotional 
bond between them. 

For all his original noble-

two roles. 

One can certainly under- 
stand that Yuri and Lara 
shared tragedies while attend- 
ing the wounded men. One 
can admit that a wife must 
be more than a companion- 
indeed a lover. Perhaps Ton- 
ya failed him in this capaci- 
ty? Some argue that Yuri had 
two separate and distinct lov- 
ers. 

This can never exist. 
Half Truth More Enticing 

We cannot bear to have our 
sensibilities offended by real- 
izing that a Pulitzer award 
winning movie distorts truth. 
A half-truth is more attrac- 
tive and enticing. 

We place a premium on 
raw, unchanneled creativity 
that does as it pleases. A sim- 
ple truth remains; genuine 
love sets limits; it is disci- 
plined; it is responsible; it 
sacrifices. 

it takes a real seducer of 
minds to arouse college stu- 
dents who don't want to "blow 
their cool," who prefer to 
safely believe "Dr. Zhivago" 
was a "good show". Those of 
us who were dissatisfied with 
the movie may be identified 
as moralists, prophets, or ob- 
jectors. But if another indi- 
vidual begins to think, we 
have not completely missed 
the boat. 

P.S. In regard to Mr. Hall's 
intimation of my term 
"seduction", I meant the 
seduction of "soph i-stica ted"

will 



At the risk of being labeled 
immoral and of offending 
various sensibilities, I should 
like to defend some aspects 
of the seemingly controversial 
movie, Dr. Zhivago. 

Miss Barnes, in her review, 
accuses Boris Pasternak of 
offending the sensibilities by 
distorting the truth. Certain- 
ly, I would not deny the critic 
the privilege of being offend- 
ed, but I can not agree with 
her assertion that Pasternak 
or the producers of the movie 
have distorted the truth 
(whatever THE TRUTH may 
be). 

Truth - Artist's Perception 

I would remind Miss Barnes 
that an artist is obliged only 
to present the truth as he sees 
it and that his perception of 
truth may not always coin- 
cide with the perceptions of 
an audience. Thus, I must de- 
fend the right of both writer 
and producer to create and 
exhibit their work without 
having to conform to anoth- 
er's standard of truth. These 
men do not claim to be su- 
perior moralists or spiritual 
guides of the people. Then, 
too, at no point in the movie 
can I recall any attempt to 
insinuate that the characters 

minds, i.e. to arouse them to 



there portrayed are intended 
as exemplars of truth, virtue 
or piety. Rather, one finds in 
the motives and actions of the 
players a dramatic interpre- 
tation of the effects of a 
tumultuous era upon those 
who experienced the Russian 
Revolution. 

Central Tragic Figure 
Let us consider the impli- 
cations of Miss Barnes' state- 
ment that "Yuri turns into a 
disappointingly weak charac- 
ter." I am amazed that any- 
one could be disappointed be- 
cause of the weakness of the 
central tragic figure. The 
struggles, the passions — yes, 
the very weaknesses of the 
man are the essence of his 
tragedy. If Zhivago had not 
loved both Tonya and Lara, 
there would have been no 
tragedy. Instead, the resulting 
story might have generated 
no greater emotion in the 
audience than pathetic senti- 
mentality. Dr. Zhivago would 
become a vulgar and syrupy 
melodrama. 

Two Separate Loves? 
At this point, I found that 
I must defend my own state- 
ment that Zhivago did love 
both Tonya and Lara. On this 
point turns Miss Barnes' argu- 
ment. Her position is that a 
man can not have two sep- 
arate and distinct loves, and 
she is offended at the very 
suggestion of such a possibil- 
ity. Further, she brands the 
producer of the movie a "se- 
ducer of minds" for making 
the suggestion. I find myself 
offended by Miss Barnes' im- 



Homecoming Court 

(Continued from Page 1) 
was acquired after finding 
herself locked in the library 
one afternoon because she 
"didn't know what that little 
bell meant." 



Carolyn Wallace, sophomore 
member of the court, was 
heard to remark 'That does 
not exist" when she found her 
name listed as a member of 
the Homecoming court. Per- 
haps this expression best ex- 
emplifies her surprise and 
near disbelief at being elect- 
ed to the court. 

Carolyn was president of 
her dorm as a freshman and 
she captured the position of 
president this year in the new 
women's dorm. She is well 
known for her love(?) of giv- 
ing reps. Maybe giving reps 
is just her way of getting 
back at some of the girls who 
claim they thought she was a 
boy trying to break into the 



dorm by way of the fire es- 
cape, last year in Founders; 
she was really trying to pro- 
tect the girls from a group of 
boys who had been seen steal- 
ing hubcaps in the Founder's 
parking lot and who were 
being chased by police. Such 
incidents are just part of a 
dorm president's job, aren't 
they? 

Susan's Pink Net 
From Sumerville, Tennes- 
see, comes Susan Duquette, a 
junior. Music is Susan's ma- 
jor and she is a member of 
the Troubadors and the Con- 
cert Choir. Susan is a Kappa 
Delta active. 

Among her fellow dorm 
mates, Susan is known for her 
pink hair net. Her pink hair 
net is famed to be as wide 
as her bed.

pertinent assertion that a man 
can not love two women. Per- 
haps no man can love two 
women completely and unre- 
servedly at the same time, 
but who is to say that Zhivago 
(or any other man) could not 
fine his love for one woman 
gradually being eclipsed, yet 
not destroyed, by the dedi- 
cated passion of a more de- 
sirable woman? (I assume 
without apology that Julie 
Christie is more desirable 
than Geraldine Chaplin.) Of 
course, the dimensions and 
possibilities of love can be 
argued indefinitely. My point 
is simply that Miss Barnes 
imposes and unfair and inap- 
plicable limitation upon the 
artist by refusing to accept 
his point of view within the 
context of the story. 

Seduce and Arouse 
My final objection to the 
review concerns Miss Barnes* 
assumption that Dr. Zhivago 
is a deliberate attempt to se- 
duce and arouse college stu- 
dents to some degree of im- 
morality. I disagree entirely 
and invite those who have not 
seen the movie to judge for 
themselves its effects on the 
collegiate mentality. I found 
Dr. Zhivago stimulating— both 
emotionally and intellectually. 

None of the statements in 
this article are intended as 
personal reflections upon the 
integrity of my friend. Miss 
Sue Barnes. Our disagree- 
ment is limited to opposing 
conceptions of artistic licence 
and excellence.

Danny Neely flipped three touchdown passes, one 
to Edwin Massey and a pair to Troy Lee Jenkins, 
in leading Millsaps' Majors to a 32-18 defeat of power- 
ful Austin College last week. 
The first Major drive start 



ed late in the first quarter 
and covered a fantastic 9ft- 
yards, and was climaxed on 
the final play of the period 
when Jenkins scooted into the 
end-zone from 23-yards out. 

Contrary to earlier reports, 
Massey snared the original 
Neely scoring pass on a play 
that covered 11-yards. The 
pass was the termination of a 
70-yard Major march. B i g 
gains off the drive were 
picked up on aerials to Mas- 
sey, Leon Bailey, and 
Jenkins. A 15-yard penalty 
helped and Neely picked up 
14 yards on a roll out option. 
John Hamby kicked the ex- 
tra point. 

Austin was backed up to 
their own 27 on a 45-yard 
Gerald Robbins punt and 
from there marched all the 
way to the Millsaps 19 yard 
marker before being stopped 
by a hard charging Major 
front line. 

The Majors took over and 
three plays later successfully 
gambled on a fourth and 
inches situation at their own 
34 to keep the next scoring 
march moving. 

Big Gains 

Big gains by Massey and 
Neely set the Majors up at 
the Austin 40. From there 
Neely connected with end Ted 
Weller for 25 yards and then 
Jenkins pulled his second TD 
pass of the day out of the air. 
The try for the two pointer 
failed and the Majors roosted 
on a 19-0 lead. 

The Kangaroo offense got 
hot late in the third quarter 
and three consecutive passes 
of 11, 36, and 14 yards put the 
Austin bunch on the Major 
three-yard line and two plays 
later, with 2:10 remaining in 
the period, Mike Maloney 
sliced over from the two. 

The next Austin drive re- 
sulted in a touchdown, with 
the help of a pass interfer- 
ence penalty and some nifty 
catches by the Kangaroo re- 
ceivers. Quarterbacks Wesley 
Eben and Fred Maples were 
both accurate during this 
drive, which was terminated 
by a three yard scoring dive 
off tackle by John Bengel. 
On Ice 

Taking over on their 25 
yard line, the Majors put the 
game on ice with Massey, 
fullback Timmy Millis, and 
Jenkins carrying the burden 
on the next Millsaps scoring 
drive. Jenkins snared anoth- 
er Neely aerial from nine 
yards out for the score and 
Hamby's boot gave the 



Majors a comfortable 26-12 
lead with 5:15 left on the 
clock. 

With only 2:40 remaining in 
the game the Majors struck 
again, this time on a four 
yard plunge by strong full- 
back plunge by strong full- 
back Millis. The TD was set 
up by an interception of an 
Austin pass by quick tackle 
Bill Milton, who carried the 
ball agily to the Austin 20. 

Desperate, Austin launched 
its final scoring drive with a 
3&-yard heave from Maples to 
end Ronnie Hagood to start 
things going. The score came 
four plays later, on a fourth 
down situation, with running 
over from the 16. 

Halfback Jenkins accounted 
for 92 of the 176 ground yards 
picked up by the Majors, and 
was good for 64 yards as a 
pass receiver. Neely complet- 
ed an outstanding 13 of 16 
aerials for 155 yards and was 
magnificent with his offen- 
sive performance. 

It marked the second win in 
three outings for the Majors, 
who posted a 2-6 record last 
year. Head coach Harper 
Davis was pleased with the 
showing of his Millsaps crew, 
which posted a 40-28 drubbing 
of Sewanee two weeks ago. 
Southwestern Next

by the Majors last year, will

The Crowd Was On Their Feet 




MAJORS FORMIDABLE 

The Millsaps Majors 
are putting their formid- 
able feet forward this 
year. 

Gone are the days 
when opposing teams 
could count on Millsaps 
to provide them at least 
one victory for the sea- 
son. 

In fact, the Austin 
team, leading with a 
series record of seven 
victories to zero, were 
shaking in their boots. 

They weren't fooled by 
superficial indications 
that (quote) "the Kanga- 
roos need only to show 
up to get a win over 
Millsaps." 

And for good reason. 

The Majors are more 
seasoned this year, since 
most of them are re- 
turnees.

Two wins consecutively, one 
over the University of the

the other, a 31-18 drubbing 
of Austin College, spells bad 
news for the Saturday in-

ably the most powerful foe 
on the schedule. 

But the Majors proved what 
they're made of by exhibiting 
a devistating offensive per- 
formance and an adequate de- 
fense. 

All the offensive backs, 
Danny Neely, Edwin Massey, 
Tim my Millis, and Troy Lee 
Jenkins, did excellent jobs. 
Neely 's 13 completions in 18 
pass attempts was superb. 
Massey came through with 
big gains and well timed re- 
ceptions, Millis caught fire 
late in the game and was the 
backbone of the drive he 
scored on. And Troy Lee 
Jenkins was a giant running, 
receiving, and returning punts 
and kickoffs. 

Interceptions 

Of the linemen, Bill Milton, 
a large tackle, was the most 
outstanding. Milton intercept- 
ed an Austin pass that halted 
what could have turned into 
a Kangaroo scoring drive. 

Defensive safety Mike 
Coker, a freshman from Mur- 
rah, snared an interception 
and Massey picked off anoth- 
er Austin aerial. 

The Majors were victorious 
over Southwestern last year, 
21-12. The Majors marched 
to 19 first downs to 15 for 
Southwester. In yards rush- 
ing, the Majors piled up 249 to 



66 yards for the opponents. 
The passing statistics were 
about the opposite, though. 
Southwestern netted 280 yards 
through the air and the 
Majors got only 57. Both 
teams managed to intercept 
two passes, the Majors fum- 
bled twice but didn't lose 
possession while Southwestern 
bobble the pigskin three times 
and lost it twice. 

Don't get the idea that the 
Majors can just pitch their 
cleats out on the field and 
have Southwestern run off the 
field with fear in their eyes. 

They will be out to avenge 
last season's defeat and 
should have a greater amount 
of experienced players going 
for them this year. 

It will be homecoming for 
the Majors and a win would 
certainly be sweet. 

Spirit Excellent 

The student spirit last was 
excellent. The home stands 
were crammed with eager 
people and various signs 
from the independents and 
the Greek organizations. The 
band was very helpful and 
added color to the game. 

The cheerleaders looked ex- 
hausted after the game, proof 
that they were active all dur- 
ing the game. 

Other Results 

The Baptists allowed their 
opponents to score two TD's 
in the last minute and-a-half 
of the game, resulting in a 
14-7 loss for the Clinton kids. 

Ole Miss really let down 
and let Georgia sneak up and 
grab a 9-3 win. 

Mississippi State was a 
lucky winner over Southern, 
10-9, dad-gummit. 

Those Presbyterians don't 
have a football team so they 
couldn't play ball.

of the greatest campaign Mill- 
saps College has ever 
launched. 

The formal opening of the 
79th Anniversary is also the 
formal opening of the drive to 
match the Ford Foundation 
grant, a gigantic undertaking 
for this institution's adminis- 
tration, faculty, students and 
friends. . . . 

Outstanding Affiliates 

Nevertheless ... we will do 
it, not only because of the 
outstanding alumni, student 
body, and loyal friends which 
are ours. We will do it be- 
cause over the last 75 years 
Millsaps has made a record 
equalled by few in the nation. 
We have established our- 
selves as leaders in the field 
of education. . . . 

Few institutions can boast 
of having only seven presi- 
dents over a span of 75 years. 
Long Service 

Fewer still can boast of 
such long services as many of 
our past and present faculty 
members have rendered. 

Everything considered, . . . 
the greatest feeling of all is to 
be a student at Millsaps Col- 
lege at this juncture in the in- 
stitution's history. 

As a senior, one still thinks 
as an undergraduate. Never- 
theless, he cannot but consid- 
er that this will be his last 
Homecoming as a student; he 
too will soon be a "son of 
Millsaps". 

In a way I envy those stu- 
dents who have yet other 
years to spend here at Mill- 
saps — a Millsaps which will 
be as different four years 
from now as today's Millsaps 
is from ten years ago. You 
are lucky in that sense . . . 
and fortunate enough to wit- 
ness changes which none of us 
are capable of foreseeing. 
To Shape The Course 

And just as those men and 
women who will be returning 
to their alma mater on Satur- 
day, you too will have an op- 
portunity to help shape the 
course of Millsaps. 

I have heard some students 
(a very, very few) say that 
they don't feel that they owe 
Millsaps anything; that all 
Millsaps has given them while 
they have been here is a 
rough time. 

They are wrong, and even 
though they probably know it 
anyway, they could find out 
what Millsaps does for its stu- 
dents just by asking any of 
the alumni who will be visit- 
ing here this Saturday.

Volleyball 
Play Heated 

By DAVID FLEMING 

Last week ended the first 
week of intramural sports 
with the Lambda Chi's taking 
over undisputed possession of 
first place in volleyball with 
twin victories over the KA's 
and the Independents. 

This week four games are 
scheduled for Buie Gym with 
the big game matching the 
KA's and the Sigs on Monday 
at 7:15. The Kappa Alpha's 
play the following night at 
8: 15 against the Pikes. 
Wednesday is double-header 
night as the Pikes meet the 
•Independents in the early 
game at 6:30, while the 
league-leading Lambda's play 
the Sigs at 7:30. 

Although exact times were 
not available at publication 
time, the volleyball pairings 
for the week of October 17 
were announced: 

KA's vs. Independents, and 
the Pikes vs. LXA's will close 
out the first round competi- 
tion. Second round action gets 
under way with the Independ- 
ents and the LXA's and the 
Sigs playing the Pikes. 
Soccer Premier 

In other sporting news, the 
premier of the soccer season 
was set for Tuesday, October 
11 at 4 P.M. with the Sigs and 
Pikes sharing the first day 
honors. 

Wednesday's action sees the 
Independents squaring off 
against the LXA's. Soccer 
competition is limited this 
year to one round as each 
team will play four games. If 
this addition to the Millsaps 
sporting program is met with 
enough support and co-opera- 
tion, more games will proba- 
bly be planned for next sea- 
son. 



Rounding out the intramur- 
al sports program for this se- 
mester are several other im- 
portant functions. The Mont- 
gomery Invitational Basket- 
ball Tournament will open 
around Nov. 14. 

Six teams will compete in 
the double elimination tour- 
nament with the regular sea- 
sons getting started in Febru- 
ary. Two other tourneys are 
on tap this semester under 
the sponsorship of the newly 
formed Student Union Board. 
Oct. 17-20 is set for the Ping 
Pong Tournament followed by 
the Pool Tournament the next 
month running from Nov. 14- 
18.

William Barksdale Receives 
Alumnus Of Year Award 



By MARY JANE MARSHALL 

William E. Barksdale of 
Jackson was named Alumnus 
of the Year Saturday night at 
the 1966 Homecoming ban- 
quet. 

As the outstanding alumnus 
of Millsaps for this year, Mr. 




WILLIAM 



Barksdale was selected on the 
basis of service to communi- 
ty, church, and college. He 
was presented a certificate 
designating him Alumnus of 
the Year for 1966; his name 
will be added to the bronze 
plaque on display in the Stu- 
dent Center. 

Distinguished Career 

Barksdale was cited for his 
distinguished career as a pub- 
lic servant of Mississippi as 
well as for contributions to 
his church and college. He is 
manager of the Industrial Dis- 
tribution Division of the Jack- 
son Chamber of Commerce 
and manager of the Central 
Mississippi Development Dis- 
trict. For nine years he 
served as executive director 
of the Mississippi Agricultur- 
al and Industrial Board. 

Travel and tourist promo- 
tion business rose under his 
direction. "Hospitality 
Month," a community devel- 



year with the selection of 
"Miss Hospitality," was be- 
gun.

News Editor 

"Alongside technological 
advance may develop condi- 
tions leading to human de- 
gradation unknown to more 
unsophisticated eras," warned 
Dr. Myron F. Wicke at the 
75th Anniversary Convocation 
here at Millsaps last Friday. 

Dr. Wicke, general secre- 
tary of the Division of Higher 
Education of The Methodist 
Church's Board of Education, 
told students, faculty, and 
Methodist dignitaries that ev- 
ery technological leap places 
a new demand upon the hu- 
man spirit to manage what 
has been created. 

"Appointment with Tomor- 
row" was the topic of his 
speech. 

Symbols of Today 

The telephone switchboard, 
the highway cloverleaf, and 
the computer-controlled ma- 
chine were modern-day sym- 
bols used by Dr. Wicke, who 
pointed out that they have not 
been able to solve some old 
problems and have even cre- 
ated some new ones. He 
stated that even though 
"means of communication 
improve sensationally, the 
will or even the possibility of 
communicating with one an- 
other on important matters 
seems strangely unavaila- 
ble." 

Though he applauded stu- 
dents who protest the misuse 
of man by his fellow men, 
he also said that the "ulti- 
mate power of the student 
generation will not be meas- 
ured primarily by marches. 



Your power will be shown to- 
morrow by the quiet, day-to- 
day application of intelli- 
gence, imagination, and 
love." 

Dr. Wicke holds the PhD in 
English from Western Re- 
serve University, and is the 
author of several books on 
church-related education. 
Academic Procession 

A formal academic proces- 
sion preceded the address of 
Dr. Wicke. Included in the 
procession were faculty, sen- 
iors, and visiting dignitaries 
of The Methodist Church. 

Benjamin B. Graves, Mill- 
saps president, presided over 
the convocation program. 
The convocation formally 
opened the 75th academic ses- 
sion of Millsaps. The Music 
for the occasion was provided 
by the Millsaps Singers. 



Stylus Taking

Stylus, the Millsaps lit- 
erary magazine, is now ac- 
cepting manuscripts to be 
considered for publication 
in the fall issue. The dead- 
line for submissions is 
Saturday, - Nov. 5. 

All poetry, short stories,

Pot Pourri Of Protests 



By DONNIE BUTLER 

Please forgive me, Marie, my radi- 
ant friend and editor, for clogging your 
paper with this bit of nonsense, and you, 
the reader, for tempting you to waste 
your time reading this. Do not be criti- 
cal, those of you who are possessed of 
sufficient cynicism to write future vit- 
uperative letters to the editor full of 
meaningful condemnation. This would be 
unnecessary and in poor taste. An un- 
friendly glare in the grill will suffice. 
Permit me, you who have the decency 
of patience, to ramble broadly in sub- 
ject matter, to capriciously sway in 
opinion, and to contradict myself as 
mood dictates. 

How good it is to once again be en- 
tranced by the joy of Millsaps. Where 
would I or any of you be without this 
droll and curious campus? Throughout 



the summer I ached with considerable 
nostalgia for all that awaited me here: 
for my patient and understanding pro- 
fessors who humorously ignored my 
alarming number of cuts, having the 
acumen to realize the vast overestima- 
tion of the value of actual time spent in 
class; for the thrill of athletic events 
and the intriguing precision of our cheer- 
leaders; for the culture of language lab, 
a farce in its own right, the tapes in 
which I have never understood or found 
useful; for the serenity of dormitory 
life, lending so well toward intellectual 
pursuits; for the warm and smiling 
faces of friendly, cheerful coeds. 

To all of you who make Millsaps your 
home, who again resisted the temptation 
to transfer, please accept my gratitude 
and recognition of unflinching inner for- 
titude. 



Salinger Fans. Unite! Who Needs College? 



I often wonder, however, why college 
is necessary when such an extensive ed- 
ucation may be had simply by studying 
the various magazines. For example, in 
the field of literature, look what this 
month has to offer: In The Reader's Di- 
gest there is an article on Ring Lard- 
ner. Interesting, I guess, as articles in 
The Reader's Digest go, although little 
is learned of Ring Lardner. 

More informative is an article in Look 
about W. Somerset Maugham. 

There is even something this month 
for you Salinger fans. (One does not usu- 
ally refer to a reading public as fans, 
but I believe the term to be appropri- 
ate in Salinger's case. One may read 
Salinger much as one would watch a 
football game. Enthusiastic to begin, 
weary on finishing. 

There are moments of excitement, long 
periods of dullness, unexpected moves, 
flashes of brilliance, and often shoddy 
play.) There is an article on Salinger in 
the current issue of Swank. Unbelieva- 



bly placed between two culturized pic- 
torials, there is a brilliant analysis of 
Salinger's private life, complete with 
"rare" photographs. Included among 
these is a picture of his house, not much 
more decorous than Buie Gymnasium; 
his jeep, ordinary enough; his mailbox, 
which appears to be no different from 
any mail box one might see on the side 
of the road between here and Byram, 
except that this one has no name on 
it; a Posted sign on a tree on Salinger's 
property; a glimpse of the rear left cor- 
ner of his station wagon; and, to cli- 
max it all, a marvelous view of his wife, 
Claire. 

After studying this photograph, anyone 
approaching Mrs. Salinger from behind 
at a distance of about twenty yards 
could not fail to recognize her. So en- 
lightening was this article that our li- 
brary should immediately subscribe to 
this wonderful magazine, which must be, 
as has been said of Jackson, a "cultural 
oasis". 



Arise, Men! Stand Up And . . . Sex? 



What this country needs is a genera- 
tion who will stand up for what they be- 
lieve. Young men and women should 
speak up, even protest if necessary. I 
see that some steps are being taken in 
this direction. The University of Wash- 
ington's Young Republican Club passed, 
among other resolutions, the following: 

"Public institutions, such as state 
schools and colleges, be enjoined from 
enforcing any penalties and sanctions on 
sexual activity that overreach the lim- 
its set under public law and the public 
courts." 

Since sex seems to have so much go- 
ing at the present, I am not sure that 
Millsaps shouldn't do something to com- 
memorate this rising wave of sexual 
freedom. I suggest that instead of tradi- 
tionalizing such immature and useless 
activities as ridiculing the freshmen on a 
set day each year, that we use that same 
day for fertility rites in honor of Diony- 
sus. This would surely be more interest- 
ing to write home about. More high 
school students would be attracted to 
our college, and the rate of transfers 
from Millsaps would show a substantial 
decrease. Who wants to see the boys in 
pajamas anyway? I can walk through 
the dorm any -night for this. And if the 
coeds are only going to dress up as little 



girls, that certainly can't be a great 
change. 

Not that the coeds aren't often treated 
as little girls. They have considerably 
less freedom as a young adult at Mill- 
saps than they did as high school stu- 
dents. I often wonder why seeking a 
higher education entails unnecessary 
personal restrictions. It has long been 
my opinion that one's academic and per- 
sonal life should be entirely removed 
from each other. A high price is paid for 
an education, not to be told what one 
may or may not do between or after 
classes. The rules and regulations here 
often border on the absurd. Before long 
something completely ridiculous will be 
introduced, like preventing women stu- 
dents from wearing shorts on campus 
or something equally as ludicrous. 

But who can afford to complain about 
rules at Millsaps? Two of the Empacs 
almost were suspended from Mississippi 
Southern for having long hair. Since the 
Empac at Millsaps last year received 
only stares and no corrective measures 
from the administration, I am on record 
as telling the Dean of Men at Southern 
that at least Millsaps is concerned with 
what goes on inside the head and not 
what grows on top of it.

His lengthy tirade even in- 
cluded one valid argument — 
at least it might appear so 
on the surface. 

Among other things, he said 
*\ . .when she (the editor)) 
completely eliminates from 
publication over half of a col- 
umn which has been written 
painstakingly by this writer, 
then turns around and at- 
tacks it in an editorial with- 
out even printing it, this is 
more than I can take." 

Good point if it were true. 
Not Edited Out 

However, Mr. Carroll's bril- 
liantly original statement 
about the tingling joy one gets 
from having trod Millsaps 
hallowed halls was not edited 
out. The fact that he turned 
his column in so late caused 
the last few paragraphs to be 
excluded during the printing 
stage; making up pages from 
unset copy necessarily in- 
volves a good deal of guess- 
work (not to mention extra 
time, many extra trips to the 
printer, verbal bouts with the 
printer, along with justified 
threats on his part to stop 
publishing the paper, and sim- 
ilar bouts with professors who 
naturally feel slighted when 
term paper outlines have not 
been turned in because re- 
search time is spent chasing 
down copy and running back 
and forth to the printer, etc., 
etc. 

The Political Editor could 
insure more tender, loving 
treatment of his journalistic 
masterpieces if he would start 
turning them in on time. 

All material is supposed to 
be turned in by noon Monday 
to be set in type and ready to 
piece together by Tuesday aft- 
ernoon. It was Tuesday be- 
fore Mr. CarroM got around to 
submitting the column which 
he so "painstakingly'* wrote 
— after the deadline! 

Could Have Been Worse 

I urge Mr. Carroll to look 
back through the last issue 
of the P&W and notice that 
there are only four spaces in- 
to which his column could 
have been fitted, due to the 
great number of ads (which 
must go in). And three of the 
spaces were smaller than the 
one he received. 

The editorial staff (and I re- 
peat — staff) saw no reason to 
exclude a stimulating debate 
on the pros and cons of Dr. 
Zhivago in order to squeeze in 
a four-page paean to the Mill- 
saps alumni, the essence of 
which could have been 
summed up in two or three 
lines. 

Incidentally, "Madame Edi- 
tor" does not require that 
what a writer says be in 



phy; she only requires that 
the writer SAY something. 

To clear up another of Mr. 
Carroll's points, I emphasize 
that the editor is not the sole 
member of the editorial staff. 
Copy may or may not be edi- 
ted by her but all of it is edi- 
ted by someone. 

The articles may reach 
print intact or they may be 
shortened to one-half or one- 
third their original length, de- 
pending on breadth of inter- 
est, timeliness, and available 
space in a particular issue. 
Realizes Limitations 

There have been many 
times when the Exchange Edi- 
tor's column didn't make it 
into print or had to be held 
over a week or cut to fit. 
Yet she never accused any- 
one of trying to "grub her 
out.'' She, evidently, is ma- 
ture enough to realize the 
limitations involved in putting 
out a college newspaper. The 
social editor's column had to 
be excluded last week, along 
with that of the humor editor, 
a number of important news 
stories, and some features 
(all of which involved as much 
work as Mr. Carroll's column, 
if not more). 

Speaking of social editors, 
if my memory serves me, last 
semester s editor resigned 
after her column was exclud- 
ed from a four-page issue of 
the paper, which contained 
150 inches of ads, leaving 
only a few inches for actual 
copy. 

Mr. Carroll's accusation 
that I caused the resignation 
of "one of the best social edi- 
tors which we have had be- 
cause there were certain peo- 
ple (including especially 
Madame Editor) who did not 
like the language she was us- 
ing in her column" is grossly 
hypocritical. 

I don't recall expressing 
any opinion one way or the 
other about Miss McLemore's 
choice of language (though we 
did delete a few "hells" and 
"damns" occasionally). 

However, Mr. Carroll 
knows all about those "cer- 
tain people" he referred to 
because he was one of them; 
he and his cohorts approached 
me in moralistic tones after 
the spring fever and rinky 
dink bit with the suggestion 
that I start exercising my pre- 
rogative and edit "Social 
Scoops" more carefully since 
it was (quote) "getting out of 
hand" 

Poly-Faced Morality 
Mr. Carroll, with his 
poly-faced morality, reminds 
me of a certain hometown 
politician who screams segre- 
gation in the daytime and

Independents Recapture 
Spirit Display Trophy 



By DIANNE PARTRIDGE 

Independents (GDI's) Kap- 
pa Alpha, and Chi Omega 
captured top honors in the 
Homecoming display compe- 
tition, last Saturday. 

Built around the theme 
• Lynx Stynx," the Independ- 
ents' first place display con- 
sisted of a Major dipping a 
lynx in a boiling pot in 
front of a blue and white 
backdrop. The Major was 
flanked by a 4 * Major De- 
Scenter" shack on which hung 
the hides of previously cap- 
tured lynx. Completing the 
display were a group of dogs 
pursuing a lynx in a near-by 
tree. 

Independents took the tro- 
phy year-before last, too. 
KA's Second 

Kappa Alpha Order's ani- 
mated project took second 
place honors in the judging. 
Carrying out the theme 
•Lynch the Lynx/' Major 
Millsaps was stringing the 
lynx on a goal post. Each 
time the Major pulled the 
rope, the lynx's legs would go 
up and down. KA's currently 
hold this spurt display trophy. 

The Chi Omega display, 
•Jinx the Lynx," was award- 
ed the third place ribbon. Cen- 
tered around a large purple 
octopus holding a football and 
a lynx, the exhibit had two 
backdrops, one telling the 
theme, the other reading "Oc- 
tipi the End-Zone." b 
LXA Display 

"Maul 'Em Majors" was 
the theme of the Lambda Chi 
Alpha project. Another ani- 
mated display, it consisted of 
Major Millsaps hitting a lynx. 
The major's arm, club in 
hand, was in a continuous up 
and down motion. 

Kappa Sigma's exhibit was 
entitled "Shut Out The Lynx." 
A closed door on which the 
theme was written was placed 
in front of a goal post to sig- 
nify a Major victory. 

What's New Pussycat? 

Pictured on a white back- 
ground, the Pi Kappa Alpha's 
display had the theme 
"What's New Pussycat?" 
Major Millsaps was shown 
stepping on a defenseless 
lynx. 

Kappa Delta's three-fold ex- 
hibit consisted of three back- 
drops lettered with 
"Scholastically Lynx Thinx," 



"Socially Lynx Drinx,' and 
"Major - ally Lynx S i n x." 
On each backdrop a picture 
was drawn to portray the 
theme. 

•Make It Three' 

Phi Mu's constructed a fire 
place with trophies in the 
form of a tiger head and a 
kangaroo head hung on the 
mantle. A major was shown 
moving toward the fireplace 
to put a lynx head in the 
vacant space. Above the dis- 
play a sign read. "Let's Make 
It Three, Majors!" 

Using a purple and white 
color scheme, the Zeta Tau 
Alpha's display was entitled 
"What's New Pussycat?" It 
pictured a major leading a 
lynx on a string.

generation, tough. Just plain 
peanut butter and jelly is still

ner. "Could I have two pieces

"Would you please toast one

There's an oddball in every

J.K.Smith 
ToEdit'67 
Bobashela 

By SUE BARNES 

Next year's Bobashela will 
be edited by James K. Smith, 
according to a recent an- 
nouncement by the Publica- 
tions Board. 

A wide range of experience 
with publications qualify 
James for this task. 

At Hinds Junior College he 
was sports editor of the 
campus newspaper, The Hind- 
son i an for two years, editor 
of the student handbook, as 
well as sports and assistant 
editor of the yearbook, the 
Eagle. 

At Millsaps James edits the 
Theta Eton, newsletter 
of Lambda Chi Alpha Fra- 
ternity; and he has been a 
sports writer and is current- 
ly a layout editor for the Pur- 
ple and White. 

Same Size 

The 1966-67 edition will be 
approximately the same size 
as this year's book, 200 pages 
dIus advertising. Some changes 
will be worked out at a later 
date, according to the new 
editor. 

Class Pictures 

Class pictures for the up- 
coming Bobashela are now 
being scheduled for the last 
week in October continuing 
through the first week in No- 
vember; the price is $2.50 per 
student. 

Business manager and sec- 
tion editors will be chosen 
this week. 

Positions Open 

The yearbooks will hopeful- 
ly be available in late spring 
prior to graduation in May. 

Several Bobashela positions 
are still open for those inter- 
ested in becoming a part of 
the staff. 



Pickup Urged 
On Bobaskelas 

The Bobashela editor re- 
quests that all students who 
haven't picked up their an- 
nuals do so between 3 and 5 
p. m. today. The Bobashela 
office is in the upstairs Stu- 
dent Union. 



"Washington, 
My Washington 



99 



By HENRY CHATHAM 
Washington Correspondent 
EDITOR'S NOTE: Henry, a 
member of the P&W staff is 
spending his junior semester 
as a participant in the Wash- 
ington Semester Program, 
sponsored by the American 
University. His purpose for 
writing this article is, accord- 
to him, twofold: (quote) "(1) 
To publicize a much-deserv- 
ing Washington Semester Pro- 
gram that Millsaps is a part 
of, (2) To give my old master 
printing material." 

1* ' 1t it 

"Washington, My Washing- 
ton". . .that's a song they sing 
here. Sometimes it sounds as 
if it has just wandered across 
the state line, but it always 
captures the strange feeling 
that overcomes any stranger 
during his first few days in 
our nation's capital. 

For a Washington Semester 
student suddenly cast into 
that whirlpool of lectures, in- 
terviews, reading, and more 
reading which had been so 
far away from the idle sum- 
mer mind, it is a happy mo- 
ment to stop and think. 
Last White Knight 

The Southerner is reputed 
to be the last white knight in 
a vast graveyard to which all 
passenger trains eventually 
must go. 

Perhaps it is. 

The silver coaches roar 
through open countryside 
convincing everyone that bill- 
boards are indeed planted and 
do not grow wild. The swamps 
and cotton fields of Mississip- 
pi and Alabama, the tobacco 
hills of the Carolinas, the 
beautiful, rolling, farmland of 
Virginia, all take on a new 
dimension. 

Even the old Negro in the 
back seems the rustic philoso- 
pher instead of the expected 
obnoxious windbag. 

The convivial atmosphere of 
the club car pervades the en- 
tire train, giving any Millsaps 
student wondering thoughts 
about how the student body 
could go en masse to the next 
Southwestern game. 

First Glimpse 

As you rumble across the 
Potomac and get your first 
glimpse of the city, only one 
thing overshadows the majes- 
tic beauty of gleaming white 
monuments— the many win- 
dowless buildings called 
home by poor souls sleeping 
on rag-covered floors within 
a stone's throw of the White 
House. 

Washington is a study of 
contrasts: the splendor that 
was Rome and all her ruins 
existing side by side. It is a 
sight never to be forgotten, 
but necessarily pushed to the 
side when there are other 
things to do. 



Like attending seminars. 

Instead of a few leisurely 
days to sightsee, the program 
begins immediately with the 
ceaseless pressure that be- 
comes a part of your very ex- 
istence within about three 



muscles of that right forefin- 
ger are carefully loosened, it 
is amusing to struggle through 
the introductions and question 
repeatedly as to the prop- 
er pronunciation of Muskin- 
gum as you scribble out the 
letters M-i-l-l-s-a-p-s. 

You listen to the telephone 
operators ask again for the 
spelling of Millsaps, and you 
hear a giant in the world of 
political science refer to it 
with an unmistakable air of 
respect. The chairman-elect 
of the powerful House Rules 
Committee, a William Col- 
mer, turns out to be a proud 
Millsaps alumnus. 

A satisfying but foot-weary 
day ends, night comes, and 
the hunt-and-peck system of 
typing has to do for now. 
Weekend — Georgetown 

And then. . . and then the 
weekend finally arrives. That 
quaint section of town known 
as Georgetown is a fine place. 

The cobblestone streets, the 
old town houses, the shops 
and restaurants stand staidly 
by as the "strip" (as M 
Street is known to outsiders 
but never referred to as by 
the well - heeled residents) 
lives the life of twentieth cen- 
tury America well into the 
morning. 

The music pouring out of 
every door and the million 
people wandering aimlessly 
across the trolly tracks re- 
mind this Southerner of a par- 
ticular street in good old New 
Orleans. One World is not so 
different to imagine in some 
respects. 

City of Contrast 

Over a hill as the night 
fades into a foggy dawn, the 
centuries-old mules pull a cen- 
turies-old barge down a canal 
that once had Pittsburgh as 
its ultimate destination. The 
old and the new, the majestic 
and the humble, forever side 
by side in this city of con- 
trasts, Washington, my Wash- 
ington.

game with the MC Choctaws. 

Our version of the song to-

Parking Rules To Be Enforced 

In order to provide parking space for the faculty and 
day students and in order to promote safety, several rules 
have been imposed for parking. A second violation of these 
rules will result in the removal of the offender's car 
from the campus for the remainder of the semester, ac- 
cording to the Student Motor Vehicle Comptroller and his 
committee. 

1. A parking sticker must be purchased by every stu- 
dent who operates a car on campus. Stickers, costing $2.00, 
must be placed on the righthand side of the front wind- 
shield before classes start. 

2) . The parking lot between Murrah Hall and the li- 
brary is reserved exclusively for the faculty. 

3) . Yellow spaces are closed to parking. 

4) . Spaces reserved for members of the faculty are 
never to be used by students. 

5) . Motorcycles may not be driven on the sidewalks.

Symposium: 




Purple And White Writers Being 'Suppressed' 
And 'Qualified' By Shady Madame Editor 



By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

I do not expect this column 
to be printed. I fully expect 
it to be either suppressed 
completely or qualified by an 
4 'editor's note"— the kind of 
suppression which this paper 
has become subject to over 
the last semester of its publi- 
cation. For too long J this writ- 
er has remained silent about 
this problem— but no more. 

If you read Madame Edi- 
tor's column last week, you 
probably are wondering ex- 
actly what she was so upset 
about. Well, I am going to 
try to tell you about that, as 
well as some other things 
that are on my mind. 
'Strange Voices' 

This writer is one of the 
culprits with the "strange 
voices" who have been "ped- 
dling trite platitudes about 
Prodding Millsaps hallowed 



halls' and other nebulous ac- 
tivities." If you are wonder- 
ing why you haven't heard 
me say it yet, it is because 
that was a part of my last 
column which was convenient- 
ly cut because of "lack of 
space" in last week's publi- 
cation. 

Every since I have been 
writing for the Purple and 
White I have noticed that 
whenever Madame Editor 
runs across something 
marked for publication which 
might run contrary to her 
own opinion, she quite often 
finds it to the best interest of 
the paper to either delete it 
entirely from the Purple and 
White or to tack on an edi- 
tor's note which lets the read- 
er know how right she is and 
how wrong the person who 
disagrees with her is. 

Now granted, it is the edi- 
tor's right to edit the mate- 
rial which goes into "her" 
newspaper. 

Unbearable 

But when she completely 
eliminates from publication 
over half of a column which 
has been written painstaking- 
ly by this writer, then turns 



around and attacks it in an 
editorial without even print- 
ing it, this is more than I can 
take. I hardly think that one 
column would turn the Purple 
and White into "a syrupy, sen- 
timental farce." She might at 
least have given this writer 
an opportunity to be branded 
as such if that is what he 
wrote. 

This is not the first such 
incident in my memory. I re- 
call vividly the resignation of 
one of the best social editors 
which we have ever had be- 
cause there were certain peo- 
ple (including especially 
Madame Editor) who did not 
like the language she was us- 
ing in her column. I will be 
the first to admit that I did 
not particularly like it either 
at times, but that not with- 
standing, I did not agree with 
the shady manner in which 
the whole thing was handled. 
Individualism— Whose? 

When Madame Editor 
speaks of "individualism," I 
cannot help but wonder what 
she means. Perhaps she is 
talking about individualism as 
she defines it. And maybe 
that is the reason for the 



LETTERS TO 
THE EDITOR 



"A democracy is a society in which 
honorable men may honorably disagree' 



Former Director 
Praises Millsaps 
Stage Band 

Dear Editor, 

It pleases me very much to 
read about the continuation of 
the small but apparently 
hardy Millsaps Band. The 
Band adds to the college, not 
only as a pep organization 
which alone is sufficient rea- 
son for its existence, but in 
other ways, as witnessed by 
the High School Day program, 
the Christmas Concert, and 
various programs for busi- 
ness groups and high schools 
last year. 

However, I read between 
the lines of Margaret Stone's 
article in the Sept. 29 issue of 
the P&W, a story with which 
I'm only too familiar — one of 
a few people working with a 
minimum of personnel and a 
maximum of guts to keep the 
band alive. 

Because of the Band's very 
definite contribution to Mill- 
saps, these people should be 
supported. People who can 
play instruments should join, 
especially if they play brass, 



reeds, or percussion. 

Bill Lamb 

P. S.— Troy Watkins and Tom- 
my Woldridge are beginning 
their third year as band mem- 
bers and should be individual- 
ly recognized for a devotion 
to duty approximately equal 
to a three year letterman on 
the old non - subsidized Mill- 
saps football team.

Ex-Photoiirapher 
Says First Issue 
'Outstanding 

May I congratulate you and 
your staff on a very fine first 
issue. The paper was "out- 
standing," (as we in the Navy 
would say) in every way. I 
especially liked the bold new 
headlines. Keep up the good 
work and the P&W will once 
again be one of the nation's 
finest collegiate newspapers. 

I enjoyed working with you 
last year. I hope to see you 
and the rest of the staff in 
November. 

I found the enclosed in the 
form of a poster in my com- 
mander's office and thought 
that it m i g h t be of interest 
and use to you. 



It is my right to be uncom- 
mon—if I can. 

I seek opportunity— not se- 
curity. 

I do not wish to be a kept 
citizen, humbled and dulled 
by having the state look after 
me. 

I want to take the calculat- 
ed risk; to dream and to 
build, to fail and succeed. 

I refuse to barter incentive 
for a dole. 

I prefer the challenges of 
life to the guaranteed exist- 
ence; the thrill of fulfillment 
to the stale calm of utopia. 

I will not trade freedom for 
beneficience nor my dignity 
for a handout. 

I will never cower before 
any master nor bend to any 
threat. 

It is my heritage to stand 
erect, proud and unafraid; to 
think and act for myself, en- 
joy the benefit of my crea- 
tions and to face the world 
boldly and say, this I have 
done. 

All this is what it means 
to be an American. — "My 
Creed" by Dean Alfange 
Ernest C. Rucker USN 



flict— everyone doesn't define 
individualism like Madame 
Editor, so let's just grub out 
those who don't think like her. 

It is rather ironic that 
someone could talk of indi- 
vidualism and intellectual 
honesty in the same issue in 
which she has just suppressed 
someone else's idea about 
something because it doesn't 
agree with her thoughts on 
the matter. 

It is one thing to be an in- 
dividualist; it is quite another 
to let oneself become so com- 
pletely obsessed with individ- 
ualism that it comes to en- 
compass his whole existence. 
All Individualists 

If you want to be an indi- 
vidualist, then be one. We all 
like to think of ourselves as 
individualists. But to write 
something which you don't be- 
lieve in order to display your 
individualism and courage for 
everyone to marvel at is as 
dishonest as to follow along 
with everything fhe crowd 



does in order to be socially 
accepted — or to get your col- 
umn printed in the Purple 
and White. 

This writer will write what 
he believes. 

Not For Agreement 

And he is not writing just 
to be in agreement with the 
editor of the Purple and White 
about the nature of Millsaps' 
Homecoming or to satisfy a 
professor who has nothing 
better to talk about in class 
than what the political editor 
of the Purple and White ought 
or ought not to be writing 
about. 

No, Madam Editor, the spir- 
it of "individualism" and "in- 
tellectual honesty" is not gone 
from Millsaps. You can help 
foster it, however, if you your- 
self will be "intellectually 
honest" and print in what you 
haughtily refer to as "your" 
paper those ideas which do 
not travel exactly in the same 
direction as yours.

sleeps with his maid at night. 

The Political Editor is plac- 
ing himself in a very precar- 
ious position by accusing me 
of writing (quote) "something 
which you don't believe in or- 
der to display your individual- 
ism and courage for everyone 
to marvel at." 

I can't help wondering, in 
the first place, where Mr. 
Carroll gets the authority to 
decide what I believe; in the 
second, it doesn't take "indi- 
vidualism" or "courage" to 
write a silly column in the 
P&W. 

By individualism I was re- 
ferring to the "gleebs" who 
have the guts to sit in the 
wrong corner of the grill, 
the "wugs" who dare blow 
cigarette smoke out of the 
wrong corners of their mouths 
(and others who engage in 
activities which the Politi- 
cal Editor previously labeled 
unorthodox and unfitting for 
Millsaps puppets). These peo- 
ple are individuals because 
they don't give a happy hoot 
what the Political Editor or 
any other social climbers 
think of them. 

Give=Take 

I regret that Mr. Carroll 
has seen fit to take my brief 
allusions to his column so per- 
sonally. Perhaps if he isn't 
big enough to take a little crit- 
icism, then he'd better stop 
dishing it out — publicly or 
privately! 

In closing Fd like to say 



Matters 



that the P&W is willing to 
print any "idea" the Political 
Editor may have (regardless 
of how radical)— as soon as he 
comes up with one. 



Millsaps' M - bench, campus 
landmark, was built about 
1928. It was the parting gift 
of the classes of 1926, 1927, 
and 1928.

Randolph-Macon Next 
On Millsaps Grid List 



By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 

In an earlier edition of the 
Purple & White it was said 
that Austin College was prob- 
ably the toughest team the 
Majors would face this year. 
This, however, may not be 
the case. 

This Saturday the Millsaps 
football team will play unde- 
feated and only twice scored 
upon Randolph - Macon Col- 
lege of Ashland, Virginia. 

Randolph-Macon is current- 
ly enjoying a 4-0 record and 
only two touchdowns have 
been scored on them in those 
four games. They Rive up an 
average of less than four 
points per game, in other 
words. 

On top of that, they are 16th 
in the nation on total defense 
in the small college division, 
allowing only 133 (yards pass- 



ing and rushing combined) 
per game. 

Randolph has 28 lettermen 
returning from last season's 
team. Coach Harper Davis 
said that they are one of the 
biggest team's Millsaps will 
play this year. Their tackles 
weighed in at 230-pounds each 
and most all of their linemen 
are the tall, strong, rangy- 
type. 

The Macon team runs from 
a winged-T offense and usual- 
ly go with a 5-4 setup on de- 
fense. 

So far this year they have 
defeated Washington & Lee, 
28-0, Sewanee, 7-0, Bridgewa- 
ter, 17-7, and New Port Col- 
lege, 20-7. 

If anything can be derived 
from comparing scores, and 
most people say you can't do 
it, the game should be a con- 
test between a powerful Mill-

saps orfense and a powerful 
Randolph-Macon defense. 

The Majors downed Se- 
wanee, 40-28. Randolph Ma- 
con could manage only seven 
points against the Tigers to 
our 40, but Sewanee couldn't 
even muster a score against 
that tremendous defense and 
scored 28 points against the 
Majors. Sewanee is the only 
common opponent the two 
have faced this year. 

Coach Davis reported that 
the Majors would be going up 
with full strength and no one 
is injured seriously enough to 
miss the action. 

While the Randolph-Macons 
will have to contend with a 
passing and running game 
from our Majors, our boys 
will be concerned mostly with 
a running attack. 

That phase of the game will 
probably get the most atten- 
tion during practice sessions 
this week. 

The Majors will fly to Ash- 
land via chartered plane, 
leaving Jackson at approxi- 
mately 8:15 Friday morning. 
They will return at 11:30 Sun- 
day morning and it might be 
a good idea to have a recep- 
tion awaiting them when they 
step off the plane. 

The Majors did not play the 
Randolph team last year so 
it is hard to pick a favorite 
to win. The game should be a 
fairly even match, however, 
and the Majors are in a good 
position to pick victory No. 
4 while in Virginia.

SPECTATOR 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 



People around town are be- 
ginning to talk about Mill- 
saps' suddenly successful 
football capers and it s high 
time they did. 

Several local high school 
coaches came out to view the 
goings on last Saturday, and 
from the reactions I gathered, 
they were very pleased with 
what they saw. 

Besides these visiting 
coaches, representatives from 
the various news media about 
town are beginning to take 
notice of the Majors' success- 
es. The headlines in the pa- 
pers increase in size with 
each win and better positions 
in print are also being no- 
ticed. 

Several photographers 
strolled the sidelines during 
last week's 26-0 homecoming 
victory over Southwestern of 
Memphis, a couple of sports 
writers, and a representative 
of the television world, Aug- 
gie File, was also present. 

All of these more than wel- 
come guests were doubtless 
impressed with the powerful 
offensive capabilities of the 
"new look" Majors and the 
defense was something to 
brag about, also. 

All of the backfield person- 
el, quarterback Danny Neely, 
halfbacks Troy Lee Jenkins 
and Edwin (Dumbo) Massey, 
and fullback Timmy Millis 
were carrying on beautifully 
against Southwestern. 

The Majors looked like a 
professional team on that first 
TD, which took only eight 
plays to cover the 69-yard 
long drive. Neely's throws 
were on target and well blend- 
ed with occasional land plays. 
4-Game Statistics 

A view at the total, four- 
game statistics is in order at 
this time. These stats are sup- 
plied by Major sports infor- 
mation director Harry Shat- 
tuck, who has been most co- 
operative and helpful with his 
services. 

In the offensive department, 
the Majors are averaging a 
whopping 353.8 jvards per 
game and have wowed op- 
ponents 301.0 yards per game 
in total offense. Quarterback 
Neely leads the individual to- 
tal offense stats with 793 
yards to his credit, including 
742 yards through the air and 
51 yards on the ground. Jenk- 
ins has 317 yards rushing and 
is second to Neely in individ- 
ual total offense. 

On the ground, the Majors 
are averaging 168.3 yards per 
clip to 111.7 for the opponents. 
The Millsaps players have 
pounded out 673 yards over 
land to 447 allowed for the op- 
position. Jenkins leads the 
rushers with 306 net yards 
and is followed by fullback 
Millis who has 164 net yards. 
Jenkins has been thrown for 
only 11-yards in losses this 
year and Millis has lost only 
six in his efforts. 

Getting back to Neely's 
passing, the senior wonder 
has completed 55 to 85 at- 



tempts, a fantastic 64.7 per 
cent, for 742 yards .Only three 
Neely aerials have been inter- 
cepted and 10 have resulted 
in touchdowns. 

Edwin Massey is the 
leading pass receiver, having 
grabbed 23 flips for 273 yards 
and three touchdowns. Jenk- 
ins follows Massey in this de- 
partment with 15 recep- 
tions and 233 yards. 

Scoring Leaders 
End Ted Weller and Jenk- 
ins are currently tied for the 
scoring laurels with 30-points 
apiece. The Majors as a team 
have 112 points and have had 
only 67 scored against them. 

Punter Gerald Robbins has 
been averaging 37.7 yards per 
boot and has been a big help 
in backing the opposition into 
good position for our defense. 

In last week's win over 
Southwestern, the defensive 
unit should be congratulated 
for such an excellent job. 
They really wanted to shut 
out the Lynx in a bad way 
and their wish was accom- 
plished with hard work. Four 
times the Lynx penetrated in- 
side the Major 20-yard line 
only to be held by the stub- 
born defensive efforts of the 
likes of Stanley Graham, Bill 
Milton, and David Martin. 
Milton was playing with a 
painful nose injury and real- 
ly deserves credit for a job 
well done even though handi- 
capped. 

Basketball Begins 
Coach Jim Montgomery 
wants to kinda keep basket- 
ball out of the sports picture 
until football season is over 
but we do want to mention 
that the team has begun drills 
and will be working out in the 
Buie Gym every week day. 

Practice started Monday, 
officially according to the 
NCAA rules, and Monty is 
working with 15 candidates. 

The dates have been an- 
nounced for the first annual 
Tip-off Tourney to be held in 
Buie Gym, Dec. 9-10. Friday 
Dec. 9, at 7 o'clock, Missis- 
sippi College will play South- 
eastern Louisiana and at 9, 
Millsaps will vs. Austin Col- 
lege of Sherman, Texas. 

Saturday night Dec. 10, the 
first round losers will play at 
7 and the championship game 
will begin at 9. 

Also, the dates for the third 
annual Magnolia basketball 
tourney have been released. 
This tourney, to be held in 
the Coliseum and sponsored 
by the YMCA, will start Dec. 
2 at 7 o'clock when Millsaps 
plays Belhaven and continues 
when MC plays Ole Miss at 
9. The first round losers will 
play at 7 the next night and 
the championship game will 
follow. 

The Magnolia tourney is the 
first action scheduled for the 
Majors this year. Coach 
Monty says that his team has 
been working mostly on get- 
ting in shape lately and he 
started setting his offense and 
installing his defense this

spring semester. The men stu- 
dents had an average of 1.49, 
a decline from the 1.51 of the 
previous spring; fraternity 
men had an over-all of 1.57. 
Women students, with 1.69, 
raised their preceding aver- 
age of 1.66. 

Second place sorority for 
the trophy was Chi Omega 
with a 1.760, while first place 
Kappa Delta had a 1.77. 

Pi Kappa Alpha, with a 
1.526, placed as runner - up 
fraternity. Kappa Alpha re- 
ceived the cup for their 1.56 
average. 

Sigma Lambda 

Genrose Mullen, O'Hara 
Baas, and Jean Nicholson 
were tapped by Sigma Lamb-

Enrollment at Millsaps has 
reached a record peak this 
fall with a total of 925 stu- 
dents, according to statistics 
recently released by Regis- 
trar Paul D. Hardin. 

The previous record enroll- 
ment was in 1959 when the 
student body numbered 920. 
Fall enrollment last year 
was 873. 

The freshman class alone 
has 268 students. There are 
207 students in the sophomore 
class, 203 in the junior class, 
and 157 in the senior class. 
Ninety students are unclassi- 
fied. 

Frosh Enrollment Up 

Enrollment of Jackson stu- 
dents in the freshman class 
increased 28 per cent over 
last year. In 1965 the median 
American College Test (ACT) 
score for the freshman class 
was 24 while the median for 
this year's class is 24.7. 

Students this year repre- 
sent 72 of the 82 Mississippi 
counties, 27 states, and two 
foreign countries. Geographi- 
cally, 297 students are resi- 
dents of Jackson, 481 are resi- 
dents of Mississippi outside of 
Jackson, and 147 are from 
other states or countries. 
Out-of-State rs 

The largest out-of-state rep- 
resentation, 41, is from Ten- 
nessee; tallowed by Louisi- 
ana with 22; Florida, 15; 
Georgia, 12; Arkansas, 8; 
Kentucky, 7; Texas, 5; Ala- 
bama, 4; Illinois, 3; and 
Maryland, 3. 

Colorado, Indiana, New Jer- 
sey, New Mexico, New York, 
North Carolina, Oklahoma, 
and Virginia have two each; 
Arizona, California, Iowa, 
Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, 
Oregon, Pennsylvania, and 
West Virginia have one each.

Methodists compose the 
largest group, religion-wise, 
with 399. Baptists, with 170, 
are second, followed by Pres- 
byterian with 89, Episcopal 
with 79, and Roman Catholic 
with 57. Additional religions 
represented are Disciples of

Orthodox, Church of Christ, 
Jewish, Unitarian, Assembly 
of God, Christ Scientist, Mos- 
lem, Eastern Orthodox, Jeho- 
vah's Witnesses, Mennonites, 
and Church of God. 



Stylus Taking 
Manuscripts 

Stylus, the Millsaps lit- 
erary magazine, is now ac- 
cepting manuscripts to be 
considered for publication 
in the fall issue. The dead- 
line for submissions is 
Saturday, Nov. 5. 

All poetry, short stories, 
one act plays, and essays 
are welcome. 

Writers may submit man- 
uscripts to Lana Cannon, 
Gary Carson, Charles 
Swoope or James Golden. 
Manuscripts may also be 
left in the Stylus mail box, 
15211. 



The question remains: 
Where are we going? Universi- 
ty status? Then what? 

Students, we can certainly 
help Millsaps College by join- 
ing in the fund-raising drive 
to meet the Ford Foundation 
challenge. But our responsi- 
bility doesn't end there. 

To remain honest, open, 
critical and individualistic— 
that's our biggest challenge.

CAFETERIA PROTEST 



GEARY ALFORD 



Every year there comes a time when 
sooner or later something has to be writ- 
ten about the cafeteria. Every year the 
lines grow longer, the food gets colder, 
and the prices go up. It is understanda- 
ble that in a Great Society we should 
have Great food prices; but there should 
be some correlation (in food at least) 
between cost and quality. 

Why is it that our cafeteria simul- 
taneously raises the prices and cuts 
down the portion? We are told that the 
cafeteria loses money each year. Yet 
the prices at Millsaps are comparable 
(for what you get) to most restaurants. 
When we inquire about this, people in 
the Business Office tell us if we don't 



like it, we should eat in other restau- 
rants. It is our opinion that we, as stu- 
dents, shouldn't have to go off campus 
in order to eat. We" don't have the time 
or the money. 

If the cafeteria is to serve us what it 
has in the past, (And I'm not saying it's 
always bad) it could at least serve it to 
us hot! Here is one improvement that I 
feel sure can be made. They have the 
equipment. So why not use it. There is 
no excuse, in my opinion, why one should 
have to stand in line for half and hour, 
and pay half a dollar for cold "hot roast 
beef". 

Alas! As in all institutional dining 
halls, to eat is human, to digest divine.

MATTERS 

MARIE SMITH 
Editor 




By Mary Jane 

News Editor 

Due to adverse weather 
conditions in Washington, 
D. C, Marie could not write 
her column this week. You 
ask what Washington weather 
has to do with Marie writing 
her column? Well, I shall 
proceed to tell you. 

Marie flew to Randolph- 
Macon for the game last 
week-end and bad weather 
caused a delay in the return 
flight schedule. So Marie 
dashed on up to Washington 
in hopes the weather condi- 
tions there might be more fa- 
vorable for flying — but they 
weren't! Stranded is therefore 
the best description for her 
situation. 

Hopefully, Marie will be 
safely back by the time this 
paper comes out; if she isn't, 
someone had better go look 
for her. But in the mean- 



time, the press waits for no 
one and since copy for the 
paper goes to the printer on 
Monday morning (when it's 
on time) we just couldn't wait 
for Marie. 

Congratulations 

Meanwhile, back at the 'ole 
homestead . . . Congratula- 
tions to all the new tappees. 
Your fine example should 
spur many others to aim for 
higher scholastic goals. 

Due to the absence of our 
editor, this edition lacks the 
vigor and spirit so evident in 
the last issue. It's been awful- 
ly quiet around the P&W 
office. . . . 

I feel very much out of 
place writing Marie's column. 
No one can quite take the 
place of such a dedicated 
worker as Marie who gives 
such a great deal of her time 
to the publication of the 
PURPLE & WHITE. 



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



Dear P%W: 

We all enjoyed thoroughly 
the burlesque mock epic of 
the past week. It showed us 
the extreme lengths to which 
devoted and concerned polit- 
ical editors and plain editors 
will go to further interest in a 
good thing— the PURPLE & 
WHITE. Furthermore I'd like 
to say I'm in sympathy with 
your purpose. A college news- 
paper is a unique thing 
among nations, if you'll par- 
don the expression. Ideas for 
newspapers can only come 
from minds, and how many of 
us use ours? 

Obviously a whole clump of 
minds cooperated on last 
week's paper, which was 
unique, stirring, interesting, 
exciting, stimulating, very hu- 
morous, and human to say 



the least. I can hardly wait to 
see the next one. 

Marilyn Maxwell 



Books are not men and 
Yet they are alive, 

They are man's memory 
and his aspiration.

present and his past, 

The tools he builds with.

Drug Usage 
Not Confined 
To Beat Set 



Drug usage among Ameri- 
can students may not be as 
widespread as some fear, but 
it is not confined to the 
slums, or to a miniscule 
beatnik fringe. 

According to a report in the 
September issue of Seventeen 
Magazine, based on 1,100 re- 
sponses to a survey sent by 
the publication to girls of 13 
to 20, from every state in the 



Findings 

.5.5% surveyed (close to one 
out of every 18) have used 
drugs for other than medici- 
nal purposes at least once; 

.three out of 10 of these ex- 
perimenters—one in every 61 
girls studied— are still using 
drugs; 

.more than eight out of 10 
of the regular users smoke 
marijuana. . .more than a 
third swallow pep pills. . .al- 
most a third take LSD— and 
most are involved with more 
than a single drug; 

.these girls have little diffi- 
culty in securing drugs 
through illicit channels. 

Pep Pills Hazardous 

The study showed, also, 
that pep pills (amphotamines) 
are widely used by those who 
under-estimate their dangers. 

Some college students take 
them at exam time to keep 
awake for all-nigiht studying, 
and some mistakenly believe 
dexedrine (a full-fledged am- 
phetamine) is free from haz- 
ard. 

One student, who had four 
finals in three days, took 
"dex" to help her stay awake 
to study. The result: "She 
thought she wrote a brilliant 
economics exam. . .found out 
later that she had just 
scrawled a single sentence — 
4 1 am a sugar plum fairy' — 
all over the blue book."

Coeds Study And Travel In Europe 



By CHERYL BARRETT 

Even though traveling in 
Europe is an experience many 
would starve for, it does have 
its hazards , if you're female. 
The worst one of all: having 
to face all those probing ques- 
tions on continental men. 
Trite as it may be, European 
men and morals are still and 
probably always will be the 
two most discussed and inter- 
esting topics to American 
college students in particular. 

Britty Merritt, Beverly 
Humphries and Julia Ward, 
having just returned from a 
study-holiday in Europe, seem 
to agree that the men don't 
let language barriers stand in 
the way of dating American 
girls. Said one, "They love to 
date American girls — so they 
can practice their English." 

More Alive 



European men feel that 
American girls are more alive 
and enjoyable to be with than 
their own women. European 
women, the girls noticed, are 
somewhat more feminine than 
most American girls but lack 
the spirit of Americans. 

Perhaps that is the reason 
for women still being consid- 
ered inferior there. 

Britty, Bev, and Julia dis- 
covered in their far - flung 
travels of Europe, which in- 
cluded Scandinavia, that the 
Northern men are more like 
Americans than the South Eu- 
ropeans. German, English and 
Scandinavian men, while 
friendly, are not the birds of 
prey that the French and 
Italians seemed to be. 

Dating in Europe is differ- 
ent from the American way of 
dating. If a boy comes to a 
girl's house to get her for a 



date the girl's parents will 
take this to mean that they 
are engaged; therefore, girls 
meet the boys at a movie, 
cafe, or some chateau or cas- 
tle on the R h i n e, or the 
T i v o 1 e Fountain, or the 
Leaning Tower of Pizza, or 
whatever it is they do over 
there. 

Really though, dates there 
are often family affairs— pic- 
nics, or often just evenings at 
their homes. 

Northerns Like Americans 

Our students abroad 
found that of all Europeans 
the English, Germans and 
Corsicans were the friendliest. 
The Germans, they felt, were 
the nicest, most polite and 
most helpful of all and 
seemed to like Americans bet- 
ter. The English were "friend- 
ly and honest." 

More At Home 

Asked about where they felt 
more at home Britty replied 
in Denmark, saying that the 
Danish food was delicious. 

Julia felt most at home in 
Holland, where she enjoyed 
Christmas. Christmas in Hol- 
land is celebrated, with gifts, 
on the fifth instead of the 25th 
of December. The 25th is a 
family day there instead of a 
gift-giving day. While in Hol- 
land Julia learned to eat a 
European dish of raw meat 
and onions (the cows, having 
been fed on beer are all lean 
and no fat), which she said 
was actually very good. 

When asked about how the 
Europeans feel toward each 
other their answer was quite 
surprising. The French, they 
thought, disliked everyone but 
French, American tourists es- 
pecially; however they could 



tolerate American students. 
The French are very nation- 
alistic, reserving a special dis- 
like for the German nation 
and they still have a vivid 
memory of the war. This dis- 
like for the Germans is shared 
by the Italians, of whom the 
French men are jealous. 



The girls said it took time 
to get to know the Europeans, 
but once they did their friend- 
ships were lasting. This was a 
quality in Americans that dis- 
appoints the Europeans; we 
are quicker to make friends 
but don't take them as 
seriously as Europeans do. 
They may have fewer friends 
but they keep them for a life- 
time. However, the girls no- 
ticed that they do not seem to 
be sincere people; they may 
say one thing while meaning 
another. 

As for their attitudes to- 
wards Americans they feel 
that we are trite and don't 
have any culture. People our 
age in Europe are actually 
younger, or not as mature as 
college students in America. 

Continentals while their 
spare time away by sitting in 
cafes talking of philosophy. 
Their philosophy centers 
around a live-today attitude 
for they give little considera- 
tion to the future. This per- 
haps ties in with the fact that 
Europeans rarely ever go to 
church except on Christmas, 
christenings, weddings, funer- 
als and Easter. Their re 
n o w n e d cathedrals are 
thought of as works of art 
rather than places of worship. 

P-Parior 

An interesting sideline to 



their trip was their encounter 
with the continental bathroom, 
or p-parlor. The p-parlor is a 
public, sidewalk bathroom 
covering the body from the 
shoulders to just above the 
ankles. They are only large 
enough for one person at a 
time but men and women use 
the same ones. 

This was also true of the 
hotels where everyone shared 
the same bathroom. Some of 
the hotels however did have 
half-baths to each room and 
were surprisingly inexpensive, 
Britty found one in Spain for 
70 cents a night. 

The moral to Britty, Julia, 
and Beverly's story is please 
be kind to foreigners, Eu- 
ropean or otherwise.

Concerning Events, 
Words And Whistles 



By LINDSAY MERCER 
Exchange Editor 

Remember Martin St. 
James— the illustrious hypno- 
tist who visited on the Mill- 
saps campus not long ago? 
He appeared for the second 
time at Mississippi Southern. 

The Student Printz reports 
that Martin St. James took 
time earlier in the day of his 
performance for a more per- 
sonal appearance. 

He paid a private visit to 
a student, Mike Morris, who 
is in the hospital recovering 
from a recent injury in in- 
tramural football. Morris had 
seen St. James when he came 
to USM last year, and com- 
mented that he wanted to go 
back this year. The visit came 
as a surprise to the Southern 
student— a very welcome sur- 
prise. 

Private Vocabulary 

Vocabulary training is 
among the most important 
studies in life — and David 
Ginn in the Red and Black 
of the University of Georgia 
has a pertinent vocabulary 
study which he devised him- 
self: 

Dust: Mud with the juice 
squeezed out. 

Father: The kin you love to 
touch. 

Iceburg: A permanent 
wave. 

Insecticide: When an insect 
commits suicide. 

Love: The only game that 
isn't postponed, because of 
darkness, rain, sleet, snow, 
etc. 

Mason-Dixon Line: Dividing 
line between "you all" and 
"youse guys'* 

Off Limits: A place where 
all the fun is. 



Reno: The land of the free. 
Las Vegas: The home of the 
brave. 

Russia: The place where a 
guy can talk his head off. 

Shot: When you've had six 
of them, you're half. 

Virtue: Insufficient tempta- 
tion. 

This could start a revolu- 
tion in the dictionary business 
(and make Webster turn over 
in his grave!) 

Chess, Anyone? 
Some people have found a 
pleasant way to beat the con- 
stant drudgery of lines during 
registration. The New Hamp- 
shire of the University of New 
Hampshire had a picture of 
two boys playing chess while 
they were waiting. Incidental- 
ly, one was the president of 
the Chess Club; maybe he 
was soliciting members. 

Bye, Bye Whistle 

The steam whistle is no 
more! 

According to the Virginia 
Tech of Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute, the pulsating roar 
which bellowed from atop the 
power plant each morning at 
seven, each noon, and each 
evening at six has been sil- 
enced. 

The old steam whistle will 
be heard only when calling 
the rescue squad of the firo 
department. For years, stu- 
dents have requested, pleaded 
and picketed in efforts to stop 
the daily blasts on the steam 
whistle, and finally last sum- 
mer the administration decid- 
ed to put an end to the sched- 
uled blasts. 

Some old Tech students will 
need time to get used to not 
having their nerves shattered 
at least three times a day. 



Biology Department 
Using New Equipment 



By DIANNE PARTRIDGE 

Millsaps' biology depart- 
ment will put into use over 
$75,600 worth of new equip- 
ment during this school year. 

"We obtained the money for 
this equipment through our 
own hard work," stated Mr. 
Ronald Bell, department 
chairman. The Biology De- 
partment received a "match- 
ing funds" grant from the 
National Science Foundation 
Instructional Scientific Equip- 
ment Program. Under this 
grant, Millsaps must match 
the Foundations $16,150 with 
another $16,150, making a 
grand total of $32,300, for the 
year. 

A fluorescent microscope 
with accessories and a 
chromatograph with acces- 
sories were purchased with 
these funds. 

Also, from the NSF, the de- 
partment was awarded an Un- 
dergraduate Research Par- 
ticipation Program Grant to- 
taling $7000. This grant went 
toward the purchase of a ro- 
tary microtome and specto- 
phptometric equipment. 

Largest Grant 

Largest of the grants was 
the Title VI grant which 
reached a total of $35,000. A 
Warburg re spirometer, a 
Corning all-glass still, a fully 
equipped dark room, projec- 
tion equipment, and a fully 
equipped animal room were 
made possible through this 
grant. 

It also enabled the verter- 
brate morphalogy and field 
biology laboratories to be ren- 
ovated. For the botany, ge- 
netics, microbiology, zoology, 
and phipology classes, an au- 
toclave and a hot air steri- 
lizer were purchased. 

Expansion of vertebrate 
morphology laboratory facili- 
ties includes the purchase of 
24 compound microscopes, 24 
disecting microscopes, 12 
aymographs with accessories, 
4 microprojectors, animal me- 
tabolism units, $3000 worth of 
chemicals and miscellaneous 
equipment and prepared 
slides valued at $7,200. 

In addition, the department 
obtained $2000 worth of pre-

Donation 

The Aloe Scientific Compa- 
ny donated new equipment to 
the Biology Department total- 



ing $1304.68. 

Applications for these 
grants were complex propos- 
als that took an average of 
two to three weeks to com- 
plete. These proposals were 
submitted by the department 
in 1965 for use in 1966. 



Accidents (?) About 
Campus Rampant 



Unusual accidents seem to 
be rather widespread among 
both students and faculty on 
the Millsaps campus. Some 
typical accidents (?) reported 
include such things as: 

— misjudging distance and 
ending up on the floor instead 
of in the chair; 

—teachers forgetting that 
they had promised not to give 
a test today; 

—dropping your entire 
stock of books on a teacher's 
foot; 

—getting locked in a rest

Open Forum: On 'Dr. Zhivago" 

Miss Barnes Perceptive 
In Pointing Out Norm 
Of Emotions Over Ethics 



By RAYMOND KIMBLE 

Mr. Hall, in last week's 
Open Forum, challenges ef- 
fectively Miss Barnes' conten- 
tion that Yuri Zhivago's sim- 
ultaneous love for two wom- 
en "can never exist." 

Let us accept his argument 
that a man can love two 
women at once. And this is 
indeed, as he says, the point 
upon which Miss Barnes* ar- 
gument logically rests. 
Dualism and Conflict 

However, Miss Barnes also 
points to an important dual- 
ism in Zhivago, namely that 
between his "raw, unchan- 
neled creativity that does as 
it pleases" and the fact that 
"genuine love sets limits, it 
is disciplined; it is respon- 
sible." 

The interesting fact about 
this dualism is not simply 
that it exists, but that the first 
alternative is presented as 
superior. Let us restate by 
saying that we have a con- 
flict between desire, i.e., the 
emotions, and self discipline, 



i.e., the ethical norm, with 
the former obviously pre- 
ferred. 

But should, in fact, the first 
alternative be preferred? 
Many people, and many Mill- 
saps students, probably think 
not. 

Cogent Point 

Mr. Hall again makes the 
cogent point that the artist's 
production must be accepted 
within its own moral context. 
But a circumstance attendant 
on this particular context is 
that it is one of a long se 
ries of American films which 
happen to glorify the physi- 
cal-emotional above all else. 

But the important point is 
the fact that when a ques- 
tionable philosophy, perhaps a 
false one, is presented, note 
should be taken and attention 
called so that it may be con- 
sidered rationally. 

Miss Barnes, in displaying 
the preference of emotions 
over ethics as a norm of ac- 
tion, has done this percep- 
tively.

symposium: CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS LOOM BEFORE 

MISSISSIPPI: WALKER OR EASTLAND? 



By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 



In the presidential election 
of 1964 this writer was a 
staunch supporter of Barry 
Goldwater for the Presidency 
of the United States. It was 
while participating in this 
campaign that I first heard 
Prentiss Walker speak. "My 
name is Prentiss Walker," he 
said. "I'm jest an ole chicken 
farmer from Mize, Mis-sippy, 
an' I sure do want yore vote." 
While my first reaction to his 
candidacy was one of amuse- 
ment, it quickly changed to 
shock when he was elected 
to the United States House of 
Representatives from the 
state of Mississippi. A friend 
of mine tells me that while 
Mr. Walker was in Washing- 
ton he earned the dubious 
honor of being the only Rep- 
resentative in the House who 
kept his office bookshelves 
stuffed with egg crates in- 
stead of law books. His record 
in Congress is safe from at- 
tack because, for all practical 
purposes, it doesn't exist. His 
only boast about his record is 

Library Begins 
Reclassification 

The next time you ask a li- 
brarian or library assistant 
where a book on biology is, 
don't be surprised when he 
says, "Look under *Q* for sci- 
ence." 

The library is changing the 
classification of books from 
the good oP Dewey Decimal 
System to the Library of Con- 
gress System. The L.C. Sys- 
tem has no correlation be- 
tween the classification letters 
and the type of book classi- 
fied, except, perhaps, "M** 
for music. Actually, when the 
reclassification is complete 
one will be able to find books 
much more quickly than was 
possible under the old system. 
6% Reclassified 

The library staff began the 
reclassification last May, and 
as of the end of September, 
had reclassified approximate- 
ly four thousand volumes or 
six percent. This is a rough 
estimate given by Mrs. Boeck- 
man and does not include pe- 
riodicals, which are being re- 
classified by Mrs. Trotter. 

Mrs. Boeckman said that 
about two hundred and fifty 
new volumes are catalogued 
each month. In order to make 
room for this expansion, there 
is an additional cataloguing 
room in the basement, con- 
verted from a storage room. 

Assistants Praised 

Mrs. Boeckman praised the 
student assistants, saying that 
they had been a tremendous 
help and had done most of the 
work. 

There is but one thing left 
to say: "Good Luck!" 



that it is 100 per cent conser- 
vative. His only claim to fame 
is that he tagged along be- 
hind Barry Goldwater's coat- 
tails and went into office in 
the wake of the most over- 
whelming vote ever given a 
presidential candidate by the 
state of Mississippi. 

Still clinging desperately to 
the coattails of a man who no 
longer leads the Republican 
Party, he now asks the people 
of Mississippi to elect him to 
the United States Senate— as 
a Republican. "Defeat LBJ 
the Walker Way," his bill- 
boards boom. Prentiss Walker 
could do about as much dam- 
age to Lyndon Johnson as a 
cherry bomb would do to a 
heavy cruiser. Yet he has the 
audacity to challenge a man 
who has given Mississippi 
over twenty years' service in 
the United States Senate. He 
challenges a man who, as 
chairman of the Senate Judi- 
ciary Committee is a force to 



be reckoned with in Washing- 
ton. He challenges a man who 
has, whether you agree with 
it or not, done his best to re- 
flect the will of his constitu- 
ents, both in his voting record 
and in his actions as a com- 
mittee chairman. 

Senator James O. Eastland 
has been accused of showing 
a lack of leadership in the 
Senate and in his home state. 
Perhaps the charge is justi- 
fied; perhaps not. He lacks 
the courage of J. W. Ful- 
bright; and the statesmanship 
of John Stennis. Neverthe- 
less, I feel that it can be said 
that he has done his best to 
act as he feels his constituen- 
cy would have him represent 
them in the Senate. He has 
maintained his close relation- 
ship wtih Lyndon Johnson, but 
always with an eye toward 
what that relationship can do 
to foster his ability to work 
toward what he feels are the 
best interests of his state. He 



has associated himself at 
home with those organizations 
and people which best reflect 
the attitudes of the majority 
of voters in Mississippi. Little 
as some of us may like it, 
these are the Citizens' Coun- 
cil and men like George Wal- 
lace. At least he has not been 
hypocritical about it. (I am 
told that after appointing a 
Negro to one of the military 
academies his opponent took 
credit for it among the Ne- 
groes of the state and pro- 
claimed it a mistake to the 
Ku Klux Klan). 

I would not be bold enough 
even to venture to say that 
James Eastland is one of the 
great leaders in our state's 
history, or even that he is 
one of the best leaders 
that we have today. But, let's 
face it, we in Mississippi have 
never been exactly overprod- 
uctive of outstanding leaders 
in government. This state has 
elected worse men than Sena- 



tor Eastland to Congress; 
Prentiss Walker's record 
speaks for itself in that re- 
spect. 

Dr. Gordon Henderson, for- 
mer chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Political Science here 
up until two years ago, said 
before he left that he wanted 
to come back to Mississippi 
to observe the 1966 Senatorial 
elections. He obviously felt 
that the Negro vote would be 
a vital factor in the cam- 
paign. Perhaps it will. B u t 
looking at both candidates, 
one might come to the con- 
clusion that, like the Negro 
voter in Georgia, the Negro 
voter in Mississippi would do 
just as well for himself on 
November 8th if he went 
fishing and forgot the whole 
thing. Personally, I'm catch- 
ing the train home to cast my 
vote for Senator James O. 
Eastland — unless Willie 
Jordon invites me to go fish- 
ing.

Harding College

Harding College is next on 
the list of rugged opponents 
on the schedule this year, 
Saturday afternoon at 2 
o'clock on Alumni Field. 

Harding beat Maryville last 
week, 21-10, upping their rec- 
ord to 4-2 for the season. Pre- 
viously they have beaten the 
University of Missouri (Roll- 
er), 35-13, Southern State, 32- 
7, and Quachita, 6-0. The only 
losses for Harding came at 
the hands of Arkansas A & M, 
19-7, and to Arkansas State 
Teachers College, 24-0. 
Kins-Sized 

Randolph - Macon was the 
biggest opponent the Majors 
had faced up until last week 
size-wise, but the bunch is 
even bigger. They have about 
eight or nine that tip the

scales at the 220-pound mark 
or better. On the offensive 
ends they are 225-pounds. 
Their backfield is not excep- 
tionally big but it is not ex- 
ceptionally small, either. 

Their fullback is a im- 
pounder the halfbacks weigh 
about 165, and the quarter- 
back is a 175-pound back. 

Harding has been running a 
slot-type offense and from this 
formation they run plenty of 
crossbuck and sissor plays 
through the middle of the line. 
But they also have throwing 
potential, making them a dou- 
ble threat. 

•In their loss to Arkansas 
A&M, Harding statistical- 
ly was a big winner, grind- 
ing out a huge total yardage 
mark, but three long pass 
plays killed the win. 

On defense, Harding will 
run a setup similar to the 
Millsaps defense, a 5-4— with 
options. 

TDs Nullified 

Against Randolph - Macon 
last week, the Majors had two 
long - long touchdowns called 
back. One was a screen pass 
to Edwin Massey from Dan- 
ny Neely. Massey took the 



ball from behind the line and 
raced 80 yards for pay dirt 
only to have the play nulli- 
fied. 

On the other call-back, Nee- 
ly tossed a 15-yarder to Troy 
Lee Jenkins who scampered 
65-yards extra for the TD and 
it was called back. The pen- 
alties were described by 
coach Harper Davis as 
"hometown flags/' Maybe the 
calls were a little close, but 
the benefit of the doubt went 
to the home team. 

After checking the film, Da- 
vis commented that this was 
by far not the best game 
played by the Majors this 
year, but even at that the 
Purple and White team 
played well enough to win, in 
Davis* opinion. 

Davis said that he was hop- 
ing his team would come with 
a Sewanee or Austin effort 
this week. It may take that 
to beat Harding, because they 
have a better set of running 
backs than Randolph-Macon 
does. Davis said that if the 
team would come up to the 
Sewanee-Austin level, there 
would be no problem in win- 
ning. 



Penalties Kill 
Millsaps Win 



ASHLAND, Va — The Mill- 
saps Majors and Randolph- 
Macon's Yellow Jackets bat- 
tled to a 7-7 tie on a brisk 
afternoon in Ashland, Virgin- 
ia last week. 

Two 80-yard passes for Mill- 
saps touchdowns in the sec- 
ond half were nullified by 
penalties while the Major de- 
fense was stubbornly holding 
back one Randolph - Macon 
thrust after another. 

The undefeated Yellow- 
Jackets saw their 4-0 perfect 
record marred by the dead- 
lock while the Majors now 
stand at 3-1-1 for the season. 
First Blood 

Millsaps drew first blood on 
their initial try from scrim- 
mage, driving 64-yards in six 
plays for a touchdown with 
.10:33 to go in the opening pe- 
riod. Halfback Edwin Massey 
scored the TD on a 23 yard 
pass from quarterback Dan- 
ny Neely. Tackle John Tur- 
cotte's PAT upped the count 
to 7-0. 

The drive was highlighted 



by a 15-yard bootleg run by 
Neely and a 26 yard aerial 
from Neely to end Ted Weller. 



The Yellow Jackets tied the 
score with 1:23 left in the half 
when halfback Hank Fein 
rammed the center of the line 
from three yards out follow- 
ing a 45-yard drive. Tommy 
Nance's PAT tied the score. 

Both teams missed a field 
goal in the second half which 
could have changed the out- 
come. The Jackets' Nance 
missing from 34-yards in the 
third quarter and the Major's 
Trucott barely missing from 
42-yards with only 7:46 to go 
in the game. 

The nationally recognized 
defense of the Yellow Jackets 
was superb but a tremendous 
defensive performance of 
their own kept the Majors in 
the game.

Lambda Chi's, Kappa Sig's 
Tied As Season Nears End 



Every week, the Majors 
seem to be faced with a big- 
ger and better football team 
and this week is no exception. 

Harding College's Bisons 
beat the Majors 14-0 last year 
in the fifth game of the 1965 
season. 

The Bisons rambled for 20 
first downs to 10 for the Ma- 
jors and outgained us on the 
ground 296-94-yards. In the 
passing department we fared 
a little better, outdistancing 
the Harding group 80-38 yards 
through the air. 

Strangely enough, the Ma- 
jors didn't have to punt, and 
Harding had to kick the ball 
five times for a meager 31.4 
average. 

They intercepted one of our 
passes last year and we didn't 
get one of their few aerials. 
We lost two fumbles in the 
contest and they didn't even 
bobble the ball. 

Size Difference 

The Majors aren't as big 
as Harding this year, but it 
can be safely said that the 
Majors can hit just as hard 
and that's exactly what it's 
gonna take to beat the Bisons. 
With a line that will probably 
average anywhere from 215 to 
225-pounds, hard hitting will 
have to be the by word in 
the line and extra effort will 
have to come from the mem- 
bers of the Major backfield. 

The Majors are now 3-1-1 
this year, having beat Se- 
wanee, Austin, and Southwest- 
ern, and lost to Livingston 



State and tieing Randolph-Ma- 
con last week. 

In a telephone interview 
with Coach Davis this week, 
he did not mention any se- 
rious injuries, so it is as- 
sumed that the Majors will 
be physically ready. 

Spirit 

Another one of those over- 
flow crowds (like the one at 
the Southwestern - homecom- 
ing game) would be a help. 
The cheerleaders and the 
newly organized band are all 
doing a great job in promot- 
ing school spirit, which has 
been on the rise since the be- 
ginning of the year. 

New Staffer 

The Purple & White sports 
staff now includes Chuck Al- 
ford who will be reporting the 
intra-mural sports from now 
on. The intra-murals have not 
been g e 1 1 i n g the publicity 
they deserve and with Chuck 
on the job that problem 
should be eliminated. 

We are still waiting for 
some industrious young lady 
to apply for the job of report- 
ing the girls intra-murals. It 
would be worth an hour's 
extra curricular credit and 
would be a service to the stu- 
dents of Millsaps.

The 1966 volleyball season 
is quickly coming to its end, 
and what an end. 

At the close of the first 
round the LXA's, KA's, and 
KS's were tied for first place 
with three and one records. 
During the round the Lamb- 
da Chi's defeated the KA's; 
the KA's then turned back 
the hard spiking Sigs; then 
to even things out, the Sigs 
stopped the Lambda Chi's. 
The KA-KS game saw the 
KA's win the first set behind 
the hard spikes of Tommy 
Davis and Billy Croswell. The 
Sigs were not to be denied 
the next set as they over- 
whelmed the KA's 21-12. But 
the KA's regained their poise 
and exceptionally good team- 
work in the third set and 
emerged with a very fine 
victory. 

That week was climaxed by 
one of the best volleyball 
games of the first round. The 
KS's edged out the LXA's 21- 
19, 19-21, and 21-18. Both 
teams hustled every second of 
each set and gave the specta- 
tors a great deal to yell 
about. However the tall men 
from Sigma were not to be 
denied as they rallied behind 
the tremendous spiking of Bill 
Lax and Jerry Sheldon. It was 
one of those nights for the

Lambdas as all their efforts 
were in vain as the loss put 
them in a three-way tie for 
first. 

Tie Broken 

The tie was soon broken as 
the second round got under 
way with the Lambda Chi's 
meeting the KA's. The KA's 
lead the first half of the game 
but couldn't stand up to the 
hard rush of the Lambda's. 
The Lambda's rallied to take 
and keep the lead but soon 
the KA's had amassed a 13-5 
lead and then they folded. 
The Lambda's rallied behind 
the fine spikes of Jerry Duck 
and David Powers to take the 
KA's 21-18. 



The last two weeks should 
prove to be very exciting with 
the KA's meeting the Sigs 
and the Sigs playing the

MSMersDiscttss 
Campus Codes 

By SUE BARNES 
Conscience on Campus, a 

book by Waldo Beach, was 
used as the central theme of 
Bill Gober's talk presented to 
the MSM recently. 

The book dealt with three 
areas of student morality — 
that of the intellect, the social 
whirl, and of romance. 

The author stated that the 
university or college is fre- 
quently analogous to an ob- 
stacle course on a playing 
field. Professors act as mild- 
mannered coaches and a di- 
ploma awaits each person at 
the exit gate. 

There exists the superficial 
stimulation of grades because 
excitement over course con- 



tent is all too often absent. 
Procrastination may choke 
out intellectual integrity. 
Areas of Morality 
Expounding on these three 
areas of morality, Mr. Gober, 
who is assistant pastor at Gal- 
loway Methodist Church, 
quoted Dr. Reinhold Neibuhr 
who states that life holds rea- 
son, unity, form, and mean- 
ing. 

Christian ethics represent 
neither legalism nor lawless- 
ness; recognizing this it is un- 
realistic to give our blanket 
approval or disapproval to a 
cause. Rev. Gober used as an 
illustration Greeks on a col- 
lege campus; they are neither 
a "cesspool of iniquity nor a 
paragon of brotherhood", he 
stated.

ality the guest speaker ex-

By DIANNE PATRIDGE 

George B. Pickett of Jack- 
son has been named national 
general c h a i r m a n f or the 
Ford Foundation challenge 
grant to Millsaps College. 

Serving as vice-chairman is 
James Boyd Campbell, also of 
Jackson. He is president 
of the Mississippi School Sup- 
ply Company. 

Pickett, an alumnus of Mill- 
saps, said, "Through the Ford 
Foundation's challenge grant 
Millsaps College has received 
national recognition as an out- 
standing private, liberal arts 
college providing top quality 
education."

Four-Night Run 



The campaign, largest ever 
undertaken by a Mississippi 
private institution, involves 
raising $3.75 million to match 
$1.5 million given by the Ford 
Foundation. This condition 
must be met by June 30, 1969. 

Pickett announced that the 
campaign will be launched by 
a four day convocation in 
February. The convocation is 
to feature nationally known 
personalities as speakers. 

Pickett has been in the in- 
surance business since leav- 
ing Millsaps in 1931. He at- 
tends Galloway Memorial 
Methodist Church, serves as 
a member of the boards of 
directors of the Jackson Boys' 
Club, the YMCA, Junior 
Achievement Program, Jack- 
son Country Club, and Citi-

Mississippi Voters Should Ask 



Who Can Do The Most? 



By 



RD 



Asst. Editor 



Mississippians will go to the polls 
Nov. 8 to elect a representative to the 
United States Senate. 

Once again the campaign topics have 
centered around segregation and LBJ. 
"Defeat LBJ the Walker Way" reads 
one slogan. When are we in Mississippi 
going to realize that such "causes" are 
as ridiculous as they are futile? 

No one is going to "defeat" the Presi- 
dent of the United States. Furthermore, 
for people to rally after such a slogan 
is indicative of the immaturity of such 
voters. 

What we as Mississippians should be 
concerned with is getting more industry 
into the State, thereby improving em- 
ployment and increasing state revenues, 
increasing (rather than decreasing) fed- 
eral funds to improve our schools, high- 
ways, and coastlands. In short, we should 
be more concerned with improving our 
state, rather than attempting to "defeat" 
someone or something. 

The question then becomes, "who 
can do the most for the state?" 

We in the South have been able to 
hold so much sway in the national con- 



gress because of one thing — seniority. 

Our congressmen have been able to 
hold their positions in Congress for long 
enough to gain vital experience in the 
inner-workings of Capitol Hill and long 
enough to get into powerful positions 
from which they can gain improvements 
for their respective states. 

In the 1964 presidential election many 
such congressmen were swept out of of- 
fice on the tide of sudden southern Re- 
publicanism. These men were replaced 
by young, inexperienced, and often un- 
qualified men, who have been unable to 
aid their states in any way. 

On Nov. 8 we will be faced with the 
choice between a man who has served 
our state for over twenty years and one 
who has yet to improve it in any way 
(chicken production excepted); between 
a man who is chairman of the powerful 
Senate Judiciary Committee and also 
chairman of the Senate Internal Securi- 
ty Subcommittee and one who, as the 
minority party low man, would have vir- 
tually no power whatsoever. 

We will, in short, be faced with a de- 
cision between Senator James O. East- 
land and Prentiss Walker. 

The question is: Who can do the most

extend an invitation to all per-

I understand she went into 
a state of shock and didn't 
come out of it until the paper 
came out Thursday— but she 
did a great job. 

Two other members of the

their indispensability for

Debaters Make 
Good Showing 



By DAVID FLEMING 

Millsaps* debate team 
emerged successfully from 
the Louisiana College Debate 
Tournament last weekend at 
Pineville, La. This marked 
the first collegiate competi- 
tion of the season for the 
squad. 

Both affirmative squads, 
varsity and novice division, 
compiled excellent 3-1 records 
in their debate bout. All four 
affirmative speakers were in- 
experienced in collegiate de- 
bating. 

In the varsity division Ron- 
nie Greer and Paul Jordan 
defeated Mississippi College 
along with two other foes. 

David Fleming and Clyde 
Lea, novice debators, had 
wins over Mississippi College, 
Mississippi State, and North- 
western Louisiana, while los- 
ing a disputed decision to 
LSU at Alexandria. 

Negative Team 

Comprising the negation 
were Mary Ann McDonald 
and Mike Moore in the var- 
sity group and Ted Lamar 
and Eric Hearon in the novice 
division. 

Mary Ann McDonald and 
Mike Moore, the only return- 
ing debators in the tourna- 
ment, led the team in speak- 



er points, amassing 101 and 93 
points respectively. Mary Ann 
tallied a perfect 30 points in 
her opening round, to place 
high in the tournament in to- 
tal speaker points. 

Two debators on the team 
rated first speaker honors in 
three out of four rounds, 
Mary Ann McDonald and 
Clyde Lea. 

The remainder of the pre 
Christmas schedule is as fol 
lows: Mississippi State Uni- 
versity (Nov. 4-5) at StarkviHe, 
Miss.; Louisiana Tech (Nov. 
11-12) at Huston, La.; Uni- 
versity of Georgia (Nov. 18-

By 1980, the United States alone will need 600 billion gallons of clean water every day. At 
best, assuming no further pollution, the nation will have a reliable daily supply of just 515 
billion gallons. The missing 85 billion gallons represent a challenge commensurate with the 
great scientific and technological explorations of this century. This is a challenge worthy of 
our society's total commitment. The future existence and well-being of millions of people 
in the United States and elsewhere depend upon our coming to grips with this challenge; 
for clean, fresh water, essential to all terrestrial life, is in imminent danger of depletion. 

SPEARHEADING THE CRUSADE 

The new Federal Water Pollution Control Administration has one of the most unique and 
all-encompassing missions ever granted a government organization. It is to attack the 
growing water pollution problem nationally, regionally, and locally at the same time, doing 
whatever must be done in these six basic ways: 

1/ AID TO COMMUNITIES— programs offering sanitary, civil, and industrial engineers the opportu- 
nity to plan, initiate, and review grants for waste treatment plants so urgently needed 
throughout the country. 

2/ ENFORCEMENT — because water pollution ignores political boundaries, experts in the field — 
bacteriologists, biologists, chemists, hydrologists, sanitary engineers, limnologists, 
toxicologists, and lawyers, too — are needed to identify pollutants, locate their 
sources, and importantly, work with officials at all jurisdictional levels and citizens' 
committees to promote adherence to predetermined water quality standards. 
3/RESEARCH — thirteen water laboratories will ultimately operate in critical areas around the nation, 
each dedicated to specific research tasks or water conditions. This gives sanitary 
engineers, chemists; biologists, bacteriologists, hydrologists, geologists, oceanog- 
raphers, limnologists, soil scientists, epidemiologists, and toxicologists the chance 
to attack the problem in their own area, in their particular specialty. 

Located three miles south of Ada, 
Oklahoma, the Robert S. Kerr 
Water Research Center will serve 
the States in the Arkansas-White* 
Red River Basin, the Colorado 
River Basin, and the Western Gulf 
of Mexico Basin. This Center will 
concentrate on curbing improper 
disposal of brine wastes . . . find- 
ing ways to prevent natural salt 
from entering fresh water courses 
. . . development of advanced 
waste treatment methods to per- 
mit re-use of water . . . avoiding 
surface recharge or underground 
injection of pollutants . . . and re- 
ducing harmful effects on water 
quality by minerals leached from 
soils by irrigation. 

4/ WATER BASIN IMPROVEMENT— comprehensive programs for each of the 9 major river basins, 
bringing the administrator, the planner, the economist, and the computer expert into 
the new science of water management . . , into the building of mathematical models 
and the use of the latest data collection and retrieval techniques. 

5/ ESTABLISHING WATER QUALITY STANDARDS— vital action to let municipalities, industries, and 
other water users understand their responsibilities. Scientific and water resource 
management teams well-versed in the intricacies of water pollution control and 
abatement will be needed in FWPCA offices in almost every State. 

6/ TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE — must ultimately be increased many times in order to cope with the 
future's new and unexpected water pollution problems ranging from fish kills to 
contaminated municipal water supplies from unknown pollutants. Great versatility 
on the part of FWPCA sanitary engineers, as well as others skilled in the pure and 
applied sciences, will be called upon to find adequate, immediate solutions to such 
critical problems. 

DRAMATIC GROWTH ALMOST INEVITABLE 

Over 700 career positions — many of them in engineering — are to be filled this first year; 
and this is just the beginning. What has taken decades to pollute will take decades to re- 
claim. During this period, there will be dramatic growth within the Administration itself, 
plus scentific, technological, and managerial "spin-off" developments of individual signifi- 
cance . . . i.e., processing and packaging of fish and aquatic vegetation for mass feeding, 
new insight into public health and immunology, commercial use of recovered wastes, 
conservation and economical re-use of existing water, and so many more that are beyond 
today's state of knowledge. 

INTERVIEWS ON CAMPUS THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1 

The FWPCA representative interviewing you will probably be a person with program 
responsibility, either an engineer qr a scientist; so feel free to ask detailed questions 
and express your particular career aspirations. He will be offering career positions 
starting at the GS-5 level ($5331 or $6387) and the GS-7 level ($6451 or $7729), with

photographer, ate steak sand- 
wiches. Randy Webb and 
Mike Allen thought about in- 
ternational relations. And a 
certain Purple and White 
editor kept screaming some- 
thing about those gorgeous 
little playhouses and toy cars 
below. 

Incidentally, that's me and 
now I'm going to switch to 
first person. 

Patchwork World 

The whole world looked like 
a patohwork of green felt 
lined at the edges wirth trees 
and shrubs to hide the ragged 
seams. One of the patchwork 
pieces in Richmond, Va. was 
the exact shape of Mississippi. 

Covering the Smokies and 
the Blue Ridge mountains was 
a luscious carpet of red, yel- 
low, green, magenta, and 
brown in a mad profusion of 
color. It really wasn't a car- 
pet; it was really a bunch of 
trees. 

All eleven of us made it to 
the game. The cheerleaders 
got to see 45 minutes of it; 
we saw 15. 

We also saw Ronald Good- 
bread, Larry Adams, Doug 
Green, Tommy and Rachel 
Fowlkes, Jim Gabbert, and 
scads of other Millsaps enthu- 
siasts. They sent their re- 
gards, and Ron and Lar- 
ry drove us back to the little 
Ashland airport during which 
time we were almost ren- 



dered extinct by some colored 
gentlemen who took offense at 
Ron's Mississippi tag. 

Political Implications 

Little did we guess the po- 
litical implications in our for- 
mer political editor's parting 
words as he surveyed the lit- 
tle Cessna 205 and said, "Well 
Chief (that's me), it was nice 
knowing you." 

About this time our pilot 
dashed up with the start- 
ling proclamation that we 
were destined to hear many 
more times before our craft 
resettled in Hawkins Field. 
"Guess whut! We can't go 
home!" 

It seems that a cold front 
had planted itself right in our 
path to the South. The other 
plane was flying on instru- 
ments but we weren't. So we 
parted directions. They went 
south and we headed north — 
to Washington, D.C. 



In The Potomac 

A few hours later we found 
ourselves sitting right in the 
middle of the Potomac (that's 
a restaurant in Georgetown, 
but more about that later). 

We reached the Potomac 
River in time to bid farewell 
to a big red sun snuggling be- 
neath a blanket of pale or- 
ange, yellow, and blue. To the 
east the reflection of the 
moon, like a playful yellow 
ghost, raced along the river 
in a vain attempt to keep 
pace with our plane. 

Night was fast approaching 
and the city lights gradually 
flickered on. Within seconds 
the whole area was trans- 
formed into a dazzling arena. 

Minutes later, after an aerial 
inspection of the Pentagon, our 
little Cessna 205 was zooming 
proudly up the runway at Na- 
tional Airport, the busiest air 
terminal in the world.

Symposium: // s Our Choice: Real Leaders Or More Chicken Farmers 




By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

Do you realize how long it 
has been since Mississippi has 
produced a great man? I 
mean a great man politically. 

Why is it that we never are 
able to come up with out- 
standing leadership when we 
need it most? Why is it that 
when most of us think of poli- 
tics in Mississippi we are ob- 
liged to think also of 
demagoguery, lies, corruption, 
and mediocrity? 

Why did we produce men 
like Bilbo and Barnett? Why 
haven't we produced any 
Richard Nixons or John Ken- 
nedys or Barry Gold waters? 

Would that be so impossi- 
ble? 

Are We Doomed? 

Could we ever do it? Will 
we ever do it? Are we doomed 
to a future of mediocrity— nay 
sub-mediocrity— in Mississippi 
politics? 

These are questions which 
constantly haunt me. And I 
hope, dear reader, that as cit- 
izens and future voters they 
bother you as well. 

Part of the problem, I feel, 
is a lack of knowledge on the 
part of voters of exactly what 
the issues are. Perhaps this 
is the product of our hundred- 
year obsession with race. 

Since the Civil War, Missis- 
sippi politicians have been 
elected and defeated time and 
time again on one single is- 
sue — race. So obsessed have 
we become with the question 
in the last few years, that 
other issues have been almost 
totally ignored. 



He who would be elected to 
office in Mississippi must 
first prove to the electorate 
that he is a staunch segre- 
gationist. Unfortunately, those 
who have been able to do this 
have not in the past been top 
notch men. Unfortunately, 
too, the voters of Mississippi 



have come to regard this is- 
sue as THE issue; all others 
are subordinated. 

Maybe part of this stems 
from the low educational at- 
tainment of many Mississip- 
pians. Many of the citizens of 
the state have refused in the 
past to vote for men of out- 
standing ability because they 
aren't able to identify with 
them. 



Country 

Many a man has been 
beaten because he refused to 
resort to the old "I was a 
farm boy and I know how to 
plow" routine so characteris- 
tic of Mississippi politicians. 
Many an outstanding man has 
been beaten because he re- 
fused to resort to emotional- 
ism on the stump. 

Hopefully as our system of 
secondary and higher educa- 
tion improves, this situation 
will improve, too. As our co- 
leges and universities attain 
a higher degree of quality, 
hopefully the men that they 
turn out will be of a higher 
caliber, also. 

And, even more important, 
hopefully the people who will 
be voting for candidates to 
public office will, as a result 
of their higher educational at- 
tainment, be more rational 
and responsible in their vot- 
ing habits. 

State Loses 
But even this is not enough. 
Mississippi needs more than 
anything else, I feel, to re- 
tain outstanding men within 
her borders and to somehow 
persuade these men to partic- 
ipate in political activity. If 
a man leaves this state for 
greener pastures in another 
section of the country after 
the state has sent him to 
school for sixteen years or so, 
obviously the state loses 
money on the whole deal. 

More significantly, it loses 
a potential leader — whether 
he lead by seeking public 
office or by being a "political 
activist" or simply by casting 
an intelligent vote. 

I feel that we must per- 
suade men of outstanding 
ability and talent not to avoid 
"getting involved" in politics. 
Must Remove Filth 

We must take the aura of 
filth from our state politics. 
We can only do this if we 
elect men of ability with a

genuine concern for all the 
state's people and all the 
state's problems. But if men 
of education and ability and 
concern do not run for public 
office if they refuse to live 
up to their public responsibil- 
ity by avoiding politics — we 
cannot elect them. 

Within our borders, I have 
no doubt, there live men of 
ability equal to almost any 
leader on the national level 
today. And there are, I have 
no doubt, men in our colleges 
and universities with leader- 



ship potential equivalent to 
that in any other state's col- 
leges and universities. 

Will They Retreat? 

The question is, will they 
be all to our state and nation 
that they could be? Or will 
they retreat into an eight 
thousand a year job and plen- 
ty of good old security? If 
they do, as they have in the 
past, Mississippi may very 
well continue to send chicken 
farmers to Congress and Ross 
Barnetts to the governor's 



mansion. 

If, on the other hand, Mis- 
sissippians will but live up to 
their civic responsibilities by 
becoming familiar with the 
real issues and by refusing 
to be afraid to seek public 
office, perhaps we will some- 
day produce men like those I 
have mentioned earlier. 

In reality, the choice is up 
to you and me. You see, in a 
shorter time than we realize 
WE will be the voters— and 
the candidates. 



WASHINGTON ADVENTURE 



(Continued on page 4) 
We all six unboarded and 
watched in awe and exhilera- 
tion as Boeing 707's and 
727's thundered off into the 
night blinking their red and 
purple lights. 

Hunger Pains 
Our awe and exhileration 
soon turned to hunger pains. 
Shelterless, financially un- 
equipped and very apt to fail 
an impending international 
relations test — that was our 
predicament. Victims we 
were of a merciless cold 
front! 

It was too great to be true! 

Somehow we ended up in the 
Washington Hotel. From there 
we proceeded to Georgetown, 
five minutes north of Wash- 
ington. That's where the col- 
lege kids head on the week- 
end, or as the Washingtonians 
put it, -Georgetown's the 
place!" 

It's also where the kids 
from a nearby reformatory 
head on the weekends. I 
met three of them in the rest- 
room of the Potomac restau- 
rant. One of the g i r 1 s had 
long, stratty, reddish - brown 
hair. Her clothing was ob- 
viously the result of a sloppy 
attempt to ape the 5 mod look, 
so popular around Wash- 
ington. 

Upon learning that I was 



came very excited and intro- 
duced me to her blonde friend 
who had stolen a Jackson 
school bus while visiting here 
with her aunt. 

The first girl, piously puff- 
ing on her thick green cigar, 
said, "I never did anything 
like that. I just started rum- 
bles (gang wars) in my neigh- 



(The cheerleaders all this 
time were snugly tucked un- 
der Ma's wing in a Chatta- 
nogga motel watching Love 
Song of The Amazon Women, 
or something like that, on 
TV.)

and the weather was still play- 
ing havoc with our aca- 
demic careers. 

But we shouldered our fate 
like soldiers and proceeded to 
invade the streets of Wash- 
ington, D.C. And what a day! 
—the Smithsonian Institute, 
the White House, Treasury 
Building, Commerce Building, 
Washington Monument, Ellip- 
se Park, the Capitol, quaint 
gift shops and sidewalk cafes 
— the places we couldn't visit 
we photographed endlessly. 

One highlight of the whole 
trip was the delightfully 
cynical taxi-driver who took 
us on a brief jaunt to Mary- 
land Sunday night. 

At one point Mims, the 
group jester, remarked with 
feigned awe, "They're pretty 
big on government in this 
town, aren't they?" The 
driver replied, "Government 
is one of our biggest com- 
modities" and proceeded to 
point out* the controversial 
Sam Rayburn Building. 

"They built a huge swim- 
ming pool in there for the 
senators and a big, beautiful 
diving board but the senators 
can't dive off it because the 
ceiling is too low and they'd 
bounce up and hit their 
heads," he explained. 
Resigned Cynicism 

The driver expressed re- 
signed cynicism flavored with 
dry humor in his attitude to- 
ward the government. 

He said, "We have a war in 
Viet Nam, a war on poverty, 
a war on cement mixers — 
everything's a war here." 
•'About wore out, aren't you," 
Mims sympathized with a 
weak pun that proved very 
humorous at the time. 

Along Pennsylvania Ave. 
the taxi driver pointed to 
some s c r a g g 1 y, scrawny 
trees and shrubs and in- 
formed us that they were part 
of Lady Bird's beautification 
project. Now that they've 
planted all those trees and 
the trees won't live, they 
want to cover up their mis- 



take with cement and let the 
express busses run through 
there. Our friend explained 
that Lady Bird had urged the 
citizens to carry buckets of 
water to Pennsylvania Ave. 
and water the trees but the 
citizens obviously found bet- 
ter pasttimes— like watching 
the beautification project on 
F Street. 

No Free Samples 

Upon passing the Printing 
and Engraving Building some- 
one posed the possibility of 
our securing some free sam- 
ples to alleviate a dire finan- 
cial situation. The driver said, 
"No free samples for citizens. 
If you were turbanned poten- 
tates from some Arab nation 
threatening to go Communist, 
then they'd hand you 100 mil- 
lion dollars or so. 

We began toying with 
the idea of draping our 
heads with towels and threat- 
ening to go Communist. But 
we wisely concluded that our 
chances for success were slim 
with turbans marked "Wash- 
ington Hotel" across the 
front. 

Washington Beautiful 

Washington, in spite of its 
political paradoxes, is a great 
place — beautiful beyond de- 
scription in the fall. The peo- 
ple we encountered were far 
more warm and good-natured 
than reputed to be. 

We actually hated to leave 
Monday afternoon. 

We also hated getting stuck 
in Danville, Va. for two more 
nights. 

From here on in the trip 
was relatively uneventful. In 
Danville we got to stand on 
the porch of our motel and 
watch the blue neon sign flash 
the words 4 •'Dan River Fab- 
rics" across the Dan River. 

For diversity we could walk 
to the elevator and read the 
cafeteria menu. 

Then Wednesday morning 
the big news arrived. "Guess 
whut! We can go home!" 
Mims announced as he somer- 
saulted across the room.

MILLSAPS WIN STREAK ENDED 
AS HARDING PULLS MILD UPSET 



Harding College's big 
Bisons scored 21 points in the 
first quarter against a listless 
Millsaps Major team and 
went on to claim a 28-8 vic- 
tory on the Millsaps Alumni 
Field Saturday. 

Speedy halfback Harry Lisle 
received the opening kickoff 
on the four yard line and 
astounded the crowd by 
sprinting 96-yards for a touch- 
down. James Street booted 
the extra point and Harding 
held a 7-0 lead with the game 
barely seconds alive. 

Lisle was devistating on re- 
turns all day. He returned two 
kickoffs, one for the touch- 
down and the other for 27 
yards, and two punt returns, 
one for a 61-yard touchdown 
later in the first period, and 
another for 22 yards. 

Glass Scores 

Halfback Ken Glass scored 
one of the first quarter TDs 
for Harding on a 22-yard gal- 
lop. Glass was the leading 
rusher for the Bisons, picking 
up 82 yards in seven carries. 

Jim Howard, an all-Arkan- 



sas Collegiate Conference full- 
back selection last season * 
gained 76-yards on eight car- 
ries and Lisle gained 56 yards 
on 11 totes. Howard picked 
up nearly 100-yards per game 
last season. 

The Majors made no serious 
scoring threats in the initial 
half, but came back in the 
second with an outstanding 
defensive effort and an im- 
proved offensive showing. 
Majors Tally 

On the second possession 
for Millsaps in the second 
half, the Majors scored on a 
10-yard run by shifty quar- 
terback Danny Neely. The 
drive started on the Harding 
24 yard line when defensive 
halfback Jerry Huskey inter- 
cepted a Bison pass. 

Troy Lee Jenkins was the 
game's leading ground gainer 
with 110 yards in 21 carries, 
fullback Timmy Millis was 
good for 39 yards in 12 hits 
at the Harding line, while Ed- 
win Massey scraped together 
34 yards on eight stabs.

The Lambda Chi's clinched 
a tie for the volleyball cham- 
pionship with a fine victory 
over the Kappa Sigs. The 
Lambda Chi's came on strong 
to rout the Sigs in the first 
game 21-7. The LXA's took an 
early 10-5 lead and moved 
quickly behind the spikes of 
Jerry Duck and David Pow- 
ers to end the game in fine 
form 21-7. But the next game 
was a complete reversal of 
the first. 

The Sigs changed their line- 
up and completely dominated 
the second game. Bill Lax, 
behind the fine sets of George 
Williamson, lead the Sigs to 
a 21-4 romp over the LXA's. 
With the championship riding 
on the next game the stands 
were in an uproar. 

But the Lambda Chi's were 
not to be denied the third 
game as they took the open- 
ing serve and jumped into an 
early lead that was not to be 
lost. Ricky Fortenberry and 
Larry Goodpaster combined 
to block most of the hard 
spikes the Sigs delivered thus 
halting the Sigma's potent of- 
fense. But the key to the vic- 
tory was the superb efforts 
of Jerry Duck, who's spikes 
riddled the Sigs tight defense. 
Sigs Rally 
In the closing moments the 
Sigs rallied to within three 
prints 17-14, but the Lambda 
quickly closed the door 
on the Sigs by scoring four 
fast points to win the game

was to be played last Tuesday

KA's Surge 

In last weeks action the sec- 
ond place KA's stopped the 
Sigs in two straight games 21- 
11 and 22-20. The first game 
was fast as the KA's swept to 
a 12-5 lead behind the fine 
play of Tommy Davis, and 
soon ended the game on a 
six point surge 21-11. 

The second game was not 
as one sided as the Sigs took 
a quick 6-1 lead. The KA's 
then tied it up 7-7. The KA's 
then took the lead 17-13, only 
to see the Sigs jump ahead 
20-17. 

But the KA's came from be-

Majors Go Through 
Heavy Contact Drills 



The Millsaps Majors fly to 
Maryville, Tenn. this week in 
hopes of turning in the first 
winning season posted by a 
Millsaps team since 1957 and 
the first under coach Harper 
Davis since he began build- 
ing his stepped-up football 
program three years ago. 

Maryville is now 2-4 this 
year and sport a fine passing 
attack. The Maryville team 
throws anywhere from 30 to 
40 times each game and in 
the words of Davis they will 
"probably fill the air with 
passes." 

Maryville runs from an I 
formation with a split end 
on one side and a slotback on 
the other. Their quarterback 
likes to throw a sprint-out 
pass and with as much prac- 
tice as he's had this season, he 
ought to be pretty good at it. 
The Maryville offense is simi- 
lar to Southwestern's offense. 

The Majors are now 3-2-1 
for the year and with two 
more games on the schedule, 
there is s a better than average 
chance of claiming a winning 
season. 

The Majors were put 
through a rugged practice 
Monday after the let down 



against Harding. Davis said 
that the Majors had not 
knocked since before the 
Austin game and that prob- 
ably was the key to the loss. 

"When you haven't hit for 
a long while, you lose your 
timing," said Davis, "and you 
forget what it feels like to hit 
somebody." 

Davis said that if his team 
could have played as well in 
the first half as they did in 
the second against Harding, 
the game could have been an 
interesting one. 

Davis said that much con- 
tact work was in store for the 
Majors this week and they 
should be ready for Mary- 
ville. 

Davis singled out two fresh- 
men halfbacks, Mike David- 
son and Mike Coker, as play- 
ing exceptional games against 
Harding. He said that they 
made about 60 per cent of the 
tackles between them and its 
good that they did but its bad 
that the line didn't get them 
before Mike and Mike had a 
chance to stick the Bisons. 

Davidson intercepted a pass 
against the Bisons and Jerry 
Huskey, another defensive 
secondary

Major Victory Over 
Maryville Clinches 
Vintage Grid Season 



By Harry Shattuck 

MARYVILLE, Tenn. — The 
Millsaps Majors pulled a 
storybook finish out of thin 
air Saturday night scoring two 
touchdowns in the last six 
minutes for a dramatic 21-17 
victory over Maryville's Scots 
on a cold rainy evening here. 

Quarterback Danny Neely 
passed seven yards, halfback 
Edwin Massey with 1:01 to go 
to hand Coach Harper's Da- 
vis and the Major squad the 
schools first winning season 
in ten years. 

The victory did not come 
easy this time around — the 
Majors actually scored twice 
in the last ninety seconds but 
found one TD nullified by a 
penalty. Still another Millsaps 
touchdown had been called 
back earlier in the game. 
Clutch Running 
Clutch running by Massey, 
the passing of Neely, and a 
key fourth quarter intercep- 
tion by freshman Mike Coker 
were instrumental in the last 
gasp of Millsap's comeback 
which found the Majors over- 
coming a 17-7 Maryville lead. 

Head Coach Davis termed 
his team's work the "m o s t 
courageous effort I've seen in 
my 26 years of football, the 
only word I can use is fan- 
tastic." 

The Majors played without 
the services' of leading rusher 
Troy Lee Jenkins who was in- 
jured in the opening moments. 
Starters Jerry Husky, senior 
halfback, and Leon Bailey, 
end, also missed Satur- 



Bill Milton saw limited ac- 
tion. 

The first half ended with 
Millsaps holding a 7-3 advan- 
tage after a steady rain had 
handicapped both team's ef- 
forts. 

Jim Cannon puts the Scots 
briefly in the opening period, 
capping 50-yard drive with a 
27 yard field goal six minutes 
into the game. 

The Majors went ahead, 
however, with 2:50 left in 
the half when Neely passes 
eight yards to Massey for a 
TD after a 68 yard drive. 
Halfback Pat Amos added the 
PAT. 

The tempo picked up when 
the rain died in the second 
half as the Scots, behind the 
passing of freshman quar- 
terback Jimmy Sullivan ral- 
lied for two touchdowns. 
Penalties Hurt 

Aided by two 15-yard penal- 
ties the Scots took a 10-7 ad- 
vantage with 3:26 left in the 
third quarter when fullback 
Lynn Dodez scored from one 
yard out after a 66-yard drive. 
Cannon kicked the point. 

Maryville increased their 
lead with 9:43 left in the 
game when Sullivan threw 26- 
yard s to end John McLaugh- 
lin for the score. Cannon 
again made the PAT comple- 
tion. 

The Majors immediately 
took over, however, and Co- 
ker ran back the Maryville 
kickoff 32 yards to the Mill- 
saps 45. Neely's passes ate up 
most of the passes and a sev-

Participation 
Urged In High 
School Day 

By SUSAN DACUS 

High School Day this year 
will be held at Millsaps Nov. 
19, with the freshman class in 
charge of the day's activities. 

The freshman class, with 
the help of Dean Hardin, has 
prepared a schedule which 
includes campus tours, schol- 
arship tests, a talent show, 
and an all-campus dance. 

All freshmen wishing to 
participate in any way should 
contact either the freshman 
class officers or Dean Hardin. 
The officers are Mike Coker, 
Barry Plunkett, and Betty 
Toon. 

Everyone is being urged to 
invite a high school senior to 
spend the day and get better 
acquainted with Millsaps Col- 
lege. If there is anyone to 
whom you wish an invitation 
to be sent, contact one of the 
freshman class officers.

Sam Rush, a junior from 
Meridian, has been named 
Student General Chairman for 
the Ford Foundation chal- 
lenge grant campaign. Sam's 
appointment was suggested 
by the Student Executive 
Board and approved by the 
Student Senate. He will lead 
Millsaps students in raising 
$28,000 $30,000. 

Sam, who serves as a Stu- 
dent Senator - at - Large, is 
president of Circle K and 
vice president of Theta Nu 
Sigma, a natural science hon- 
orary. A chemistry major, he 
is also a newly chosen mem- 
ber of Chi Chi Chi. a chemis- 
try honor society. He partici- 
pates actively in Young 
Democrats and Baptist Stu- 
dent Union, and is a Dean's 
List student. 

"Millsaps has been hon- 
ored by receiving the chal- 
lenge grant and I feel each 
student should be able to aid 
in reaching our goal. I am 
pleased to have the oppor- 
tunity to help push the cam- 
paign forward, but everyone 
must do his share for us to 
collect $28,000," Sam said. 
Special Gifts Chairman 
Working as special gilts 
chairman will be Denny 
Smith; Bill Fields will be in 
charge of publicity and ar- 
rangements. Canvass Chair- 
man for the campaign is Joe 
Bailey. 

Class leaders will include 
Dan McKee, senior, Alec 
Valentine, junior, Ronnie 
r»"^r. sophomore, and Mike 
Coker, freshman. 



This entire steering com- 
mittee met Monday night at 8 
to organize and finalize plans 
for the campaign. The pro- 
gram will be presented to the 
student body in a forthcom- 
ing assembly. A vote will then 
be taken on whether or not 
the student body as a whole 
wishes to undertake such a 
drive. 

If such a vote is successful, 
each class will then hold 
meetings to vote on their sep- 
arate portions of the program. 
The four class chairmen, who 
are supervised by the Canvass 
Chairman, will appoint three 
divisional leaders from each 
year. The divisional leaders 
will have teams of five mem- 
bers each. These people will 
direct the work of the classes. 
Funds From Students 

The ^pcCia ..lair- 
man's duty will be to secure 
funds from the students who 
are capable of giving more 
than that asked to reach the 
goal. Ideally, every student is 
asked to donate a dollar' a 
month for thirty months. 

Bill Fields, as Publicity and 
Arrangements Chairman, will 
not only handle publicity for 
the campaign, but will stimu- 
late competition between 
classes, fraternities, sorori- 
ties, and other organizations. 

Sometime in the near 
future, each Millsaps student 
will be asked to fill out a 
pledge card stating how much 
he will give each month. Al- 
though the cards aren't bind- 
ing, everyone is urged to 
make as close an estimate as 
possible.

Opportunity Knocks: Let's Go! 



Guest Editorial 
By RUSSELL INGRAM 

"Yesterday, all my troubles 
seemed so far away, 

I need a place to hide away. 

Oh! I believe in yesterday. " 

These few lines from a great song of 
yesteryear present a problem which I 
am going to comment on. 

It has been said that man learns from 
the mistakes he has made in the 
past. If this is true, all of us have a great 
deal to learn, not only from our mis- 
takes but from those who have gone be- 
fore us. 

Throughout the years the Millsaps 
faculty and administration has placed 
strong emphasis on the molding of a 
wellrounded student. This stress for 
excellence, not only intellectually, but 
physically and spiritually as well has 
produced many outstanding persons. 

I am inclined, however, to believe that 
there has not been enough reaction in 
the students themselves to achieve this 
goal. It may be because we are in the 
carefree years of our lives or that we 
just do not care if we achieve excellence, 
but the situation needs to be changed. 

Never before have we been presented 
with such an opportunity to change this 
situation. With High School Day only 
two weekends away, it is our duty and 
n onsibility to write home and inform 



our hometown high school buddies about 
Millsaps College. The purpose of this 
would be to encourage the highest cali- 
ber student to attend Millsaps. 

By showing what Millsaps has to offer 
and the opportunities presented we can 
strengthen the image of the college. This 
in turn, will assure that next year's 
Freshmen will equal or excel this 
year's. 

Another opportunity open to us, the 
students, is that of the student fund rais- 
ing campaign. In the next three years, 
Millsaps has to raise 3.75 million dollars 
to meet the Ford Foundation challenge 
grant. 

We students can help accomplish this 
feat by pledging and giving not only our 
money but time to this endeavor. Be- 
sides donating money, we can do a great 
deal by influencing our parents and 
alumni to give donations. 

If we maintain and strengthen the 
ideals of the past, and we are able to 
meet the financial challenge, Millsaps 
will grow academically and physically. 

The problems are before us. It is up 
to us to meet and conquer them. The 
faculty and administration are doing 
all they can: the rest is left up to the 
students. The question is whether we are 
mature enough to sing: 

'•Come tomorrow will I be older 
Come tomorrow will I be bolder 
Come tomorrow will I be 
Wiser than today?" 



Why Millsaps? It's Greek To Me 



Guest Editorial 
By BILL FIELDS 

What are the attributes that make 
Millsaps the college with the reputation 
and standing that it enjoys? 

Ask the average person this question 
and you will get such answers as aca- 
demic excellence, limited enrollment, 
good administration, quality of faculty, 
etc. I will heartily concur that each of 
the above does play an integral part of 
making Millsaps the great school that it 
is. 

But, on the other hand, I find that one 
of the integral components of this school 
is often ignored — the fraternity and so- 
rority system. 

The Greeks on this campus are such 
an integral part of the school that they 
are usually overlooked by the admin- 
istration when they could be one of the 
major selling points to prospective stu- 
dents. 

Let us examine some of the advan- 
tages that social organizations offer to 
the students at Millsaps: 

1. Better chance of academic ex- 
cellence. 

Statistics prove that a member of a 
social organization has a better chance 
to graduate than a non-member. Latest 
statistics prove that three out of four 
Greeks earn degrees, where only one out 
of two non-members finish their educa- 
tion. 

At Millsaps, the scholastic average of 
a Greek is way above the all - student 
average, and the Greek system encour- 
ages it to stay high through means of di- 
rect competition. 

2. The Greek system promotes the well 
rounded person. 

An integral part of the Greek system is 
the social functions that it sponsors. 

Can you imagine what this campus 
would be like without some sort of or- 
ganized social functions? If you can't, 
just think of the other colleges in the 
Jackson area that don't have a Greek 
system and you will begin to get an idea. 

This college does not provide any reg- 
ular organized social functions for its^j 
students. The burden falls on the Greek 



system. 

Yet in the bulletins the college sends 
out it says that membership in a social 
organization is not necessary to be a 
well rounded student. 

Necessary, no more that two arms 
and two legs are necessary to be a suc- 
cess in life, but it sure makes it a lot 
easier. 

The Greek system promotes pride in 
both the school and its group and it shows 
people how to get along and work to- 
gether for a common purpose. It teaches 
concern for others and gives a person a 
goal to shoot for outside one's self. 

The Greeks stress personal excellence 
and by this act you also are working for 
the betterment of something outside your 
own interest. 

A social organization can give purpose 
to those people, when for a while, they 
don't really give a damn about this 
school. 

In stating the case for social organi- 
zations I do not, in any way, mean to be- 
little those who choose to remain inde- 
pendents. I respect them for their right 
not to join. The case I make is that there 
are some advantages to being a Greek 
that an independent does not have, and 
these can be used to sell Millsaps. 

Also, I do not say that the Greek sys- 
tem is perfect. In many cases there are 
things that the Greeks could do but don't. 

A chance is here, now, to show the 
school what we, the Greeks at Millsaps, 
can do in the fund-raising campaign for 
the Ford Grant. 

Get up, groups and show the adminis- 
tration how much we can help them, and 
this is one good direct way we can do it. 

Administration, if there is anything we 
can do — ask us. 

Use us to help sell this College — al- 
though I think you would be surprised 
at how much we do on our own. You fall 
flat on your faces when you do not pro- 
mote one of the best selling points you 
have. 

Promote us and you will find that there 
are going to be a lot of future students 
who answer, "Why did I come to Mill- 
saps?" It's Greek to me.

MATTERS 

MARIE SMITH 
Editor 




'Oliver!' was a very 
thought-provoking play. Some 
plays you can watch all the 
way through and remain rel- 
atively detached. But now 
and then one hits you full 
force and you can't seem to 
stop thinking about it. 

Maybe it was the song Oli- 
ver sang, "Where Is Love?" 
—the implications were tre- 
mendous. For some of us it 
was an indictment. 

Where is love? Was it love 
we felt for Oliver as we suf- 
fered with him through his 
plight? 

But the Olivers off-stage are 
the ones that keep haunting. 
There are still plenty of them 
around— in Grenada for exam- 
ple. 

Can't help wondering if any 
of the Grenada adults who 
swung the c h a i n s and axe 
handles at children a few 
months back were in the audi- 



ence last week. 

Wonder what they thought 
of Oliver. Maybe they loved 
him. Maybe it was easy. He 
was white. 



Policy On Letters 

In regard to letters to the 
editor, the usual policy is to 
print them verbatim. But 
since the Purple and White 
must be sent through the 
mail, it is necessary to limit 
the former Political Editor's 
letter to a paraphrase (inci- 
dentally, that's Ronald Good- 
bread). 

Ron sent a hearty commen- 
dation to Mary Jane Marshall 
for the fine job she did on the 
Oct. 27 issue of the P&W, add- 
ing, "Do you think that a 
commendation from the Old 
Crank stiU swings any weight 
around there?" 

And that's all we can print. 



Chapel Speaker 
Obscure, Shocking 

Dear Editor: 

Dr. LaBarre spoke in 
chapel last Thursday on the 
subject "Religion, 
Rorschachs, and Tranquiliz- 
ers." The main point of Dr. 
LaBarre's speech was above 
me and I actually listened in- 
stead of doing my French. 

The word that best ex- 
presses my feelings toward 
Dr. LaBarre's speech is 
pure; I'm not believing he 
said that shock. 

•I kept waiting to hear about 
religion — not much religion; 
tranquilizers— none ; although 
some of the students looked 
as if they could use some. 
And rorschacks, I never knew 
they were really only ink- 



Somehow, the whole speech 
seemed to lean toward the 
subject of anthropology. Until 
Dr. LaBarre said that his 



speech was not anti-white, I 
hadn't thought of it as being 
anti-anything. Only then did 
deep dark thoughts begin to 
enter my open-to-any-sugges- 
tion-type-mind. 

But anyway, what's so aw- 
ful about having thin lips or 
brown eyes? I believe that it 
was the tone of voice that he 
used while putting the 
Caucasion race at the bottom 
of the list that shocked me. 

The speech was interesting, 
hardly anyone I talked to 
slept through it, but they too 
just didn't believe he was say- 
ing what he was. 

It seemed to me that the 
specialized features he talked 
about were pretty evenly dis- 
tributed among the three 
races. 

But besides, who really 
cared? 

You can still pull a trigger 
even if you don't have hair 
between your knuckles. 

Any comments?

Men beware— this is Nation- 
al Draft Week. 40,000 Dentists 
will be inducted into the army 
to form a Drill Team! 
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: 
November 10, 1161, Rhooms, 
France. ... Sir Henri de 
Laubans-Thneep makes h i s 
suit of armor out of cancelled 
postage stamps, thus creating 
the first coat of mail. 

Being new on campus, I 
hope to make lots of friends. 
I did have a friend— -once. He 
was a pretty good guy. We 
roomed together my first 
year at college. Durd Flush- 
inglunger was his name and 
he was a Sophomore. (I was 
but a lowly Freshman at the 
time.) I can still remember 
that first night in our dorm 
room — we were sitting 
around, trying to decide on 
what to do for an evening of 
entertainment. I said, "I have 
an idea." It was then that 
Durd, in his own nasty man- 
ner, looked over at me and 
blandly commented, "Begin- 
ners luck!" 

The Durd, as most everyone 
called him, wasn't much of a 
sportsman. As a matter of 
fact, most of his time was 
spent with the rest of us 
around the card table. He had 
a very soft, gentle, delicate 
touch with the cards. We 
found out that this touch had 
been learned when he was 
working the night shift at a 
dairy farm. They had to milk 
the cows without waking them 
up. (Good old Flash!) 

Ever since the beginning of 
time, people have tried to out- 
do each other. They have 
even gone so far as to try to 
accomplish something nobody 
ever accomplished or to do all 
kinds of odd things to set new 
records. Old Durd was no ex- 
ception. He now holds the 
World Tea - Drinking 
Championship! He drank 62 
cups of tea in 30 m i n u t e s. 
(One of you Freshmen ought 
to try to top that!!) 

I haven't seen old Durd 
since that last night in the 
dorm. We were all sitting 
around (as usual) playing 
cards and we caught him 
dealing off the bottom of the 
deck. (Good old Lefty!) 

Speaking of sports, there 
are many that you, as stu- 
dents, can participate in on 
campus. There's archery, ten- 
nis, golf, football, or if 
you are not quite the athletic 
type, you can run down to the 
grill and get in on the BINGO 
game. Anytime, day or night 
—75 ... 98 ... 37 ... 007. 

I did run across a sad 
story recently ... I was in 
the grill the other night and 
J. W. came in and asked the 
lady behind the counter for a 
bowl of Pepsi. She told him 
that they only had Pepsi in 
cans and bottles and that it 
didn't come in bowls. Well, 



after much insistence, J. W. 
finally managed to get the 
lady to pour a bottle of Pepsi 
into a bowl for him. The poor 
boy then reached into his 
side pocket and pulled a dead 
parakeet out and placing the 
bird in the bowl of Pepsi be- 
gan to sing. . . ."Come Alive,

Produced 

If someone happens to stick 
a big camera in your face 
some day soon, don't make 
the mistake that one girl did 
and stick out your tongue at 
it. 

The cameras are for real. 

Two 17 minute films of Mill- 
saps College life are now be- 
ing produced by the Protes- 
tant Radio and TV Center out 
of Atlanta, Ga. 

College Coordinating 

College personnel are coor- 
dinating the films to be used 
in connection with the Ford 
Foundation challenge grant 
drive and for student re- 
cruiting. 

Preliminary filming was 
done during Millsaps' Home- 
coming in October. The cam- 
eramen returned Tuesday to 
complete the shooting. 

Both films should be ready 
for use by mid-April or May. 
Fund raising Film 

The film to be used in the 
fund-raising stresses the need 
for books, classes and other 
new facilities. It will center 
around a seminar in which 
students will discuss the 
aspects that make Millsaps a 
good college. 

The other film, to be used 
in student recruitment, will 
emphasize student campus 
life itself. 



November is the month for

PHone 362-7240 — 



By MARIE SMITH 

"Orthodox Jews are the 
hardest people in the world to 
convert. Once one accepts 
Christ, a mock burial is held 
for him." 

This was more than a de- 
tached observation. 

The old man had alienated 
himself from his own family. 
His name was Epstein, a con- 
verted Jew. 

His sister's parting words 
many years ago were "Get 
out of my house, you fanatic, 
and don't let me see your face 
around here again or IH call 
the police!" 

"And that was before the 
beard and the long hair," the 
old man added with no trace 
of malice. 

A Highway Minister 

Mr. Epstein called himself 
a highway minister. "Life is 
no bed of roses, but the peace 
I feel inside is too wonderful 
to describe. No one could un- 
derstand without experiencing 
it," he said. 

"Sometimes I get spat 
upon, physically thrown off 
campuses, or placed in jail 
for vagrancy. But I don't 
mind because God takes care 
of me," he added. 

Mr. Epstein voiced his tes- 
timony to an ever - growing 
crowd of students in a corner 
of the Millsaps grill several 
weeks ago. He had wandered 
on campus around noon. 

His dirty, ragged clothing 
drooped from a thin, under- 
nourished frame. A worn, 
dirt - caked New Testament 
and picture of Christ were 
clutched under his left arm. 
The piercing blue eyes 
seemed strangely out of place 
on his weather - worn face 
framed in a scraggly beard 
and long matted hair. 

One Question 

Each time a new person ap- 
proached, the old man's eyes 
lit up. To each one he said, 
"I have but one question to 
ask you, chap. Do you believe 
in Jesus Christ and accept 
him as your savior?" 

Most students said yes; a 
few said no. 

His "audience" was able to 
be amused at first — even to 
scoff a little. But the old 
man's intense conviction 
transformed the mood. 

No one laughed when he 
stood up in the grill and asked 
a blessing on the food which 
some students had bought 
him. His voice was almost 
drowned out by the juke box 
but everyone heard the first 
part— something about keep- 
ing these young people from 



the evils of smoking and 
drinking. 

Paradoxical 

How paradoxical that an 
old weather-beaten man, an 
admitted fanatic, could stand 
among a g r o u p of students 
with such a statement and not 
be mocked! A more sophisti- 
cated preacher would stand 
the chance of being booed 
off campus for the statements 
Mr. Epstein made. 

He had tried to persuade 
several persons to put out 
their cigarettes while he 
talked to them about God. 
"The Devil's making you 
smoke it, son, and you don't 
need it," he urged with a 
combination of persistence 
and humility. 

When asked if such empha- 
sis on abstention wasn't mere 
legalism rather than Christi- 
anity, the old man replied, 
"First you have to be clean 
inside, chap. Then you can 
accomplish much more for 
Christ. And I know what I'm 
talking about. I used to drink 
and smoke and gamble and 
take part in all of the things 
of the world." 

22 Years Ago 

He proceeded to explain 
how he had been converted 
to Christianity 22 years ago 
by two missionary girls in 
Cleveland, Ohio. He had driv- 
en a taxi in Miami, Fla. for a 
brief time before becoming 
a highway minister. 

When asked why he is do- 
ing this kind of work the 
old gentleman replied, "We 
are told to go out on the high- 
ways and byways and teach. 
This is my cross; it's some- 
thing I must do. IM1 never 
know for sure what all I'm 
accomplishing, but I must do 
what I feel called to do." 

Mr. Epstein explained with 
humble detachment the var- 
ious reactions he has prompt- 
ed from people in his unusual 
ministry. "Some people cling 
to me; others despise me. I 
insult their sense of nicety," 
he said. 

He was Dirty 

The old man drove home a 
striking paradox of modern 
Christianity in relating one 
particular experience. He told 
about being removed from the 
sanctuary of a church by one 
of the deacons, with the ex- 
planation that he wasn't want- 
ed there. He was dirty. 

As his student audience 
showered him with questions, 
Mr. Epstein never faltered. 
His responses prompted 
several in the group to express 
amazement at the man's in-

sight. 

"That man's no kook. He 
really knows what he's talk- 
ing about. He's not just quot- 
ing scriptures and giving pat 
answers e i t h e r," someone 
said. Others nodded in affir- 
mation. 

Several said, "Even if you 
don't agree with him on ev- 
erything, you've got to re- 
spect him for his courage— 
his refusal to become just an- 
other face in the crowd." 
Some Not Impressed 

Not everyone was so fa- 
vorably impressed. Some 
tried to dismiss him as a full- 
fledged paranoid, or even a 
con artist. 

But to those who experi- 
enced the magnetism and in- 
tensity of his personality, it 
probably didn't matter. 

The man, in all his shabbi- 
ness, had a commitment. 

In the academic search for 
"Truth" it is easy to forget 
what its like to feel com- 
mitted. The deeper one 
searches the more skillfully 
"Truth" seems to elude the 
grasp, so that one is eventual- 
ly left wondering if there is 
anything at all worth being 
dedicated to. Then cynicism 
often sets in. 

Naiveness Didn't Matter 

For a few brief mo- 
ments a number of students 
were able to identify with this 
man's intense dedication. 
Some probably envied him. 
The naive approach and rela- 
tive ignorance didn't matter. 

Who can explain exactly 
why they begged him to stay? 
Or why they collected some 
money to aid him in his work? 

The old gentleman talked 
for over two hours, then said 
he wanted to visit someone in 
the Millsaps religion depart- 
ment and pray awhile before 
resuming his journey. He 
disappeared as suddenly as he 
had come. 

Paranoid? bum? con artist? 
It doesn't matter. 

Those students who had a 
chance to get to know him 
will remember him as more 
than a face in the lonely

USO- National Music Council 
sponsored tour of the Carib- 
bean early next May. 



This is what I mean when 
I talk about a lack of leader- 
ship. This is the reason I talk 
about reactionaries in Missis- 
sippi politics. 

This is why I am going Ash- 
ing Tuesday. 

Filthy Politics 

One might hope that things 
would at least show signs of 
improvement as time goes 
on. 

But the campaign for Sena- 
tor this fall has been charac- 
terized by the filthiest, issue- 
less, most reactionary politics 
in my memory. You have 
heard the campaign plugs on 
the radio and TV and you 
have read the ads in the 
newspapers. 

Have you heard one single 
solitary issue discussed in 
this campaign. 

Did either of the candidates 
talk about what they were go- 
ing to do to help the economy 
or the schools or the trans- 
portation problem or ANY- 
THING? 

All I heard them talk about 
was which one belonged to the 
most "liberal" party or which 
which one was more closely 
connected with the most "lib- 
eral" politicians. 

One of the most important 
issues throughout the U. S. 
this fall was the Vietnam war. 
Yet neither of them tried to 
open debate on that issue. 
The entire campaign was lit- 
tle more than a mud slinging 
contest. 



Stylus Taking 
Manuscripts 

Stylus, the Millsaps lit- 
erary magazine, is now ac- 
cepting manuscripts to be 
considered for publication 
4n the fall issue. The dead- 
line for submissions is 
Saturday, Nov. 5. 

All poetry, short stories, 
one act plays, and essays 
are welcome. 

Writers may submit man- 
uscripts to Lana Cannon, 
Gary Carson, Charles 
Swoope or James Golden. 
Manuscripts may also be 
left in the. Stylus mail box, 
15211. 



Pure Mud Slinging 

I do feel that Senator East- 
land and his supporters were 
less guilty of this than the 
Republican Party. The entire 
Republican campaign was 
mud slinging, pure and sim- 
ple. Probably this was be- 
cause the only hope they had 
(considering the candidate 
that they came up with; was 
to "sling as much mud as 
they could and hope some of 
it stuck." 

I hope every young Missis- 
sippian has followed this cam- 
paign as closely as I have. I 
hope every young Mississip- 



pian has become as thorough- 
ly disgusted— nay, sickened— 
as I have. 

We're Stuck 
But until then it looks as if 
we will be stuck with inferior 
leadership and reactionary, 
name-calling politics. And for 
six years, at least, we will be 
stuck with whoever got elect- 
ed tomorrow. 



A fish would never get 
hooked if he knew when to 
keep his mouth shut. 



Zipper: The undoing of the 
modern girl. 



By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

Do you know that the average Mississippian has 
a sub-ninth grade education? 

Do you know that nearly a third of Mississippi's 
families live below the $3,000 "poverty line" set up 
by the Federal Government? 
Do you know that last between 1948 and the present 

directly corresponds with a 
federal minimum wage hike. 
Wage Bill 
Now if you have read this 
far, you are probably thinking 
"so what." Well, let's look at 
one more figure and I will tell 
you. The 1966 Wage Bill which 
has just been passed by Con- 
gress, will probably boost 
Mississippi's per capita in- 
come for 1967 by ten to fifteen 
per cent, and will thereby put 
an additional $100 million into 
the pockets of some 200,000 
working people in Mississippi 
in that year, $100 million a 
year put into circulation to be 
added to Mississippi's 
economy. 

Why Vote Nay? 
And yet Congressman 
Prentiss Walker and Senator 
James Eastland both voted 
against the 1966 Minimum 
Wage Bill. 
Why? 

Why would these men who 
supposedly have the interests 
of Mississippi at heart vote 
against putting an additional 
$100 million into Mississippi's 
already creaking economy, 
which has the lowest per 
capita income in the entire 
United States? 



year the average working 
adult in Mississippi earned 
only around $1,600. 

These and other figures 
which I will use in this week's 
SYMPOSIUM were given to 
me by Bob Boyd, executive 
secretary to the Mississippi 
Young Democrats. 

Only Four Increases 

Since the end of World War 
II the per capita income of 
Mississippi has shown only 
four substantial increases. It 
jumped up 20% from $691 to 
$830 between 1949 and 1951. 

1949 was the year the Fed- 
eral Government established 
the 75c minimum wage. 

In 1955 it increased 12% 
over 1954. 1955 was the year 
the federal minimum wage 
was raised to $1 per hour. 

In 1961, the income index 
raised 5% over the previous 
year as the minimum wage 
increased to $1.15. In 1963, the 
Fair Labor Standards Act was 
again amended setting the 
minimum wage at $1.25, and 
the per capita income of Mis- 
sissippians went up 10% over 
the 1962 figure. 

Every appreciable in- 
crease in the average per 
capita income in Mississippi

'When What To My 
Wondering Eyes . . . 5 



By HENRY CHATHAM 
Washington Correspondent 

The Nine Old Men are not 
really all that old. The 
Justices of the Supreme Court 
are in fact a most formida- 
ble group. Their concern for 
justice is on a scale far larg- 
er than I had ever imagined. 
Sitting in their company last 
week, I was impressed. 

As they were mercilessly 
questioning a certain young 
lawyer, I could not help won- 
dering what the gentleman 
next to me was thinking. 
There sat Jimmy Hoffa, an 
intrepid labor boss suddenly 
turned docile before an im- 
perturbable examining board. 

He wore the face of concern 
as his counsel stood in dead 
silence, dumbfounded by the 
latest interrupting query. One 
could imagine his torment and 
only smile as he faced a jury 
that could not be bribed. 

As I left the room of 
austere black robes and 
passed by the blind - folded 
lady with the scales, a strange 
feeling of security possessed 
me. No more would I believe 
these theories about the fate 
of the nation hinging on what 
a Justice had for breakfast 
or what amount of traffic he 
encountered on the way to 
court. 

Perhaps we are a nation of 
laws, not of men. 

Excitement 

Although the Supreme Court 
has its glory, the chambers in 
which those laws are made 
have the excitement. From 
the Senate gallery Washing- 
ton's grandest stage can be 
seen in almost continual per- 
formance. 

An eloquent but lame Ever- 
ett Dirkson is helped to his 
feet by the dignified Southern 
gentleman, John S t e n n i s. 
Wayne Norse and William 
Fulbright are forming their 
usual majority of two, and 
Hubert Humphrey his jovial 
majority of one. 

Pleading the cause are the 
advocates of One World and 
isolationism, advocates of 
racial integration and racial 
segregation, Keynesian econo- 
mists and laissez faire adher- 
ents, demagogues and states- 



men. There is a widely be- 
lieved rumor, however, that 
the real decisions are made in 
the smoky cloak rooms and 
private corridors leading to 
the chamber. 

Well Hello, Bobby 
Real excitement can be 
found there, too. One day 
while seeking an obscure of- 
fice which later proved non- 
existent, I became quite lost. 
A pitying policeman pointed 
me in the general direction of 
the outer world, all to no 
avail. 

After rounding several con- 
fusing corners, I stopped to 
orient myself; and what to 
my wandering eyes should ap- 
pear but Bobby Kennedy with- 
out one tiny bodyguard. 

Staring blankly at him for 
an hour or so, I finally man- 
aged to introduce myself. 
Have you ever noticed how 
small the fellow is? We ex- 
changed pleasantries and 
went our separate ways. 

Considering the high im- 
probability of being intro- 
duced to a presidential candi- 
date, I felt quite lucky. 
Only A Fool 

The improbability of meet- 
ing Kennedy is approached by 
the improbability of seeing 
President Johnson. Some 
weeks ago I became part of a 
faceless mob on the capitol 
grounds waiting for a glimpse 
of the President. 

Everyone enjoyed the warm 
autumn sun for the next thir- 
ty minutes, but an ineffable 
excitement permeated all as 
the limousine arrived. Al- 
though the President paused 
for only a moment before en- 
tering the Senate conference 
room, a spontaneous, unex- 
plainable cheer came from 
the crowd which was desper- 
ately trying to break the Se- 
cret Service barriers for a 
closer look. 

Their day complete, some 
left; thousands more re- 
mained for another chance. 
And as I turned and walked 
slowly away remembering the 
encounter with Kennedy, I re- 
alized that only a fool would 
take on Johnson, in spite of 
all the polls. . . .

For Clothes with a Flair 
3633 McWillie 



SPECTATOR 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 



'They ate us up pretty good over there last year 
and we're going to be out to avenge that loss this Sat- 
urday,' 1 said coach Harper Davis in sizing up Ouachita 
College. Kickoff time for this week's game on Alumni 
Field is 2 o'clock. 



Ouachita now has a 4-4 rec- 
ord as compared to a 4-2-1 for 
the Majors, but don't let those 
four def ears deceive you. 
Harding College, which beat 
our Majors 28-8 not too long 
ago, managed only a 6-0 win 
Ouachita. They have 
wins over Arkansas 
A&M which beat Delta State 
earlier this year, Louisiana 
College, Southern State and 
College, Arkansas Tech. The 
losses have come at the hands 
of Harding, Southeastern 
Oklahoma, Arkansas State 
Teachers College, and Missis- 
sippi College. 

The Ouachita crowd is re- 
ported to have a very evenly 
balanced offensive attack. 
They average about 180-yards 
passing and rushing in play 
so far this year. 

The Majors will be work- 
ing with a real disadvantage 
this week, however, since ace 
halfback Troy Lee Jenkins 
will not be able to go. Troy 
Lee dislocated his elbow on 
the second play from scrim- 
mage last week and was sent 
immediately to the hospital 
from the game. 

This injury will take a lot of 
punch out of the Major run- 
ning game but Mike Coker, a 
fieshman who starts at safety 
on defense, will move into 
Jenkins' halfback slot to take 
up some of the slack. Coker 
will go both ways this week, 
to our five, got 136 yards rush- 



quite a responsibility for 
this able Murrah graduate. 

The key to Ouachita suc- 
cess this year has been full- 
back Johnny Johnson, a 6-1, 
200-pounder, who is perhaps 
the strongest running back the 
Majors have faced this year. 

When asked what the big- 
gest mistake the Majors made 
last week against Maryville, 
coach Davis said that it was 
not carrying our own set of 
officials. 

He stated that these were 
undoubtedly the worst he's 
seen since coming to Mill- 
saps. They called back two 
Major touchdowns and also 
called back a 25 - yard 
pass that would have set the 
Majors up on the Maryville 
two-yard line and another TD. 

Last year against Ouachita, 
the Majors went down 31-6. 
They picked up 20 first downs 
ing to our 84, and got 270 
yards passing to our 49, which 
gave them a total yardage of 
406 to our meager 133. 

We have a lot to get even 
for.

Jean Nicholson, president of Chi Omega sorority, after being 
Chi O Owl Man for 1966. 



ODE TO OUR OWL MAN 

Tonight our Owl Man we will crown 
Whose fame in "history" shan't go down. 

He has a will which can't be denied, 

If he senses you have a secret to confide, or hide. 

Such teasing as this has been in the lingo, 

Since two people discovered each had dogs named Ringo. 

Among our sisters, it is true, 
We'll n'er forget those eyes of blue. 

Of medium height and brown, brown hair, 
A generous heart, but not a "penny" to spare. 

Two loves so very dear to his heart, 
In 1865 one did start. 

100 years past this date, 

At houseparty — he met his ideal fate. 

And just as she comes in with starry eyes, 
Proclaiming to the dorm in heartfelt cries. 

So the Chi O's join the attack 

Shouting to the world "true love for MACK"!

In Case Of Theft 

Would you know what to tell 
the police immediately if your 
car were stolen? According to 
Jack Hutchison, Director of 
the Highway Patrol's Auto 
Theft Bureau, much valuable 
time is lost because people 
don't know the necessary 
facts about their automobiles. 

The city police department 
should be the first agency no- 
tified if the theft occurred 
within the city limits. If not 
in the city, the county 
sheriff's office should be in- 
formed first. The owner is re- 
quired to sign an affidavit 
stating that his car has been 
stolen and relating all perti- 
nent facts.

The Year Of Love 

By ART DYESS 

Love is a spring feeling of 
freshness and rain, 

With joyous impressions 
that will always remain. 

It has lustful moments of 
passion that meet 

Your mind's vivid image of 
summer's searing heat. 

But, when the pinnacle is 
reached and you've conquered 
all, 

Your descent is inevitable, 
as the leaves in fall. 

And your feelings are 
altered, seemingly less bold 

As your heart takes the 
semblance of winters grey 
cold.

Women Jurors 



District Attorney William 
Waller predicted at Millsaps 
College last night that Missis- 
sippi will soon allow women to 
serve on juries. 

For Women Jurors 

Waller stated that he per- 
sonally advocated the use of 
women as jurors. 

Addressing the recently re- 
activated Pre-Law Club, Wal- 
ler discussed the Mississippi 
Legal system and made a 
strong case for the legal pro- 
fession as a career. He has 
practiced law since 1950. 
Well Worth It 

He warned the prospective 
lawyers that they could ex- 
pect a great deal of hard 
work and a few lean years 
but added, "It will be well 
worth it. The legal profession 
offers a new page in life ev- 
ery day." 

The Pre-Law Club is spon- 
sored by John Quincy Adams, 
chairman of the political sci- 
ence department, who is also 
the pre law adviser. 

Officers are Ricky Forten- 
berry, president; Jon Bond, 
vice-president; Archie Milli- 
gan, secretary; and Russell 
Ingram, treasurer.

By SUE BARNES 

"Religion in Mental Health" 
was the topic of the MSM 
meeting Oct. 24. Howard 
Freeman, who holds a BD 
from Candler School of The- 
ology, Emory University, an 
MA from Emory in clinical 
psychology, and is now study- 
ing psychiatry at the Univer- 
sity Medical Center, spoke. 
Bulwark Of The Church 

He discussed religion as a 
neurosis, an illusion, and as a 
psychosis. The bulwark of the 
modern church, said the 
speaker, is made up of the 
compulsive personality type. 

This individual is one who 
is a perfectionist, is rit- 
ualistic, systematic, and legal- 
istic. Because he is bound to 
rigid ethics and morals, he 
dislikes or "breaks up" free- 
dom, the speaker said. 

Quoting Dr. Sigmund Freud, 
Mr. Freeman made reference 
to God as a Father-image, as 
a projection of man's psycho- 
logical needs. Thus, Freud 
termed religion "unreal". In 
classifying religious people as 
being mentally ill, Freud may 
have attempted to make a 
new religion out of psycho- 
analysis. Freeman said. 
Defense Mechanisms 

People who are neurotics 
use defense mechanisms, the 
group was told, but they 
maintain touch with reality. 
Depression is a type of de- 
fense mechanism.

However, a psychotic de- 
pression is more serious; in 
these situations suicidal ten- 
dencies exist, Freeman said. 
Psychoses are expressed by 
individuals in that which is 
culturally contempor- 
ary. Since religion is always 
current in culture, such psy- 
choses as Christ complexes, 
Virgin Mary complexes, and 
even very grandiose God com- 
plexes manifest themselves. 
Another characteristic may 
be the use or wearing of bi- 
zarre religious symbols, he 
added. 

Depressive Reactions 

Mr. Freeman further 
spelled out three types of de- 
pressive reactions: the psy- 
chotic, manic, and involution- 
al. 

In the psychotic depressive 
reaction, the reality creating 
the problem roots outside the 
individual. Frequently the 
manic depressive invents rea- 
sons for being depressed, 
turns to self-derogation, and 
has unreal guilt. He may turn 
to religion with the feeling, 
"God has forsaken me.'* 

One who experiences the 
involutional depressive reac- 
tion also has the roots of the 
problem within himself. Often 
he has an underlying melan- 
choly personality which can 
be set off by a stress situa- 
tion. 

Distorted Religion 

A distorted religion can pre- 
cipitate emotional despair; 
this is religion without free- 
dom. Its two most destruc- 
tive elements, said Mr. Free- 
man, are moral rigidity and 
the lack of forgiveness. 

The speaker concluded that 
the church has too often posed 
as a "fellowship of saints", 
when in reality it is a "fel- 
lowship of sinner s". "As 
churchmen we have made the 
mistake of playing phony 
roles, of not admitting who we 
really are," he said. 

Mr. Freeman is currently 
in residence at the Millsaps 
Wesley Foundation where he 
does student counseling.

Why Choose Millsaps? 



Guest Editorial 
By BILL FIELDS 

This weekend is a special one for Mill- 
saps in the fact that there are hundreds 
of high school seniors and juniors here 
to too* over the campus. You are here 
because, in the next few months, you 
will have to make one of the most im- 
portant decisions you have made or will 
every make; "Where should I go to col- 
lete?" 

For most of you that are here to in- 
spect the campus, Millsaps would be 
the right choice. Why should you choose 
this institution, over all of the others 
that you are considering as the place you 
will continue your higher education? 

First of all is the fact that the school 
has one of the highest academic ratings 
in the nation. Chances are that you do 
not realize how highly this college is 
rated. 

1. Out of 329 participation colleges, 
Millsaps freshmen placed in the top 1% 
of those taking the American College 
Test. 

2. In the last 10 years, Millsaps grad- 
uates have won 38% of the Woodrow 
Wilson Fellowships, one of the nations 
most outstanding graduate programs 
given in the state, though we represent 
only Z% of the total enrollment. 

3. Of all the colleges in the nation, 
Millsaps has one of the highest percent- 
ages of graduates who continue their 
education — well over 50%. 

4. You can tell the quality of its school 
by its alumni. In Jackson, about one 
half of the outstanding young men of 
the year, one fourth of the doctors and 
dentists, and one third of the attorneys 
are alumni. 

The second reason you should come is 
the fact that you have a greater chance 
of getting a degree from this "hard" 
school than you would in an easier large 
school. It is easy to equate academic ex- 
cellence with 4 'hardness/' but one should 
not be synonymous with the other. At 



Millsaps, you are given the chance to 
learn more in the fact that you are a 
human being rather than a number 
striving for a degree. 

Sure this school expects more from 
you than others do, but this stems from 
the fact that it can give more to you 
than others can. If you have the grades 
to be accepted here, you possess the 
qualifications to be an academic suc- 
cess. 

Next, there is the social aspects of the 
college. There is the old maxim that 
"all work and no play makes jack," but 
there is more to this college than just 
making grades. First of all, you have a 
Greek system here that promotes organ- 
ized social functions, dances, fund rais- 
ing drives, and public service work. 
Each of these activities give the Greeks 
a chance to get involved in campus af- 
fairs. If you don't feel that a social or- 
ganization is your cup of tea, you have 
many opportunities to get involved in 
campus life. Nobody requires any of this 
from you. 

If you choose to become involved, you 
have the chance here and, you probably 
have more of a chance here than any- 
where else. At Millsaps, you do have 
the opportunity to become a well-round- 
ed scholar, which you cannot find in 
most schools. 

Oh yes! There is one other thing. Be 
sure and notice how everybody knows 
everybody else. It's great to walk across 
campus and know everybody that you 
pass. It's just one more reason. 

Wait, I can't quit before I say some- 
thing about the people that made this 
day possible. The Freshman class is in 
charge of High School Day, and a lot of 
work is done by almost every member 
of the class. Why do they do it? Well, 
it's because they are proud of this 
school, just like the rest of us, and they 
"want to show you how much Millsaps 
could mean to you next year. 



What Kind Of Student? 



Guest Editorial 
By RUSSELL INGRAM 

While talking to Barry Plunkett, fresh- 
man class vice-president, we asked what 
the purpose of High School Day was. He 
replied, "It is to encourage high-school 
students to come to Millsaps. We have 
initiated a publicty campaign to draw 
attention to Millsaps facilities. By means 
of this campaign, we hope to influence 
the highest quality students to make 
Millsaps their choice. During and after 
the conversation I began to wonder just 
what kind of student Millsaps College 
needed. 

It is agreed that the student must be 
of above-average intelligence. The col- 
lege requires that incoming freshmen 
have a minimum score of 20 on the ACT 
test. This year's freshman had a median 
score of 24. The intelligence of the stu- 
dent must be two-fold. First he must 
have book knowledge. Second, he must 
display a reasonable degree of common 
sense. The first is vital and the second 
is also extremely important. 

This is necessary, for no college, ex- 
cept Berkeley, wants a half -crazed gen- 
ius loose on the campus. 

The ideal student for Millsaps would 
be one who participated in every sport, 
made straight A's for twelve years, was 
president of the student body, was ac- 



tive in church work, and was president 
of every club the school had to offer. 
Due to a minor technicality, namely the 
Superman (or should I say Cisco Kid) 
described above is hard to find. 

It is impossible for this type of stu- 
dent to exist. 

If it is impossible for this type of stu- 
dent to exist, then what variety of stu- 
dents can Millsaps plan to welcome next 
fall? Now is the time for the college to 
prepare itself. The student that will soon 
arrive on the campus will be intellect- 
ually a leader and one up to date on cur- 
rent event. 

The question still remains: 

Will Millsaps be able to adapt to the 
charming nature of incoming students? 

If the answer is no the student will 
choose some other school. If the answer 
is yes, the college will acquire a valua- 
ble asset. The future of Millsaps is at 
stake. We must remember that "a chain 
is as strong as its weakest link." 

Therefore, when the prospective stu- 
dents visit the campus we campus, they 
should all try to make their stay a mem- 
orable one. 

Let us be able to say when High School 
Day is over that we put forth our best 
character and helped bring to Millsaps 
the highest quality student.

MARIE SMITH 




Editor 





Welcome high school sen- 
iors! The words are old hat 
but the meaning is sincere. 

We invite you during your 
brief stay to become a part 
of us — to take a little time, as 
someone else put it, to "soak 
up a little 'Millsaps Cul- 
ture* »\ 

Sit in the grill awhile and 
hear our grill queen (Acy) 
cast melodious numbers 
throuhout the bui'lding; visit 
the library and be sure to see 
the students sleeping in the 
stacks (Really! That's a part 
of the culture. Besides it's 
been a rough week). 

Listen well to the Singers, 
browse through the book- 
store, lurk around in the lobby 
awhile, wander through the 
dormitories, don't miss the 
sorority and fraternity visits. 

In short, join in. The wel- 
come mats are out in big bold 
letters. 

As a past editor said, "This 
is Millsaps — we may be 
dressed up in our Sunday 
best (after all, we should do 
this for special company) , 
and we may paint an idealist- 
ic view of the college; but be 



patient with us. This is our 
world, for the present. Take 
a close look; we think you 
will like it. Look deeper than 
at the buildings, farther than 
the social opportunities, wider 
than the scholastic rating. 
See the whole school before 
you judge. You may be a part 
of it some day." 
We hope you are.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



Dear Editor, 

All but one of the columns 
of generally "editorial" ma- 
terial in last week's edition of 
the P&W consisted almost en- 
tirely of patronizing, amateur 
philosophizing, or very re- 
strained humor. This repre- 
sented a change of format 
from the series of editions 
over the past few weeks, 
when interstaff bickering and 
argument among P&W writ- 
ers were the life blood of the 
newspaper. 

Literary Diet 

The political editor has fin- 
ally settled down to politics, 
and most of the other writers 
last week dealt with topics 
that probably deserve men- 
tion. But, really, can't we 
have a literary diet of a bit 
more variation than all turnip 
greens one week and all 
mushrooms the next? 

The paper badly needs an 
art column, if not a separate 
literary column as well. The 



old "Forum" headline was 
placed over some remarks 
about "Dr. Zhivago" a few 
weeks ago, but, in my opin- 
ion, all who commented on 
the movie except Maurice 
Hall had about as much con- 
cern for art as the heart pa- 
tient who complains of a cold 
stethoscrope. Besides as art 
column there are other types 
of columns that would benefit 
the newspaper and make each 
issue more enjoyable. 

Filling Up Space 

It seems that the P&W 
staff envisions its weekly task 
as simply filling up a given 
amount of space without re- 
gard for the total consistence 
of any given issue. I know 
they have a hard job, but I 
believe I speak for the stu- 
dent body in requesting a 
more well - rounded, well- 
structured newspaper each 
week.

A fire - hydrant sitting 
record? ! 

Yes, in The Sou'wester of 
Southwestern-at-Memphis was 

the account of a Memphis 
State Kappa Sigma pledge 
who set a new world's record. 
The pledge sat for fifty-three 
hours on the fire hydrant, 
even though he was harrassed 
by fatigue, inclement weath- 
er, and dogs. 

The Kappa Sigs of Memphis 
State issued a challenge to 
Southwestern and its chapter 
of Kappa Sigs to break the 
record. It does sound less 
dangerous than flag-pole sit- 
ting. 

A yellow submarine? No, a 
pink jeep! 
From The Red and Black 

of the University of Georgia 
we learn of a new vehicle on 
campus — a pink jeep. Suzanne 
Chandler, a junior at Univer- 
sity of Georgia, has probably 
the most conspicuous mode of 
transportation on campus. 

She got her jeep from her 
father who painted it pink and 
put fringe on the top. After 
coming to college she pledged 
Phi Mu, whose colors are 
pink and white. That's quite 
a coincidence! 

Grading Professors 

The Gamecock of the Uni- 
versity of South Carolina re- 
ports about a group on 
campus that wants students 
to grade professors. The stu- 
dent group is called AWARE 
and one of its most favored 
projects now is a student eval- 



uation of teaching. This pro- 
gram has been put into effect 
at some schools. At the end 
of the semester students are 
to turn in a grade and brief 
comment about the course. A 
small booklet will then be 
published containing the con- 
sensus. 

Another of AWARE's proj- 
ects is a student bill of rights. 
One provision of note is this: 
The University should not be 
concerned with the actions of 
students or student organiza- 
tions off-campus, and should 
not censure or discipline stu- 
dents for off-campus activity. 



Dave Pohlonski loves wa- 
ter—so much that he took a 
forty-hour long shower. Ac- 
cording to the Student Printz 
of the University of Southern 
Mississippi, the junior from 
Dearborn, Mich., sat in the 
shower to break a national 
collegiate shower - sitting 
record. He broke the 36-hour 
record of a student at Flint, 
Mich. Junior College two 
years ago. Dave wanted to 
stay for 66 hours but he ran 
out of hot water, and the last 
ten hours he had freezing cold 
water. It beats sitting on a 
fire-hydrant— maybe?

Millsaps College 
Offers Variety 

Millsaps College has something of a 
Pygmaliontype purpose. It hopes to help 
young people discover and develop un- 
recognized potential. It desires to help 
them achieve the knowledge and under- 
standing that will allow them to become 
citizens of the worldwise community. 

Millsaps is known as a selective college 
with high academic standing and standards. 
It seeks and attracts students with an 
inherent curiosity about the world they live 
in and their place in it. 

It's stated purpose is to "Give the stu- 
dent adequate breadth and depth of under- 
standing of civilization and culture in order 
to broaden his perspective, to enrich his 
personality, and to enable him to think and 
act intelligently amid the complexities of 
the modern world." 

Primary consideration for admission is 
the ability to do college work in a measure 
satisfactory to the college and beneficial

The Many Faces 

Of Millsaps College 

Millsaps is an aggregate of all kinds, types, 
shapes, and sizes of people. You will find the aver- 
age guy, the^ odd-ball, the intellectual, the goof off, 
the book-worm, the clown, the individual, the well- 
rounded fellow, the party goer and the unclassifiable. 

These people will further be categorized into the 
scientist, the literary minded, the philosopher, the 
arty, the mathematician, the psychologist, the lin- 
guist, the historian, the religionist, the proverbial 
professor, and many. 

But the most fascinating thing is that each of 
these types or classes of people is dependent on 
the other to complete the aggregate or the whole of 
the college atmosphere. Each faction or type has 
the respect of the others and likewise extends due 
respect. Thus, a sort of a Golden Rule of tolerance 
and respect prevails. 

There are of course times when there are dif- 
ferences of opinion in the midst of this conglomera- 
tion of proto-types, but most usually, thought and 
action are stimulated and resulting from this is the 
best solution. 

So high school student, if you like our campus, 
our atmosphere, our kind of people, we welcome 
you to come and play the game of life with us! 
GABE BEARD, 1963 





The Politicians 

MILLSAPS PROVIDES rich opportunities for students to 
in contact with famous or influential persons, especially in 
the world of politics. Professor John Quincy Adams, right, 
head of the political science department, arranged for Nixon

Symposium: Democrats vs Republicans Equals Progress vs Reaction 




By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

This writer did not become 
a Democrat because he want- 
ed to. In fact, I probably 
fought becoming a Democrat 
harder than I have ever 
fought anything else. But 
sooner or later we all have to 
stop thinking about how they 
would like things to be and to 
look at how things ARE. 

There is a lot of talk after 
last Tuesday's elections about 
the "overwhelming" victory 
scored by the Republicans, 
their chances # in the Presi- 
dential election coming up in 
1968 and the like. 

So as my follow-up to the 
1966 off-year elections I am 
going to try to compare the 
two major parties— from an 
admittedly partisan point of 
view. 

Republicans Reactionary 

The Republican Party has 
traditionally been the party 
of conservatism, reaction, and 
big business. With the very 
notable exceptions of Theo- 
dore Roosevelt and Herbert 
Hoover, Republican presi- 
dents since Lincoln have 
been mediocre or sub- 
mediocre. Even Roosevelt 
was strongly influenced by 
big business, and the conse- 
quences of his Big Stick Pol- 
icy in the Carribbean are still 
being felt in our relations 
with our neighbors in South 
America. 

The only Republican presi- 
dent since Hoover, D wight D. 
Eisenhower managed to get 
a nice road building program 
through Congress, which was 
about the extent of his do- 
mestic accomplishments. (It 
was also during the Eisen- 
hower Administration that the 
so-called "missle gap" be- 
tween the United States and 
Russia developed). 

Democrats The Leaders 

The Democrats, on the oth- 
er hand, have traditionally 
been the leaders in far-reach- 
ing domestic programs and 
concern for the common man. 
It was under a Democratic 
administration that the first 
minimum wage law was en- 
acted. The same Democratic 
administration set up social 
security. Every significant 
minimum wage act since 
Franklin D. Roosevelt has 
been introduced and steered 
through Congress by Demo- 
cratic leadership. 

President Johnson is the 
first president in modem 
times to make a serious at- 
tempt to stamp out poverty 
in the United States. The Re- 
publican Party leadership has 
generally opposed this seg- 
ment of the Great Society 
program. But, as usual, they 
have come up with no al- 
ternative to it. 



What Would They Do? 

One can't help but wonder 
"what would the Republicans 
do about the problem of the 
poor?" Would they have them 
continue down the road of 
sub-standard living, illiteracy, 
and welfare? The Republi- 
cans have attacked the Great 
Society as a big government 
money throw-away. But is 
money spent on creating jobs 
and educating the poor as big 
a waste |is money spent on 
welfare? The Republicans 
have no better plan; at least 
if they do, I have not heard 
of it. Again we see the Re- 
publicans in their traditional 
role of opposition — they are 
against everything and for 
nothing. 

Ri^ht-To Work 

Another aspect of the Great 



Society which has been bit- 
terly attacked by the Repub- 
licans is the attempt to stamp 
out so-called right to work 
laws. "Everyone should have 
the right to belong or not to 
belong to a union," we are 
told. "They can join if they 
want to, but why should they 
be forced to do so if they 
don't want to? This gives the 
unions too much power and 
isn't fair to the individual." 

This may be true ,but one 
thing which the "right to 
work" supporters overlook is 
the fact that when a union is 
able, whether by collective 
bargaining, strikes, or what- 
ever, to wrest wage and bene- 
fit increases from manage- 
ment, ALL the workers in the 
industry benefit from it. 

The question I raise is "is

it any more fair for a person 
to pay dues to a union, to 
have to run all the risks and 
bear all the financial burdens 
in order to get concessions for 
all the workers than it is for 
all the workers who benefit 
equally from the union to 
have to pay their share of the 
costs involved in such an un- 
dertaking?" Again we see the 
fallacy in Republican reason- 
ing. 

Exceptions To Rule 

Now, admittedly, there are 
exceptions to the general rule 
which I have tried to lay 
down concerning the Republi- 
can Party. They have their 
Dick Ndxons and George 
Romneys and Nelson Rocke- 
fellers. But I still must agree 



with a leading Republican 
who said in the 1960 Presi- 
dential Election: 

"The American People like 
to dream — about i 
car, more money in the 
and other benefits. The Dem- 
ocratic Party holds out to the 
average American the hope 
of achieving: that dream. We 
. . on the other 
to a man, 'If you 
have $2,000 in the bank, by 
God, we're going to see to it 
that you keep that $2,000." 

Perhaps the Republicans

Seminary Day Speaker 

Defends 'Death Of God 9 Move 



The death of God contro- 
versy has given God the po- 
tential of being more alive 
than ever in our society, an 
Emory University theologian 
told Millsaps College students 
Thursday. 

Dr. Theodore Runyan, 
chairman of the Department 
of Systematic Theology at 
Emory, spoke in chapel on 
"The Death of God— One Year 
Later." 

Dr. Runyan, a colleague of 
the man who started the 
Death of God movement, Dr. 
Thomas J. J. Altizer, assert- 
ed that the shock of the move- 
ment has forced people to 
face the meaning of profes- 
sing Christianity. 

God In The World 



"The emphasis today is on 
incarnation — the coming of 
God into our world, M Dr. Run- 
yan stated. "God has willed 
to identify Himself fully and 
completely with our world. 

"That God out there in the 
heavens is dead. God is pres- 
ent and manifesting Himself 
in the midst of the world. Per- 
haps now we will face God 
where He prefers to be met." 
Must Face Changes 

He said the church and 
Christians must face changes 
which are inevitable in our 
society, and one of these 
changes is the necessity for 
a mature relationship with 
God in place of the parent- 
child relationship. 

"We should thank the 'God 
is Dead* movement leaders 



for making us aware of the 
reality of the presence of God 
in this world," he said. "We 
can face the future with con- 
fidence and hope, assured of 
His presence here." 

Something Wrong 

He said that the defensive- 
ness of the reaction to the 
leaders was an indication that 
"Something is wrong with us 
and our faith." 

"We must confront God in 
our fellow man and in our 
daily lives," he said. "Popu- 
lar theology found it uncom- 
fortable to have God that 
close. The idea was to get 
God out of the world, back 
into that niche where He be- 
longs so that He won't inter- 
fere." 

Dr. Runyan was one of the

African Addresses 
Political Groups 

Franc J. T. Lee, a native- 
born South African, addressed 
the IRC and Young Demo- 
crats in a joint meeting last 
Saturday. He discussed the 
conditions of South Africans 
under the system of 
apartheid. 

Lee is a student of philoso- 
phy and political science in 
West Germany. He has .been 
in Germany since a hasty de- 
parture from his homeland in 
1961 caused by his opposition 
to apartheid (racial separa- 
tion with domination by the 
white minority). 

Political Party 

This opposition fell under 
the African People's Demo- 
cratic Union of South Africa, 
a political party committed to 
a program of full democratic 
rights for all citizens and 
land reforms. All the other 
members of this party have 
been sentenced to prison. 
Speak 

Lee is now furthering t h e 
cause of his party through a 
speaking tour financed by the 
Alexander Defense Commit- 
tee named for Dr. Nville 
Alexander, the leader of the 
South African Democratic 
Party.

General of Mississippi, will

Pre-Law Club Nov. 21. The 
meeting, open to all inter-

21. in the Library Forum

Millsaps improved some- 
what on its debate record fol- 
lowing five rounds of debat-

was held Nov. 4-5. The entire 
squad compiled a respectable 
10-10 record during the tour- 
nament.

another in the fourth, sent 
Ouachita Baptist University 
to a 21-6 victory over Mill- 
saps' Majors on Alumni Field 
last week. 

The victory extended the 
Arkansas Tigers' winning 
streak to four and upped their 
season record to 5-4 with one 
game remaining. The Majors 
concluded their most success- 
ful season since 1954 with a 
4-3-1 mark. 

Coach Harper Davis' Ma- 
jors managed to halt the Tig- 
ers' vaunted ground game, 
but couldn't stop the Jordan- 
to-Freeze combination which 
struck for two six-pointers in 
the second quarter and a final 
score in the fourth period. 

The long Millsaps touch- 
down came late in the game 
when senior halfback Edwin 
Massey tallied from one yard 
out. 

After a scoreless first pe- 
riod, Ouachita mounted a 62- 
yard drive early in the sec- 
ond quarter to take a 7-0 lead. 
A 14-yard pass from Jordan 
to end J. T. McDonald moved 
the ball to the Millsaps 34 
from where quarterback Jim 
Jordan passed to end Doug 
Freeze for six points with 
12:50 left in the half. Full- 
back Ed Schrimshire booted 
the first of his three extra 
points. 

Three minutes later, the 
Tigers had another score 
when Jordan's passing arm 
again went to work following 
a Millsaps punt to midfield. 
The Ouachita junior quarter- 
back tossed 34 yards to Mc- 
Donald, then two plays later 
hit Freeze over the center 
from 12 yards out for another 
score. Schrimshire 's PAT 
upped the count to 14-0. 

The final Ouachita touch- 
down came on the first play 
of the fourth quarter, this 



time from 30 yards out after 
a 51-yard drive in four plays. 
Schrimshire 's extra point 
made the score 21-0 ten sec- 
onds into the final stanza. 

The Majors finally got on 
the scoreboard with 3:50 left 
in the games when Massey 's 
one yard run climaxed a 65- 
yard drive. A 46-yard pass 
from quarterback Danny 
Neely to Massey and a fif- 
teen - yard aerial again from 
Neely to Massey set up the 
score. 

Coach Harper Davis called 
for a fake-kick and tried to 
gain two extra points, but a 
Neely pass fell short. 

The Purple and White had 
no trouble moving the ball in 
the center of the field, but 
bogged down in Ouachita ter- 
ritory. The Tigers turned 
back the Majors four times 
in Ouachita territory before 
the fourth quarter score, with 
the deepest penetration reach- 
ing the 25. 

Millsaps' defense m e a n- 
while turned back one 
Ouachita drive in the third 
quarter when safety Mike 
Coker picked off a Jordan 
pass on his goal line to halt 
the Tiger threat. 

Senior quarterback Neely 
closed out a brilliant season 
with 159 passing yards on 11 
completions in 25 attempts. 
Jordan, on the other hand, 
completed 10-23 for 179 yards. 

Senior fullback GeroW Rob- 
bins paced Millsaps rushing 
with 45 yards in twelve car- 
ries, while Massey picked up 
31 on 11 tires. Fullback John- 
nie Johnson of Ouachita 
led all ball carriers with 80 
yards on 20 efforts. 

In overall statistics, the Tig- 
ers held only a slim lead with 
287 total yards compared with 
Millsaps* 260. Both teams 
picked up 13 first downs.

SPECTATOR 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 



Well, you've got to hand it 
to 'em, the 1966 Millsaps 
Majors have played hard and 
come up some rather astound- 
ing results on the gridiron. 

For one thing, the 1968 Ma- 
jors are the first winning foot- 
ball team to be produced at 
Millsaps since 1957, an ac- 
complishment that the whole 
student body can appreciate. 

People don't laugh any 
more when in a group discus- 
sion about football you cas- 
ually mention that you're 
from Millsaps. No, they don't 
laugh, they say, "What's go- 
ing on over there on the Meth- 
odist Hill." 

Our congratulations go out 
to Danny Neely who joined the 
1,000 yarder's Club with his 
performance in the Maryville 
contest. Danny needed some- 
thing like 65-yards total of- 
fense going into the contest 
to emerge a member of this 
proverbial organization that 
has a very select patronage 
of Millsaps grads. 

Against Maryville, which 
the Majors trampled 21-17 in 
an exciting come-from-behind 
victory, Neely passed for 206- 
yards was plenty enough to 
push him over the 1,000 mark, 
in addition to what yards he 
picked up over land. 

Danny now has 1145 total 
yards of which 1098 has come 
on p a s s e s, through 92 com- 
pletions in 161 pass attempts. 

Halfback Edwin Massey is 
the leading pass receiver with 
33 receptions and 354 yards. 
He has caught six Neely 
thrown touchdown passes. Ted 
Weller is the next best re- 
ceiver with 20 catches and 
283 yards. Weller has scored 
six TDs via the pass and has 
caught one PAT pass for two 
points. 

Weller's 38 points is high 
for the team and he is fol- 
lowed by Massey's 36. 

Troy Lee Jenkins, who sus- 
tained an injury to his elbow 
in the early moments of the 
game at Maryville, is still the 
leading rusher with 428 yards 
on 86 carries. Massey is a dis- 
tant second in the rushing 
category with 266 yards in 59 
totes. Massey will probably 
bear the brunt of the running 
load, along with fullback Tim- 
my Millis, against Quachita 
this week on Alumni Field. 

Gerald R obbins has kept 
the Majors out of danger many 
times with pin-point punting 
and is now averaging a heal- 
thy 36.8 yards per boot. 

The Majors now have a 4-2-1 
season record with wins over 
Sewanee, 40-28, Austin, 32-18, 
Southwestern, 26-0, and last 
week's win over Maryville. 
The Majors were tied by Ran- 
dolph Macon, after our crew 
had two long TDs called back, 
7-7. The only losses this have 
year came at the hands of 
Livingston State in the open- 
ing game of the year, 21-14, 
and to H a r d i n g two weeks 
ago, 28-8. 



Considering the football sea- 
son in general, it's been a 
good year at Millsaps. The 
Majors showed great courage 
and improvement in produc- 
ing the first winning record 
for a Millsaps grid team in a 
decade. 

Not since 1957 has a Mill- 
saps football team been able 
to do what the 1966 Majors 
accomplished this season. And 
this season's 4-3-1 mark came 
against a rugged schedule 
consisting of some of the top 
small college powers in the 
South. 

Coach Harper Davis didn't 
sound too cheerful when 
asked if he was pleased with 
the team's performance. 
Rather, he said that he didn't 
know if a coach could be 
pleased with a record unless 
his team went undefeated. 

However Davis was quick 
to note that improvement that 
the Majors showed over last 
year's squad and how the 
team progressed as the sea- 
son rolled along. 

No Tennessee team 
(Sewanee, Southwestern of 
Memphis, or Maryville) was 
able to beat the Majors and 
powerful Austin College of 
Sherman, Texas also fell to 
the power of the Majors. Ran- 
dolph - Macon managed a tie 
after the Majors had an 80- 
yard scoring play called back 
and another 65-yard play that 
would have set them up on 
the two yard line and anoth- 
er touchdown. Those out of 
town refs can be a problem. 

With a different bounce of 
the ball, the Majors could 
have or perhaps should have 
beaten Livingston State in the 
first game of the year. In that 
game Livingston was behind 
until minutes remained in the 
game but came back to take 
a 21-14 win. 

Coach Davis said that Hard- 
ing was the only team that 
out-classed the Majors in ev- 
ery respect. 

The loss of the services of 
halfback Troy Lee Jenkins 
didn't do any good to our 
chances against Ouachita last 
week. The flashy Utica back 
played some but pain from a 
dislocated elbow, obtained in 
the Maryville game, put him 
at a distinct disadvantage. 

Voting on the awards for 
this season such as the Most 
Valuable Back, Lineman, 
Most Improved, etc., is forth- 
coming and the results will 
be announced probably next 
week. 

Now that football is over, 
it's time to look toward the 
upcoming basketball season. 
The Major cagers will see 
their first action in the Mag- 
nolia Tournament to be held 
in the Coliseum in December. 
With the return of a nucleus 
of last season's team and the 
addition of some new ma- 
terial, the Millsaps basketball 
program could show every bit 
as much improvement as did 
the football team over last 
year's combination.

Small College Standings 



It was grief on the gridiron 
for Mississippi's Independent 
small colleges. Of the four, 
only Mississippi Valley State 
didn't lose, and it didn't play. 

Saturday night's tale of woe 
was Northeast Louisiana over 
Delta State, 14-0; Southern, 
Ark. State over Mississippi 
College, 30-13; and Ouachita 
Baptist University over Mill- 
saps 21-6. 

Millsaps, however, finished 
with a 4-3-1 record, its best 
since 1954. 

The others complete the 
season on the road this week. 

Delta State faces Louisiana 
College in a night game Satur- 
day, and in daytime contests 
it's Mississippi College vs. 
Livingston, Ala., State and 
Mississippi Valley vs. Jack- 
son State. 

Delta State dkm't fall be-

put together a fourth quar- 
ter touchdown on a 50-yard 
punt return and a 42-yard 
scoring pass for victory. 

Garland Priddy had scored 
on a 43-yard pass from Delta 
quarterback Bill Buckner in 
the first quarter for a lead 
that stood until the third pe- 
riod, and Delta State again 
took the lead later in the third 
on Ernie Wells' 25-yard field 
goal. 

Three touchdown passes — 
Jim Jordan to Doug Freeze, 
carried Ouachita over Mill- 
saps, which didn't score until 
late in the final period when 
halfback Edwin Massey ran 
one yard. 

Quarterback Danny Nelly, 
whose pass to Massey for 46 
yards set up Millsaps' lone 
score, again was the Majors' 
workhorse, passing 25 times 
for 11 completions and 159 
yards. 



Southern State's Muleriders 
rode Jim Leonard's two 
touchdown passes to defeat 
Mississippi College, and got 
one of its other scores on a 
pass interception. 

Larry Suchy ran six yards 
for one Mississippi College 
touchdown in the second pe- 
riod, and Tommy Patterson 
caught a 37-yard pass from 
Ronnie Prescott for the other.

Feb. Convocation 
Committee Named 



By SHIRLEY CALDWELL 
Public Relations 

A steering committee for 
Millsaps College's "Toward a 
Destiny of Excellence" con- 
vocation, scheduled for late 
February, has been named 
by Baxter Wilson, chairman. 

The convocation, which will 
kick off Millsaps , effort to 
raise $3,750,000 to meet con- 
ditions of a Ford Foundation 
grant, will be held February 
24-27. It will bring to Jackson 
nationally prominent speakers 
who will highlight the convo- 
cation program. 

Named by Wilson to the 
committee were R. E. Dumas 
MiJner, program chairman; 
T. M. Hederman, publicity 
chairman; W. P. McMullan, 
Sr., hospitality chairman; 
William E. Barksdale, attend- 
ance chairman; Mrs. Tom 
Scott, Jr., women's chair- 
man; Mendell M. Davis, 
alumni citations chairman; 
Edward L. Brunini, citizens 
citations chairman; and Alex 
McKeigney, arrangements 
chairman. 

Each chairman will name 
a committee to work out de- 
tails of the various phases of 
the convocation. 

Milner, as chairman of the 
program committee, will 
make contacts with national 
personalities who are under 
consideration as speakers. 
Programs featuring guest 
speakers are being consid- 
ers for alumni and friends, 
Founders Day, and a busi- 
ness and industrial leaders 
group. 

The four-day convocation 
will feature, in addition to 
speakers, a reception given 
by President Benjamin B. 
Graves, recognition of out- 
standing alumni and citizens, 
dedication of two new dormi- 
tories, campus tours, and per- 
formances by the Millsaps 
Singers. 

The "Toward a Destiny of 
Excellence" convocation will 
set machinery in motion for 
a drive to secure $5,250,000 
for Millsaps through a $1,500,- 
000 Ford Foundation grant 
and $3,750,000 in matching 
funds required by the Foun- 
dation. The funds will be used 
to strengthen Millsaps' claim

3 Economics 
Conferences 

Dr. Richard B. Baltz, chair- 
man of the Department of 
Economics and Business Ad- 
ministration, attended three 
economics meetings in At- 
lanta Nov. 10-12. 

The conferences included a 
joint session of the Southern 
Economic Association and the 
Southern Finance Association 
and meetings of the Ozark 
Economic Association and the 
Joint Council on Economic 
Education. 

JCEE 

The most significant of the 
three, Dr. BaRz said, was the 
conference of the JCEE, 
which is the sponsoring agent 
for Centers for Economic Ed- 
ucation. Baltz said Millsaps is 
in the planning stages of de- 
veloping a Center. 

The 36th annual conference 
of the Southern Economic As- 
sociation featured a number 
of discussion sessions and ad- 
dresses by leading econo- 
mists. 

Revising Curriculum 

Baltz joined the Millsaps 
faculty this fall and has been 
instrumental in helping to re- 
vise the economics and busi- 
ness administration curricu- 
lum. The new curriculum off- 
ers four areas of concentra- 
tion and better preparation 
for graduate study 
careers.

WUS International Gift Bazaar Set 



Sixteen shopping days 'til 
Christmas! 

But don't rush! 

Aninternational gift 
Bazaar, to be held on campus 
Dec. 16-18 will offer members 
of the college and Jackson 
communities a change of pace 
from the old commonplace 
Christmas gifts, according to 
the bazaar chairmen. 

Several thousand dollars 
worth of unique and exotic 
handicrafts from 23 foreign 
countries will be on sale in 
the downstairs Student Union 
—Florentine boxes from Italy, 
jewelry from Spain, mugs 
from Germany, tribal masks 
and swords from Africa, and 
ceramics from England and 
Portugal, to name only a few. 
Time Schedule 
The time schedule for the 
International Gift Bazaar is 



as follows: Friday — noon to 
12 p. m.; Saturday — 10 a. m. 
to 12 p. m.; Sunday — 1 p. m. 
to 5 p. m. 

A smorgasbord (internation- 
ally oriented) in the cafeteria 
will kick off the festivities 
Friday evening. 

Other features of the bazaar 
include a coffee house, enter- 
tainment Friday and Saturday 
nights, and door prizes. Al- 
most 200 colorful travel pos- 
ters have been secured for 
decoration. These will be on 
sale toward the end of the 
bazaar. 

Committee Chairmen 

Committee chairmen in 
charge of handling bazaar ar- 
rangements are as follows: 
Judy Prather — decorations; 
Nancy Babb and Sheryl Bar- 
rett — publicity; Sheila Bland 
— coffee house; Willie Wal- 



lace and Darryl Shreve — Pro- 
gram and Display. Tom Mat- 
thews, as a co-chairman of the 
World University Service 
drive, is coordinating the lat- 
ter committee. Tom said any- 
one interested in working as 
a clerk during the bazaar may 
contact him or Judy Prather. 




World University Service 
Proceeds from the project 
will go to the World Univer- 
sity Service, an organization 
which provides help for self- 
help in the field of education. 
According to a brochure from 
the national office in New 
York, "overseas assistance 
rendered through the efforts 
of college and university com- 
munities in the United States 
help fulfill urgent and needy 
academically - centered proj- 
ects in the Far East, South- 
east Asia, the Middle East, 
Africa, Europe and Latin 
America. WUS is active in 
over 60 countries in these 
areas. 

Through cooperative effort, 
national committees provide 
funds for projects in the fol- 
lowing categories: a) lodging 
and living facilities for in- 



digent students, b) student 
health facilities in the form of 
medicines, examination equip- 
ment and health clinics, c) ed- 
ucational facilities and equip- 
ment for students having the 
will to study but lacking these 
important items and d) indiv- 
idual and emergency aid giv- 
en to worthy students whose 
educations would have to be 
disrupted without these funds. 

This is only a part of what 
World University does. A rep- 
resentative for the organi- 
zation, William H. Maclay, 
Jr. will explain the purpose of 
WUS in greater depth in 
chapel next Thursday. 

The World University Serv- 
ice fund drive is an annual 
event at Millsaps, but the In- 
ternational Gift Bazaar is a 
new venture.

'Amahl* Opens 
December 15th 



Feast Of Carols 
Presented Dec. 13 



By SUE BARNES 

"Amahl and the Night Visi- 
tors," an opera of the Advent 
season, will be presented Dec. 
15 and 16 at 8:15 p. m. in the 
Christian Center Auditorium. 
The story tells of a widowed 
woman and her crippled son 
who are visited by the Three 
Wise Men, Kaspar, Belthazar, 
and Melchior ,on their journey 
to visit the Christ Child. 
Beautiful Riches 

Overwhelmed by their beau- 
tiful riches, the mother, in a 
passonate gesture for her son, 
steals from them during the 
night. Caught in the act, one 
of the Wise Men tells her to 
keep the goods, because the 
King they are to visit builds 
His Kingdom on love, not 
riches. 

At his description of the 
Child, the mother wants the 
three visitors to take the gold 
back, because this is the kind 
of King she has waited for all 
her life. She has nothing to 
send the Christ Child, but 
Amahl unselfishly offers his 
crutch, his only possession. 

Healed by the miracle of 
faith, the boy goes with the 
Three Wise Men to take his 
crutch to the Child. 

Paula Page 

Paula Page is cast as the 
mother. Miss Page , a *64 
graduate of Millsaps, is now a 
graduate student in voice at

Fe Opera Company. 

Stacy Jenkins plays the part 
of Amahl. The 12-year-old son 
of Dr. and Mrs. Cecil Jenkins 
of Jackson, he has also ap- 
peared in "Babes in Toy- 
land." 

McCarrel Ayres, Millsaps 



voice instructor, performs as 
Kasper. Holding degrees from 
Eastman School of Music and 
Indiana University, Mr. Ayres 
has been a resident tenor of 
the Pittsburgh Lyric Theater 
for three years. 

Richard Alderson 

Richard Alderson, opera 
workshop director and assist- 
ant professor of voice at 
Millsaps, portrays Melchior. 
He has made a number of 
stage appearances in New Or- 
leans and Jackson.

pre - ministerial student, is 
cast as Balthazar. Mark is 
now in his third year as a

"Two's company; three's a crowd," 
so the saying goes. 

But two can be a crowd, too. 

Especially in the case of groups who 
call meetings without going through the 
proper channels to reserve meeting 
places and two organizations end up at 
the same place at the same time — with 
speakers, no less.

selves in such a predicament at one time 
or another. 

However, conflicts in schedules re- 
sulting from failure of groups to reserve 
meeting places can be quite embarrass- 
ing and awkward for all involved. 

In hopes of preventing the repetition 
of such recent occurrences, members of 
the administration have requested that 
we explain the procedure for reserving 
meeting areas. 

The two main categories of groups 
are those off-campus, or not college af- 
filiated, and those on campus. 

Off-campus groups need simply to 
contact the Business Office. 



On-campus organizations must do the 
following: 

(1) Check the calendar of scheduled 
events in the Public Relations Office to 
make sure the desired room is available 
on the date of the proposed meeting. 

(2) If use of library facilities is de- 
sired, the librarian is the person to con- 
tack after checking the calendar. 

(3) To use cafeteria facilities, group 
representatives must contact the cafe- 
teria manager. 

(4) To secure the use of a classroom, 
the schedule in the Registrar's Office 
must be checked to make sure a class 
is not meeting there. If clear, then per- 
mission for use of the room must come 
from the Business Office. This applies to 
any campus facilities other than the li- 
brary or cafeteria. 

The administrators emphasized that 
this is not a new set of rules, but merely 
an explanation of the old ones aimed at 
avoiding havoc. 

So in the interest of the general wel- 
fare of the college, we had best don our 
red tape wading boots and comply.

At Arts Feast 

Whitehead 
Featured 

By HELEN PERRY 

A noted poet who is a for- 
mer member of the Millsaps 
English department was the 
main attraction at the Fall 
Fine Arts Festival on Nov. 29 
in the downstairs Union. 

He is James Whitehead, as- 
sistant professor of English 
at the University of Arkan- 
sas. Mr. Whitehead read from 
Domains, his first volume of 
poetry which has recently 
been released. 

After declaring that "I oft- 
en wish I were given the 
grace to be a lyric poet, to 
sing and to celebrate with joy, 
but instead I render and cut 
realistic scenes into shape so 
that the way we live is clean- 
er," he read a number of his 
poems easily and informally. 

His two categories of sub- 
ject matter in Domains are 
poetry about men and women 
and poetry about "politics 
with the skin on it." His read- 
ings were spiced with wit, 
from his remark that Robert 
Browning and Hank Williams 
were the two poets who did 
him the most good to his plea 
"Beauty is a skirt!" in "On 
the Lady's Clothes." 

Mr. Whitehead also read 
his poetry during Chapel on 
Nov. 30. He was introduced 
at Chapel and at the "hap- 
pening" by Dr. George Boyd. 

Another feature of the Fes- 
tival was readings from Sty- 
lus given by Susan Finch and 
Barry McGehee. The students 
read selections by Alan 
Tynes, Gary Carson, James 
Golden, Susan Finch, Geary 
Alford, Ellen Walker, Charles 
Swoope, and Sid Graves. 
Joan Goddard, a Belhaven 
student, sang folk songs. Stu- 
dents of Karl Wolfe provided 
an art display. 

Mass to be Offered 

The Newman Association 
for Catholic students and 
others interested in the 
Catholic religion announced 
that Father James Gilbert 
will say Mass in Fitzhugh 
Chapel (Christian Center)

SPECTATOR 



By DAVID

NIC Downs Millsaps 81-76 



Remember back to the be- 
ginning of football season 
when the Majors dropped 
their first game and when ev- 
eryone started wondering 
what kind of football team we 
were going to have this year. 
There were plenty of doubters 
around but the football boys 
made believers out of every- 
one by producing the first 
winning grid season at Mill- 
saps in the last 12 years. 

The same story could be re- 
peated by our basketball 
team. The Majors took a cou- 
ple of close losses last week 
end in the Magnolia Classic 
cage tourney, but they didn't 
look bad in either contest. In 
fact they looked a whole lot 
better than last year's team. 

In the opening game against 
Belhaven, the Majors natural- 
ly made some mistakes. It 
was their first regular season 
game and Belhaven had al- 
ready begun its season. We 
lost that first game, 85-77, but 
don't let that score throw you. 
The Purple and White boys 
were down by as many as 20 
points earlier in the game and 
only because they didn't give 
up the ship did they manage 
to come back to within the 
eight point final margin. 

Against Belhaven, Coach 
Montgomery did some whole- 
sale substitution and I think 
he discovered some talent on 
the bench that wants to play 
some basketball this year. 



In the consolation game of 
the Magnolia tourney, Missis- 
sippi College received a real 
scare before edging out our 
Majors, 81-76. Millsaps looked 
considerably sharper than 
they did against Belhaven the 
night before and were in com- 
mand of the score until MC 
went ahead on a layup with 
6:47 left in the affair. 

After they got the lead, the 
Choctaws spread out and went 
into a weaving offense, shot- 
ing only if they got a crack 
at a layup. This stall offense 
is nothing new at MC. They 
used the same tactics to beat 
Mississippi State in the first 
round of the first annual Mag- 
nolia Classic two years ago. 

The stall forced the Majors 
to go man-to-man on defense 
and with an offense like the 
one MC employed, its not 
hard to get someone in the 
clear for a layup with that 
constant moving and 
screening. 

Sheldon Outstanding 

Jerry Sheldon, a Major co- 
captain this season, was un- 
mistakably the most outstand- 
ing player on the floor Satur- 
day night against the Chocs. 
They couldn't stop his fancy 
hook shot and he hit it with 
amazing accuracy in both 
halfs of the game. Jeerry was 
the high point man for the 



Polly's 
Fabric Shoppe 

362-5913 May wood Mart 



night against the Chocs with a 
24 point total on 10 field goals 
and four of five charity 
tosses. He had 14 points in the 
first half and though he col- 
lected his third personal foul 
just before the end of the 
opening period, he stayed in 
before fouling out with just a 
minute or two remaining in 
the game. 

Bill Lax added 14 points to 
the Milsaps scoring total 
against MC, Mac Williamson 
got 11 and Craig Foshee shot 
in nine points. The Majors 
undoubtably have a scoring 
potential and with a bit more 
practice and some more game 
time they should be able to 
contend with any team on the 
schedule. 

Interesting Schedule 

Coach Montgomery has pro- 
duced an interesting schedule 
this year. Tonight is the open- 
ing date for the first annual 
Millsaps Tip-Off Tournament 
with Southeastern La., Austin 
College, and Mississippi Col- 
lege participating. 

Besides our own invitation- 
al, we will participate in the 
Mississippi Colegc Church 
College Tourney Jan. 9-10 
against MC, Belhaven, and 
William Carey. 

The University of Southern 
Mississippi is listed as one of 
our foes this season and that 
game at Hattiesburg should 
be one to watch. Williams 
Carey, Alabama College, 
Sewanee, Huntingdon, 
Lambuth, Brimingham South- 
ern, and Southwestern of 
Memphis are all to be played 
two times this year in the 23 
game slate (21 now since the 
Magnolia event is over.) 

By the way, Ole Miss beat 
Belhaven in the finals of the 
Magnolia, 68-60, only because 
of brute strength. 



Mississippi College's Choc- 
taws fought age old arch rival 
Millsaps nip-and-tuck all the 
way before coming through 
with a last half rally downing 
the Majors 81-76 in the con- 
Classic Basketball Tourna- 
solation game of Magnolia 
ment here last weekend in the 
Mississippi Coliseum. 

The Baptist resorted to a 
"Stute's stall" offense in the 
latter half of the second peri- 
od to finally fell the improved 
Majors. 

MC also employed a full- 
court press defense in the 
second half, but it was the 
stall not the press, that led to 
the Millsaps defeat. 

Wide-open Offense 

The Chocs used the weav- 
ing, wide-open offense to per- 
fection after taking the lead 
when Mike Noblitt hit a lay- 
up with 6:47 remaining send- 
ing MC ahead 72-70. Joel 
Boone then hit a layup with 
3:32 left to give the Chocs a 
more comfortable lead and 
following a Choctaw time out 
Danny Bishop and Keyes Cur- 
rie got lose for layups to in- 
sure the victory. 

The MC victory makes one 
remember the tourney a cou- 
ple of years ago when the 
James Allen coached Chocs 
beat Miss. State employing 
the same weave offense with 
even more impressiveness. 

Currie was the high point 
man for Mississippi College 
collecting 20 points followed 
by Noblitt's 19, and Boone's 
18, Johnny Franklin got 11 to 
round out the MC double fig- 
ure getters, Danny Bishop got 
six, Darrell Chancelor got 
five, and Gary Harp got two. 
Sheldon High 

For Millsaps, Jerry Sheldon 
ended up with 24 points, high 
for the game, and was fol- 
lowed by Bil Lax' 14 points 
and Mac William's 11. Craig 
Foshee got nine points, Char- 
lie Rosenbaum got seven, 
Bobby Luckett five, Jerry 



Pool Tournament Scheduled 



The first annual Fall Se- 
mester Pool Tournament, 
sponsored by the Student 
Union Board, will begin 
Monday, Dec. 12, and last 
through Monday, Dec. 19, 
according to Paul Newsom, 
SUB committee chairman. 

Men's singles, men's 
doubles, and mixed doubles 
will be held in the Student 
Union Recreation Room, 
with the SUB supplying all 



necessary equipment. 

Entry fee will be 25 cents 
and applicants must regis- 
ter in the union basement 
before 6 p. m., Saturday, 
Dec. 10. 

Contestants will be vying 
for trophies and a possible 
trip to Florida in February 
to compete against teams 
from colleges and universi- 
ties in Florida, Georgia, 
Alabama, and Mississippi. 



Hassleman four and Ron Dun- 
can two. 

In the first half, Millsaps' 
Sheldon displayed a tricky 
hook shot that kept the 
Majors ahead on many occa- 
sions. Sheldon's first half re- 
bounding was also a big 
factor in the Methodist six 
point half time advantage. 
Sheldon collected 14 points in 
the first half though 
hampered somewhat by the 
possession of three personal 
fouls. 

Mississippi College got the 
opening basket, a tip-in by 
Johnny Franklin, but the Ma- 
jors took the lead on a layup 
and hook shot by Sheldon and 
never relented. 

Lost To Chocs 

At one point, the Majors, 
who lost an 85-77 match to 
rival Belhaven Friday night, 
led the Chocs by as many as 



10 points, 40-30,. Just five 
minutes before the Majors 
had been even with the Chocs 
at 30-30, but the bunch from 
Clinton then went into a five 
minute dry spell. 

The MC crew came back to 
life in the last two minutes of 
the half on floor work by 
Curry and Noblitt.

At Arkansas Tourney 

Robbie Lloyd Cops 
Debate Trophies 



By DAVID FLEMING 

Robbie Lloyd received two 
personal trophies for Millsaps 
in the University of Arkansas 
Forensic Tournament which 
was held on December 2-3. 
""Robbie finished third in jun- 
ior oratory with a speech con- 
concerned with the poverty 
problem. Finishing tenth in 
total speakers points in de- 
bate gave Robbie her second 
trophy. In junior ex- 
temp raneous speaking, Mary 
Ann McDonald reached the 
finals and is waiting word 
about the final standings 
which were not available 
when the squad left. 

Four Squads 

In debate, Millsaps entered 
four squads in the tournament 
which had representation 
from 36 schools from nine 
states. Each team debated in 
six rounds and alternated 
sides of the question. Robbie 
Lloyd and Rebecca Jackson 
Fleming participated in the 
junior division, while Mary 
Ann McDonald and Diann 
Adams and Paul Jordan and 
Ronnie Greer debated in the 
varsity. 

Robbie and Rebecca com- 



piled the best team record 
with four wins and two losses. 
Mary Ann and Diann along 
with Clyde and David had 
the second best showing with 
three wins against three 
losses. Clyde rated eleventh 
in total speaker points while 
scoring a perfect 30 points in 
the first round. Clyde and 
David had wins against the 
University of Kansas, Drury 
College, and Harding College. 
Compiled Wins 

Robbie and Rebecca com- 
piled wins against Central 
Missouri State University, 
Mississippi State University, 
Southwest Baptist College, 
and Carson - Neuman. Mary 
Ann and Diann triumphed 
over the University of Mis- 
souri, Ouachita Baptist Uni- 
versity, and Kansas State Un- 
iversity. 

Thus far Clyde and David 
lead the team with the most 
wins at eight, while Robbie 
and Rebecca have the best 
team record with seven wins 
and four losses. 

Next on the debate sched- 
ule is the Millsaps College In- 
vitational Tournament which 
will be held Jan. 6-7. 



Youth Congress 
Representatives 
Take Superiors 

By WILLIAM YOUNG 

The Nineteenth Mississip- 
pi Youth Congress met in 
Jackson Dec. 9-11 at the 
State Capitol. Delegates 
came from the state col- 
leges and junior colleges to 
make up the Senate, and 
from the high schools to 
make up the House of Rep- 
resentatives. Through 
Youth Congress, these stu- 
dents are allowed to get be- 
hind the scenes in politics. 

Representing Millsaps 
were delegates Robbie 
Lloyd, Ricky Fortenberry, 
Jim Carroll, Peggy Weems, 
William Young, and alter- 
nates Margaret Atkinson 
and Frankie Chatham. 
Five Awards 

At the final session of the 
Congress five awards for 
outstanding work were pre- 
sented. Millsaps delegates 
receiving awards were 
Robbie Lloyd, superior in 
debate from the floor and 
speaking from the floor; 
Peggy Weems, superior for 
debate from the floor and 
parliamentary procedure; 
and William Young, supe- 
rior for parliamentary 
procedure. 



Theme For 
Honors Program 
Announced 



The Honors Council has an- 
nounced the subject for the 
Honors Colloquia for the 
spring semester, 1967. The 
overall theme is "The Re- 
sponsible Self." Separate ses- 
sions will consider the overall 
question of human selfhood; 
the understanding of selfhood 
and responsibility from the 
standpoint of the natural sci- 
ences, the humanities, and the 
social sciences; and two case 
studies in responsible deci- 
sion. 

The Colloquia will include 
readings and will be led by 
various members of the facul- 
ty or by persons outside 
of Millsaps who have special 
competence in a given area. 
Complete details and schedule 
will be announced shortly; 
there will be seven Colloquia 
sessions. 

Three Semesters 
The total Honors Program 
extends for three semesters, 
beginning with the second se- 
mester of the j u n i o r year. 



That semester is devoted to 
reading, research, writ- 
ing, and defense of an Hon- 
ors Essay in the student's 
major department. 

Three hours credit is given 
for each semester of the 
work. Successful completion 
of all the work means grad- 
uation with Honors in the ma- 
jor department. 

Qualifications 

To enter the Honors Pro- 
gram a student must meet the 
following qualifications: 1) 
junior standing; 2) an overall 
quality -point index of 2.0 or 
better; 3) formal recommen- 
dation from the chairman of 
his major department to the 
Honors Council; 4) approval 
by the Council. 

Students who are interested 
should contact the major ad- 
visor or inquire for further in- 
formation from any member 
of the Honors Council. The 
Council is comprised of 
Profs. Adams, Berry, Boyd, 
Nictwdas, and Re iff.

A Different Twist 



Christmas and Commercialism 



By SHELDON RASPUTIN 

Every year much is written about 
commercialism and Christmas. 

The left-wing press turns out toams 
of tirades against the very thing that 
made the country great — commer- 
cialism. 

Did you ever stop to think that we 
might not be celebrating Christmas right 
now if it weren't for commercialism? 
What we need, then, is more commer- 
cialism. 

We need to get those Christmas bells 
hung on every street corner by halowe- 
en at the latest, instead of waiting til a 
week before Thanksgiving. It gets people 
in the buying mood (a good mood for 
commercialism). 

And once we get all those green backs 
flowing into the economy, the national 
treasury will grow and the defense 
budget likewise. 

We will be able to support more wars, 



so that others may enjoy Christmas in 
freedom, the American way. 

And after their old country has been 
burned away, we will be able to start 
them on the right path toward a bigger 
and better world through commer- 
cialism. 

They could start off with war souve- 
niors. War souveniors make great 
Christmas presents! Before long they 
will be having a good ole Christmas like 
us. 

So, the next time someone speaks to 
you about Christmas being too commer- 
cial, you take down their name and turn 
it into J. Edgar Hoover. The whole thing 
is a plot on the part of those rotten ele- 
ments in the population who periodical- 
ly attempt to undermine this great (and 
growing) commercial nation with their 
commie philosophy of brotherly love and 
spirit man ideas.

LETTERS TO "A democracy is a society in which 
THE EDITOR ho "°rable men may honorably disagree" 

— — (Adlai Stevenson) 



Probationist 
Devises Simpler 
Punishment Order 

Dear Madame Editor, 

Due to recent developments 
in regard to the various forms 
of "probation" here on the 
Millsaps campus, I think it 
necessary to shed some light 
on the present system in the 
form of an evaluation tand to 
offer my suggestion for the 
solution of this problem. 

Take, for instance, the cur- 
rent chapel situation. Upon 
cutting chapel three times an 
individual is placed on "Disci- 
plinary Probation." Continu- 
ous chapel cutting results in 



"Social Probation." Further 
neglect of our academic and 
religious responsibility will re- 
sult in "Personal Proba- 
tion to the Dean of Students." 

Following this severe pun- 
ishment we find: Billiard Pro- 
bation, Passion Pit Probation, 
Golf Course Probation, Cafe- 
teria Probation, and Grill 
Probation. If none of these 
measures solve the prob- 
lem the culprit is invited to 
meet with the Advisory Board 
and is placed on "Advisory 
Board Probation." The Advis- 
ory Board will direct the de- 
linquent to write ten themes 
on various topics, and failure 
to do this results in "Chapel 
Probation," which means the 
privilege of attending chapel 



is revoked. By the time this 
process is completed the se- 
mester is over and it all be- 
gins again. 

Because of the complexity 
of this system I have de- 
vised a much simpler and 
more effective method of 
dealing with irresponsible stu- 
dents. 

The method which I have 
devised is a degree system. 
Take for instance the chapel 
situation again. When an in- 
dividual cuts chapel three 
times, he is placed on "First 
Degree Probation." Continu- 
ous cutting results in much 
more severe punishment, 
"Second Degree Probation." 

If the problem persists the 
administration is left with 




Since the halls, dorms and 
even the passion pit have been 
reverberating with the words 
"war", "Vietnam" and "the 
draft" for some time now, we 
thought the following sneak 
preview of Johnson's Gettys- 
burg Address would prove in- 
teresting. 

(As presented by Little Boy 
Johnson, president of the 
United States and grandson of 
a former President whom we 
all know and love. The ad- 
dress was delivered at the 
dedication of the American 
military cemetery "Gettys- 
burg East," outside of Saigon 
in the year 2052.) 

Mah fellow Americans: 
Foah score and seven yeahs 
ago, my grandfather brought 
forth upon this continent of 
Asia a new political concept, 
conceived in expediency and 
dedicated to the proposition 
that we are better dead than 
red. 

only one alternative, "Third 
Degree Probation." If another 
Infraction of the rules results, 
a meeting before the Advisory 
Board of the Degree Com- 
mittee of the Probation De- 
partment of Student Affairs is 
necessary, which will result in 
"Forth Degree Probation." 

If this doesn't remedy the 
situation, there is nothing left 
but to meet the Executive 
Council of the Advisory Board 
of the Degree Committee of 
the Probation Department of 
Student Affairs. They have no 
alternative but to evoke the 
supreme punishment, the 
dreaded "Fifth Degree Proba- 
tion." 

"Fifth Degree Probation" 
entitles an individual to grad- 
uation "Johnny Cum Lately." 
Many times "Fifth Degree 
Probation ists" are tapped into 
ODK, in absentia of course. 
There are many other benefits 
which come with this system. 

If you are interested in fur- 
ther discussion of this sys- 
tem, please drop a note in my 
box and I will dig it out of 
the "Christmas cards" and 
other probationary notices. 

Sincerely, and I do mean 
sincerely, 

A Bewildered Probationist 



Now we are engaged in a 
Great Society (oops, I mean a 
Great Civil War), and for 
that matter have been en- 
gaged in that Great Civil War 
for four score and seven years 
now, testing whether that con- 
cept of a permanent Ameri- 
can military presence in Asia 
or any concept so ill-conceived 
and so ineptly executed, can 
long endure. 

We are met on a great bat- 
tlefield of that war, a battle- 
field where General Ky was 
overthrown by General Hee, 
where General Hee was over- 
thrown by General Me, where 
General Me was overthrown 
by General Wee, where Gen- 
eral Wee was overthrown by 
General Gee, and so forth 
through the 56 different coups 
that finally culminated last 
spring in General Flea's gov- 
ernment, which we are now 
convinced is in a position to 
bring to this nation the polit- 
ical stability that is so neces- 
sary if we are to begin to ef- 
fectively roll back the aggres- 
sion from the north. 

Excuse me, folks, I just 
received an urgent note. (Oh 
no, not again.) Hrrumph. 
What I meant was the 57 
coups which finally culmi- 
nated in General She's coup 
three minutes ago which we 
are finally convinced is in a 
position to at least offer this 
nation the political stability 
that is. . . . 

Hmmrph. Be that as it may. 
We have come to dedicate this 
battlefield as a fitting memo- 
rial to the light to moderate 
losses that our forces have 
sustained over the past 87 
years so that my grandfather 
and his successors could test 
the theory that the way to 
bring Hanoi to the peace ta- 
ble was to escalate furthe.—

The Draft From Student Perspectives 



A cross-section of students 
were asked to express their 
opinions on the draft for this 
week's paper. However, due 
to a deluge of tests, an un- 
usually hectic schedule of ac- 
tivities, and illness, only three 
were able to write their views 
for this issue. The others will 
be printed later. 

A Question 
Of Values 

By THOM RICHARDS 

Perhaps the most basic 
problem we as human beings 
encounter is that of assigning 
value to our experience. 

What is of value? The an- 
swer we finally give to this 
question is determinative of 
our relationship to the world. 
It has great relevance to such 
practical issues as that of the 
draft. 

How are we to determine 
what is of value? 

If our world-view is natural- 
istic and we begin with socie- 
ty, we soon discover that the 
one truly essential ingredient 
of society is persons. 

Indeed the concept of 



ty is predicated upon the val- 
ue of persons. 

May Look To Jesus 

If our orientation is re- 
ligious we may look to the 
story of Jesus. We find a 
man in whose life was incor- 
porated an inclusive affirma- 
tion of the value of persons. 

What follows? 

What of our decision con- 
cerning the draft? 

When we do so affirm the 
value of persons, the question 
of whether we should kill and 
if so, for what reasons, be- 
come serious indeed. 

Can we afford to have these 
questions decided for us? 
Present laws provide for ex- 
emption from military service 
on grounds of moral objection 
to all war but do not recog- 
nize the right of the individ- 
ual to refuse service because 
he believes a certain military 
action to be unjust. Such a 
provision is minimal in the 
laws of a democracy. 
Higher Principles 

Instead we have today a 
number of young men who, 
having determined to live in 
affirmation of the value of hu- 
man life, find themselves in 
federal prisons. These are, for 
the most part, men who be- 
lieve that morality is derived 




Alderson States Purpose 
Of 'Amahr And Problems 



"Most people seem to think 
that opera is a lot of loud 
singing and big voices," says 
Richard Alderson, a star of 
and stage director for the 
forthcoming Millsaps opera 
workshop production of 
"Amahl and the Night Visi- 
tors." 

Alderson, who is also resi- 
dent director of the Jackson 
Opera Guild, has major re- 
sponsibility for the Millsaps 
production, which will be seen 
Friday and Saturday, Dec. 16 
and 17, at 8:15 p. in. in the 
Christian Center auditorium. 
First Opera Here 

It is Millsaps' first venture 
into the operatic field. Ac- 
cording to Alderson, the idea 
is to broaden the student's 
musical background. 

As for what opera is, he 
continues, "One of the prob- 
lems we've faced with the 
workshop is the very reason 
that we're trying to have it 
—lack of background. 

"Opera is theatre. Opera is 
not people just standing 
around singing loudly," he 
explains. "Opera has plot and 
dialogue and acting. But it is 
involved and difficult. The 
participants have to be able 
to sing and to act. And when 
you combine acting and sing- 
ing you haven't just doubled 
your problems, you've quad- 
rupled them because it's very 
hard to find people who can 
do both well." 

There are other problems 
in staging an opera, he says. 
One is the matter of timing. 
"We're given just so many 
measures of music and so 
many beats and that means 
just so many seconds in which 



to perform an action, where- 
as on the legitimate stage the 
action is performed at the ac- 
tor's pleasure and at his tem- 
po." 

"Amahl* ' itself poses some 
special problems, according 
to Alderson. It's easy in some 
ways: it's written in English 
and the score is not too diffi- 
cult. But it was conceived for 
television and not for the 
the stage. 



HENRY GRIFFITH 

Education 
The Answer 



By HENRY GRIFFITH 

By now everyone has heard 
of the problem that is facing 
most of the male college stu- 
dents. It is the problem of a 

from principles more compre- 
hensive than the fiats of a 
particular government. 
Should not such an attitude 
be normative rather than ex- 
ceptional? 

If we affirm the value of 
persons we become aware of 
our responsibility for deciding 
what action we are going to 
direct toward various per- 
sons. Some of us will feel a 
necessity to say "no" to war. 
Whatever we decide we must 
be more than blindly obedi- 
ent. 

We must take upon our in- 
dividual selves the moral re- 
sponsibility of our decision 
lest we find, in our own 
minds, those thoughts which 
allowed the murder of six mil- 
lion. 



deferment until an education 
has been obtained. This is not 
in itself a notoriously bad sit- 
uation. The trouble comes 
from the extension of a stu- 
dent's liability age. The age 
extension can be anywhere 
from one to nine years. As it 
is, before the extension, a stu- 
dent can be drafted any time 
before he is 26, but now his 
liability can last until age 35. 

It makes no sense for a stu- 
dent to go through college 
with a fear of being drafted 
upon the completion of his 
education. Most college males 
do not mind serving their 
country. The trouble is where 
they will have to serve it. 

After four years of under- 
graduate school, and one to 
five years of graduate work 
no one wants on the job train- 
ing at the "The University of 
Siagon" in Vietnam. This 
would be like Ronald Reagan 
attending the University of 
California at Berkley. 

Another facet of this prob- 
lem is the injustice of some of 
the local draft boards. It has 
been known for draft boards 
to interrupt the education of 
quite a few promising stu- 
dents, and in return, leave 
qualified prospects in pool 
rooms and on the block. In 
my opinion our country will 
be better off with its class- 
rooms filled rather than its 
pool rooms. 

Education is the key to bet- 
ter understanding and under- 
standing unlocks the door to 
world peace. So leave the stu- 
dents in school and there may 
not be "Vietnams" to neces- 
sitate their being drafted.

Yea Ideals! 
Yea Draft! 

By WILLIE WALLACE 

The draft has done a great 
deal for the nation and for 
Mississippi besides the provi- 
sion of defense. 

It has provided a greater 
thirst for knowledge among 
young males. It has increased 
the size and quality of the 
Mississippi National Guard , 
created incentive to get mar- 
ried and raise a family and 
even take care of parents. It 
has given asthma victims and 
other persons with physical 
defects a new status and cov- 
eted position and has pro- 
duced many more medical 
and ministerial scholars. 

My roomie believes that 
ideally there should be no 
draft if all Americans felt a 
duty to country, but what are 
ideals to college students who 
laugh at the ideals upon 
which the institution they at- 
tend were founded. 

Yea ideals! 

Yea draft!

'Child's Garden Of Reverses' 



Author Discusses Theological 
Implications In 'Peanuts' Strip 



By SUE BARNES 

Robert L. Short, author of 
The Gospel According to Pea- 
nuts, used colored slides of 
the cartoon strip characters 
to help point out theological 
implications during his talk at 
MSM, Dec. 5. 

Short said, we have often 
interpreted the Gospel too 
narrowly. "Go ye into all the 
world", is not simply a com- 
mand for a geographical out- 
reach, but reminds us that 
the so - called atheists and 
agnostics, the '•outsiders" re-

Sweat Performs 
With Symphony 
Orchestra Here 

Jonathan S w eat, pianist, 
was invited to appear as so- 
loist with the Jackson Sym- 
phony Orchestra in Green- 
wood on Dec. 13. 

Mr. Sweat, who is associate 
professor of piano at Millsaps 
College performed Bach's 
Concerto in D Minor with the 
Symphony, which is under the 
direction of Lewis Dalvit. 

The Symphony appeared in 
Greenwood's Community Con- 
cert Series. 

Mr. Sweat returned to Mill- 
saps this fall from a three- 
year leave of absence which 
he spent at the University of 
Michigan on a grant from the 
Danforth Foundation. At 
Michigan he was a piano stu- 
dent of the Hungarian virtu- 
oso Gyorgy San-dor, who was 
guest soloist with the Jackson 
Symphony at its 
cert of the 1966-66 



ence language. 

20th Century Parables 

There are many 20th cen- 
tury parables created by sen- 
sitive artists. These men, who 
speak in tongues, need inter- 
preters which is what Robert 
Short considers himself to be. 

He sees a close relationship 
between Christianity and com- 
edy. Like a boy in love, the 
Christian can give no expla- 
nation for his faith. Although 
"all things are possible for 
those who believe", the out- 
sider looks upon this as fool- 
ish. 

Original Sin 

Charles Schultz' comic strip 
also brings out the theme of 
original sin — original sin being 
human nature, not acts. Stat- 
ing it bluntly, our basic hu- 
man nature is rotten. We lack 
at birth what we need, which 
is faith in our Creator, he 
said. 

Short went on to explain 
that our phony god or gods, 
which are idolatries, must be 
ruthlessly yanked away be- 
fore conversion, or a radical 
turning around, can happen. 

Faith in human nature, al- 
though difficult to change, 
will be ultimately destructive. 
Examples of the fallacy of 
such faith are Lucy's yanking 
the football away from Char- 
lie Brown when he is ready 
to kick; he trusted her when 
she said she would play fair. 
Living Death 

On a more profound level, 
the speaker quoted St. Paul 
who could will what was right 
but was unable to do it. With 
a phony god one comes even- 
tually to a living death like 
that of H o 1 d e n Caulfield. 
These gods are cruel taskmas- 
ters, or as Paul stated it, 
•'The wages of sin is death." 



subtle examples of false gods, 
according to Short. 

From Job to Camus man 
has revolted against God ; wis- 
dom begins when one fears 
the Lord. 

Robert Short summed up 
Schultz' work as a '•child's 
garden of reverses". 

The speaker holds a B.D. 
degree from Southern Metho- 
dist University, an M.A. in 
English from North Texas 
State University, and a Phd 
in theology and literature 
from the Divinity School of 
the University of Chicago.

Geologists Take Field 
Trip Through Ouchitas 




of Beethoven are 



The geology department of 
Millsaps sponsored its first 
field trip of the year in early 
November. 

Making the trip were three 
senior geology majors, Chuck 
Halford, Torrey Curtis, and 
James K. Smith, and geology 
professor Dr. J. O. Snowden 
Jr. 

The group attended the 29th 
Kansas Geological Society 
Field Conference on Flysch 
Facies and Structure of the 
Ouachita Mountains of Okla- 
homa and Arkansas. Journey- 
ing through Mississippi and 
Arkansas en route to F o r t 
Smith, Ark., the students not- 
ed the topography and special 
features as well as the color- 
ful scenery along the way. 
Three Day Trip 

Thursday morning the eager 
geologists boarded one of the 
four busses which carried the 
180 field clad rock diggers on 
the three day trip. The first 
days journey carried the con- 
glomerate of geologists 



through the south-west Oua- 
chitas of Arkansas and Okla- 
homa. 

The Millsaps students col- 
lected rock samples, and fos- 
sils of the fern plant 
Calamites. The area which 
the trip covered was one of 
fresh water deposits and con- 
sequently fossils were not too 
abundant. These sediments 
were deposited into a syn- 
clinal basin shaped like a 
huge bowl. The main purpose 
of the trip was to study the 
folding of these mountains 
and the Flysch deposits 
which consist of sandstone 
and shale. 

These deposits are marked 
with "sole" markings made 
when the water saturated de- 
posits were marked by rocks 
being bounced along their sur- 
face and by the material act- 
ually flowing down the slope 
before they had solidified. 

The group turned toward 
Hot Springs late in the after- 
after having observed 



from 3 to 5 after they attend- 
ed morning worship service 
together at Galloway. 

Children's Party 

This past Thursday PiKA 
men had a party at their 
house for children from the 
Methodist Children's Home. 
Later that night there was a 
pledge - active party at the 
PiKA house. 

Kappa Alpha will have their 
annual Black and White Ball 
on Dec. 20, on the Heidelberg 
Roof. Eternity's Children will 
play. The newly selected KA 
Rose will be presented. 

Lambda Chi's celebrated 
the joyous season with a 
dance last Saturday night at 
the New Jackson Country 
Club. The Baby-Blues played. 
Trim-The-Tree 

Last Saturday Chi O's had 
a trim-the-tree party at their 
house. Last night Chi Ome- 
ga's had a big sister-little sis- 
ter party. Kappa Deltas will 
really make a night of it Dec. 
16. The night they will have 
their Christmas dance at the 
Heidelberg Hotel in the Rose 
Room. The following Monday 
night KD's will have a big- 
sister-little sister party. 

On Dec. 15 Phi Mu's had 
their big sister - little - little 
sister party at the house. The 
Phi Mu Christmas Dance will 
be Dec. 17 at Shady Oaks 
Country Club Phi Mu's and 
their dates will dance to the 
music of the Malibu's. 

Phi Mu pledges are giving 
a party for actives this week. 

Congratulations to Lambda 
Chi Ronnie Greer who is now 
dropped to Chi O pledge 
Connie Elliott (here-after to 
be referred to as Cronnie!) 

Congratulations also to 
Ohuck Weaver, who is

structures and rocks all day. 
Friday at 5 a. m. everyone 
was routed out of bed and 
boarded the busses for the 
days travel. The main stop on 
Friday was the De Gray Dam 
which is under construction 
near Hot Springs. The dam 
project is under the supervi- 
sion of the Army Corps of En- 
gineers at Vicksburg. 

The guide was the resident 
geologist George Hunt, a 1956 
Millsaps graduate in geology. 

Here the students observed 
the structures of the fresh 
cuts and learned a little about 
the problems which a geolog- 
ist must face on a construc- 
tion job. 

Leaving the dam the con- 
ference moved into the area 
of metamorphism of the 
Middle Ouachitas. This area 
is highly folded and in places 
are cut by igneous dikes 
which have weathered to clay 
minerals. The group spent 
the day collecting and as 
night approached left the area 
for Little Rock.

will print anything. 

She: Maybe I sould be more 
specific. In 1 'Turtle Soup" 
were you trying to imi- 
tate any particular writ- 
er's style? 

Me: Most definitely. It was a 
combinationof Ayn 
Rand, Bob Dylan, and 
Henry Miller. 

She: I heard an English ma- 
jor remark that you were 
only a poor imitation of 
Salinger. Do you have any 
comments on this? 

Me: Only that it disappoints 
me greatly. Most English 
majors suffer from a 
stuffy state of ps uedo- in- 
tellectual sm. More than 
anyone else they can pre- 
tend and even believe that 
they know more than they 
actually do. The closest I 
come to Salinger is that 
I'm a poor imitation of a 
hermit. If I must choose 
a contemporary to imi- 
tate I should hope it 
would be Updike or Bel- 
low. 

She: Exactly w<hat do you 
have against the writings 
of Salinger? 

Me: I don't mind what 
Salinger writes. It's what 
Buddy writes that I don't 
like. Actually, the only 
writer I ever seriously 
admired was Dante. In 
fact, I even contemplated 
writing "Turtle Soup" in 
terza rima. 

She: Why did you change 
your style in your last 
article? 

Me: I wrote "Turtle Soup" 
when I was very drunk. I 
have since quit drinking. 

She: Do you really dislike 
Millsaps? 

Me: I love Millsaps. It's my 



favorite place to spend 
the day. Besides, it's so 
convenient. It would be a 
drag having to drive up 
to Ole Miss or somewhere 
everyday. 

She: Why do you criticize 
Millsaps in your articles? 

Me: Anything with the po- 
tential for greatness 
should be constantly crit- 
icized until it reaches its 
potential. 

She: You seem to condemn 
formal education in gen- 
eral. Is this true? 

Me: I >am only against re- 
quired memorization. It's 
so artificial. 

She: Why are you against the 
grading system? 

Me: It sets forth the wrong 
motivations. One cannot 
be motivated to learn if 
at the same time he must 
be motivated to 41 make 
good grades." Grades 
don't mean anything, ex- 
cept perhaps measure the 
amount of 



test. My first 
ment in life was learning 
that all colleges grad- 
uates weren't necessarily 
very bright. 

She: Do you not believe in 
tests, then? 

Me: Tests are so immature. 
A student only gets out of 
college what he wants. I 
can't force myself to take 
tests very seriously. It'll 
probably take years for 
me to earn a degree, 
whatever that means. I 
have to laugh at our so- 
ciety of "Degree Con- 
sciousness." I hold "de- 
grees" from the Astarian 
School of Mysticism, The 
Rosicrucians, The The- 
ological Science Society, 
and the New York School 
of Writing; but what does 
that make me? 

She: Why do you ridicule blue 
cards? 

Me: Blue cards are the peak 
of absurdity. Only the 
student knows when he 
should or should not go to 
class. He must choose his 
own values and realize 
his own needs. The pro- 
fessor or dean can't do 
this for him. It is irra- 
tional to even attempt to 
limit the number of cuts 
in a course. No one seems 
to realize that there is no 
such thing as the so called 
"full time student." There 
are of ten things to do that 
are more Important than 
attending a particular 
class. If we must have 
tests, then let them be the 
deciding factor. If a stu- 
dent can make an A or a 
B on all his tests, then 
what difference does it 
make how often he at- 
tends class? The present 
system is ridiculous. 

She: Are you sincerely 
against college rules and 
regulations regarding 
one's personal life? 

Me: Very defintely! The col- 



Holiday Work 
Now Available 

The Mississippi State 
Employment Service has 
openings in clerical and 
sales positions for males 
and females between the 
ages of 18 and 25 for 
temporary and part - time 
employment for students 
after school and during the 
holidays, may contact the 
Mississippi State Employ- 
ment Service office at 502 
Yazoo Street, Jackson, to

Shelton will forward the ap- 
plication by mail, upon

lege has many functions. 
Regulating the student's 
personal life is not one of 
them. All of the goals of 
a college education may 
be easily attained without 
being personally restrict- 
ed or in having one's 
privacy invaded. For ex- 
ample, I do not think it 
anyone's business where 
a woman student goes at 
night, what she does, or 
how late she might 
choose to stay out. The 
administration should 
ihave no right to interfere 
with her life outside of 
classes. I think that a 
Millsaps student is ma- 
ture enough to be respon- 
sible for himself and to 
know why he is in col- 
lege. 

She: In your articles you have 
made derogatory remarks 
about the coeds. Do you 
really dislike the girls at 
Millsaps? 

Me: I've never said that. 
Some of my best friends 
are Millsaps girls. I just 
think some of them are a 
little stuck on themselves, 
and that perhaps there is 
an element of pseudo- 
sophistication and insin- 
cerity. Really, though, I 
guess my gripe is against 
college girls in general 
rather than Millsaps girls. 
There are many excep- 
tions, of course. I just 
don't understand what 
some of them are trying 
to prove. 

She: Is it true that you are 
against sororities and fra- 
ternities? 

Me: Not at all. Where would 
the Empacs be without 
them? It's united inde- 
pendents that bother me. 

She: One last question. Are 
you really for complete 
•sexual freedom? 

Me: I don't want to force 
anything on anyone. I'm 
just against restrictions. 
Sexual freedom is here, 
whether we admit k or 
like it. Virginity is no long- 
er the status symbol it 
once was. Let's face it, 
birth control pills are now 
common even among high 
school girls. Our genera- 
tion has lost all sense of 
tradition. It may be de- 
generation, but that's be- 
sides the point. The older 
people may frown on it, 
but they probably wish 
they had been born fifty 
years later. So do I. It's 
hard living in a period 
of transition. 

She: Don't you find 
rather radical? 



'Round The Campus World 

UNM Students Plan 
'Bitch-In' On Draft 



By LINDSAY MERCER 
Exchange Editor 

A mad trumpeter, maybe? 
From The New Hampshire 
of the University of New 
Hampshire comes a report of 
a mystery trumpeter in one 
of the dormitories. Students 
have been treated to a night- 
ly rendition of taps performed 
at midnight. Residents are 
rather evasive when asked 
the identity of the mad 
trumpeter. Oddly enough the 
wierd serenade began on Hal- 
loween, Oct. 31. 

Bitch-In On Draft 

According to the New Mex- 
ico Lobo of the University of 
New Mexico, committees on 
campus are planning a draft 
forum, locally called a "bitch- 
in", to air their grievances 
concerning the recent draft 
problems. Some of the stu- 
dents object to the closed fac- 
ulty meetings in which the 
teachers discuss problems di- 
rectly affecting them, such as 
proposals concerning draft 
policy. 

The chairman of the senate 
draft committee believes stu- 
dents have the right to ex- 
press opinions about faculty 
rulings on closed meetings as 
long as they used legitimate 
channels. 

Against Campus Drinking 

The Sou'wester of South- 
western-at-Memphis conduct- 
ed a student opinion poll in 
which fifty-seven per cent of 
the students disavowed 
campus drinking. 

However, there was an al- 
most three to one advocacy of 
drinking at special functions 
held at the school. 

Sixty - six per cent of the 
students favored doing away 
with compulsory chapel. Also 
noted in the poll were current 
reactions to educational re- 
form measures. 

Independent study with no 
classes for a limited period 
during the semester received 
a solid majority as did pass- 
fail grading in some courses. 
However, about seventy per 
cent were opposed to the 
pass-fail system if used in 
all courses. 

But UNDER The Bed? 

A student at Ouachita Bap- 
tist University rolled in pain 
on the floor of his dorm room 

Me: I usually find myself 
asked to write nothing 
else for the school paper. 
In high school the editors 
decided to start a Contro- 
versial Department and 
asked me to do a series 
of articles for them. I 
complied, but you should 
have heard the mothers. 
I didn't last one semester. 

She: What about the editor 
you have now? 

Me: Marie? She's all right. 
She's Sagittarius, which 
is a good type to be. Per- 
sonally, I go more for 
Virgo or sometimes 
Pisces. 

She: Is she as bad as that 

boy said she was? 
Me: Not if she prints this. 



while trying to remember 
what had happened and why 
he was on the floor instead of 
the bed. During the night the 
bed broke and evidently he 
slid off the edge and rolled 
underneath the bed. 

He remained asleep during 
the whole episode and even 
rested comfortably until an 
alarm clock sounded and he 
bumped his head on the bed 
springs. 

This incident reported in 
The Signal of Ouachita Bap- 
tist University, is one of many 
showing that a really tired 
student (aren't we all?) can 
sleep anywhere. 

More Liberal Rules 

Colleges and universities 
are granting more liberal so- 
cial regulations to women 
though the privileges entail 
exacting qualifications. 

According to the Collegiate 
Press Service, this fall the 
University of Massachusetts 
abolished all women's hours, 
and the University of Oregon 
did likewise for its sopho- 
mores and juniors. For sev- 
eral years seniors and wom- 
en over 21 have had this priv- 
ilege at Oregon. 

All upperclassmen at the 
University of Utah are now 
eligible for keys to the dorms, 
but only if they achieve a 2.5 
average (out of 4). The Uni- 
versity of Illinois will experi- 
ment this fall with unlimited 
hours and key privileges for 
seniors. 

If the system is successful, 
the loosened regulations will 
extend to juniors and women 
over 21. 

Women at the University of 
Pennsylvania will now have 
telephone signouts for late 
permission. Usually a girl 
does not have to sign out any 
time prior to midnight. Now. 
though, she will be able to 
telephone in to stay out until 
1:30 p. m. on weekdays and 
2:15 a. m. on Saturdays. 
Sorority Houseboys 

Sorority houseboys?! Yes, 
according to the Mississippian 
of Ole' Miss, the sorori- 
ties still have them there. 
These boys set up tables, 
serve meals, and perform odd 
jobs. Their jobs range from 
changing light bulbs, clearing 
dining rooms for swaps, to 
working on homecoming dec- 
orations. 

For performing their inval- 
uable services, houseboys re- 
ceive their meals free. In ad- 
dition, many lasting friend- 
ships are acquired on "strict- 
ly" the big brother level.

HOW ABOUT A KARATE CHOP? — Jeff

in the affair. 



Alford 2nd In State 
Brown Belt Karate 



Jackson Karate Club 
walked off with team honors 
in the state karate tourna- 
ment championships in Mill- 
saps' Buie Gym Sunday. 

Teams from Jackson, Mill- 
saps, Ole Miss, and Mississip- 
pi State participated in the 
tourney. 

The Jacksonians picked up 
12 points edging Mississippi 
State which totaled 10 when 
the fighting was over. Ole 
Miss got five points and Mill- 
saps got three. 

Steve Stavroff of Ole Miss 
won the black belt Jumite 
competition claiming the state 
overall championship. Charles 
Morrison of Mississippi State 
placed second after sustain- 
ing a leg injury in a quarter- 
final match and Jackson's Bil- 
ly Chastain was third in the 
black belt group. 

Harold Long of Knoxville, 
Tenn.. a black belt eighty de- 
gree came to the capital city 



to serve as judge of the tour- 
ney and was presented a 
plaque at the tourney's end 
for his efforts. 

ALFORD 2nd 

In the brown belt division, 
State's Chuck Carroll chopped 
first place honors, Geary Al- 
ford of Millsaps was second 
and Gerald Duran of Jackson 
was third. 

White belt winner was Doug 
Harrison of Jackson, second 
was Jackson's Bob Boyd, and 
third was MSU's Marc Horn. 

Ole Miss' Allister and inde- 
pendent Rurtledge placed first 
and second respectively in the 
unranked class. 

Harrison of Jackson won the 
white belt from competition, 
Danny Smith of Mississippi 
State was the brown belt form 
winner and Mike Lassiter of 
Jackson was the black belt 
form first place winner by a 
narrow one point margin. 



SPORTSMANSHIP 

The Dr. Robert Parks 
Sportsmanship trophy went to 
Charles Morris of MSU and 
Dr. Parks was given a plaque 
after the tourney for his part 
in making the affair a suc- 
cess. 

The matches in a Kumite 
karate match are two minutes 
long and a participant must 
score two out of three points 
to win a matoh. Should a 
match reach the time limit 
with a player having two 
points the leader takes the 
win and if it is tied, a sudden 
death matoh is usually called 
for. 

Actual blows to the target 
area, the neck, face and mid- 
section, are prohibited in com- 
petition matches. A point or 
ippon is given a contestant 
when he lands a well timed, 
focused punch which is deter- 
mined by the judge or judges. 



SPECTATOR 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 



Our Majors are now 0-4 in 
basketball or were at least as 
of this writing which will not 
include the William Carey 
College contest that was to be 
played Tuesday night. 

All four losses have been in 
tournament play against fine 
teams and the Majors are los- 
ing by only four points (on 
the average) per game. After 
losing to Belhaven by eight 
and Mississippi College by a 
mere five in the Magnolia 
Classic, the Majors had a let- 
down and got beat by a much 
improved Austin College team 
of Sherman, Texas by 16 
points in the first round of 
the Millsaps Tip-Off Tourna- 
ment. 

In the consolation of our 
tourney we lost to MC again 
by five points after leading 
a majority of the game. 

Coach Montgomery was dis- 
pleased with the free throw 
shooting against the Chocs 
last Saturday night and (he 
has reason to be. With six 
opportunities to sink one-and- 
one shots not a single free 
throw was made in the 
ning minutes of the gam( 
the Choc taws managed to slip 
by again. 

Monty said that he thinks 
he has found the starting 
combination that he's been 
experimenting for the past 
few games. Tuesday night he 
started BOly Drury and Char- 
lie Rosen baum as the for- 
wards, Jerry Sheldon at cen- 
ter, and Ryan Duncan and 
Craig Foshee as the guards. 

He said that he would still 
be relying heavily upon the 
services of Mac Williamson 
and Bill Lax as guards. 
POAG TO FORWARD 

John Poag, a freshman, has 
been shifted to forward so he 
can get in some more play- 
ing time because playing be- 
hind Sheldon at center isn't 
an ideal spot to be if you 
want to play a lot. 

John Cook will be seeing a 
lot of action still, also. Coach 
Monty said that quite frankly 
he thought the Majors could 
have whipped any one of the 
four teams we lost to before 
Tuesday. 

In every game except Aus- 
tin, the Majors have outre- 
bounded the opponents. And 
the shooting percentage has 
been okay except against Aus- 
tin when the Majors shot a 
shabby 31.8 per cent. 

Saturday night the Majors 
play Alabama College who re- 
portedly have a tall forward 
line and a fast pair of guards. 
One of their guards will prob- 
ably be one of the best the 
Majors will face this season 
according to coach Montgom- 
ery. 

Sheldon is still burning up 
the bucket and snatching 
more than his share of the 
rebounds for the Majors. 
Another player that has im- 
pressed me during the time 
I've had the pleasure of eye- 
ing the Majors in action is 
junior Jerry H a s 1 e m a n. 
He's big, and knows how to 
mix it up under the basket to 



come up with rebounds. I look 
for Hassleman to really shine 
in the future and he should 
be putting the pressure on 
some of the present starters 
for a regular position. 

KARATE MATCHES 
I attended the State Karate 
championships matches Sun- 
day and really learned a lot 
about the sport from just 
standing around and watch- 
ing. Several Millsaps men 
were entered in the tourney, 
noteably Geary Alford who 
placed second in the brown 
belt competition. 

I finally figured out how 
they scored a point in the 
short two minute rounds of 
the matches. Size doesn't 
count either because the win- 
ner of the top honor (state 
black belt champion Steve 
Stavroff of Ole Miss) was one 
of the smaller men competing 
in the event. 

Teams from Ole Miss, Mis- 
sissippi State, Millsaps and 
Jackson competed with Jack- 
son coming out a narrow win- 
ner by two points over Mis- 
sissippi State in the team to- 
tals. 

GRID RECRUITING 

Coaches Davis and Ranager 
are reviewing a lot of films 
and doing a lot of talking in 
connection with the football 
recruiting race but as of this 
writing had not signed any- 
one. Until the larger SEC 
schools get through with their 
early selections, our coaches 
are kindly in a bind as far 
as signing gridsters goes so 
we'll just have to wait and 




Leading Rebounder 

SOPHOMORE BILL LAX of 
McComb has been a leading 
rebounder for the Majors this 
year, with 30 to his credit in 
the fou] 
far.

SE Louisiana Cops Major 
Tip-Off Cage Tournament 



By HARRY SHATTUCK 

Southeastern Louisiana ral- 
lied in the second half to post 
an 84-68 victory over under- 
dog Austin College and win 
the championship of the first 
Annual Millsaps College Tip- 
Off Basketball Tournament. 

Mississippi College came 
from behind to give Millsaps 
an 80-75 loss in a thriller for 
consolation honors. 

Forward C. A. Core, South- 
eastern All - America candi- 
date, was named the Tourna- 
ment's Most Valuable Player. 

He was joined on the All- 
Tournament team by team- 
mates Steve Picou, A. C. 
Vitter, Tom Skipworth of Aus- 
tin; Jerry Sheldon of Millsaps 
and Danny Bishop of Missis- 
sippi College. 

The game of the evening as 
far as local fans was the sec- 
ond skirmish of the year be- 
tween Mississippi College and 
Millsaps. 

Reserve guards Ron Dun- 
can and Craig Foshee sparked 
the Majors from 11 points be- 
hind to a seven-point lead in 
the second half, but the Choc- 
taw s rallied behind Bishop to 
overcome the margin. 
Majors Led 

The Majors led 72-67 with 
only 5:45 left to go, but went 
cold when the Ohocs were 
scoring eight straight for a 
75-72 lead with 1 minute to 
go. 



Millsaps had a chance to tie 
the score, trailing onJy 76- 
74 with 20 seconds to go they 
stole the ball only to lose it 
right back on another steal. 

Buckets by forward Johnny 
Franklin and guard Mike Nob- 
litt iced the game for MC in 
the final seconds. 

The two teams had battled 
through a see-saw first half, 
which found the Majors ahead 
briefly for as much as five 
points at 27-22 with 6:00 re- 
maining. 

The Baptists, however, 
caught up a 31-31 at the 4:45 
mark and raced to their half- 
time lead of 44-37. 

BALANCED ATTACK 

Bishop paced a well - bal- 
anced Choctaw attack with 21 
points. Joel Boone added 15, 
Daryl Chancelor 13, Noblitt 
12, and Franklin 11 

Sheldon of Millsaps led all 
scorers with 26. Duncan added 
16, and f o r w ard Charlie 
Rosenbaum 10 for the Majors. 

The title tilt was nip-and- 
tuck most of the final half, 
with Southeastern Louisiana 
maintaining a slim lead most 
of the way. 

CORE LEADS 

Core tossed in 14 points in 
the first half to lead the Lions 
to a 42-37 half time margin. 

The determined Kangaroos 
from Sherman, Tex., were 
not about to give up, how- 
ever, and rallied to tie the

Symposium: Supporting William Wall er For Governor 



By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

This writer was very glad 
to hear of the decision of Dis- 
trict Attorney William Waller 
to run for the governorship 
next summer. So glad, in 
fact, that I am announcing 
that this column will support 
Waller in his bid for tine gub- 
ernatorial post. Now, I real- 
ize that this may be a viola- 
tion of newspaper policy, 
since the editor has already 
committed the Purple and 
White to supporting William 
Winter for governor. 

However, since Winter is 
running for Lt. Governor and 
not Governor, I feel sure that 
R. B. will forgive our brash- 
ness, as it were. I have ar- 
ranged for an interview with 
Waller in the near future, and 
will print that interview in 



the Capri 

"Gl GI" 

DIAL 362 1483 



this column. 

Also, I wonder what the 
possibilities are of having 
him come and speak for a 
chapel program. Waller is the 
first gubernatorial candidate 
in my memory to open up his 
campaign with an honesty 
pledge, and I am interested 
to see how he fares in this 
"great and sovereign state." 
Overdose Of School 

Well, once again we are 
the last school in the state to 
get out for a holiday. This 
time, though, we got an un- 
usually strong dose of 4 •over- 
school' * — about four days 
worth. Now, you may say, 
"How do you figure four 
days?" 

Well, flhis is how I've got it 
figured: We get out on Tues- 
day at noon. That gives us an 
extra day and a half. Add to 
that the two days of the week- 
end and you get three and a 
half days. But if we had got- 
ten out on Friday, the admin- 
istration would have let us 
out at noon because otherwise

scene, things seem to be pret- 
ty stagnant. Nobody is think- 
ing about the race coming up 
this spring except Mark Math- 
eney, who looks like a shoo- 
in for the presidency; and 
Chuck Halford, the perpetual 
candidate, who is already 
busy thinking of something he 
can run for in graduate 
school. Marie Smith is run- 
ning for favorites, and aside 
from that, I can't think of 
anyone who is running for 
anything. 

There is a new group (if it 
is a group) which is a secret 
organization and which calls 
itself The Methodist Hill So- 
ciety for the Spread of Ma- 
licious Gossip, and I under- 
stand that they held an elec- 
tion last week. However, my 
information is sketchy on 
this, as I received only a 
note (naturally anonymous) 
containing the results of their 
election. And it is the type of 
thing that one HAS to con- 
firm before printing it. 
Great Support For Majors! 
It was really great that ev- 
eryone got and supported the 
Majors Friday and Saturday 
night (Nov. 2-3) like they did. 
Why, there must have been 
75 people there, out of a stu- 
dent body of only 950! Of 
course, part of the problem 



was the thoughtless schedul- 
ing of a Troubador perform- 
ance Friday night at just the 
tune we were playing. Some 
people in authority either 
think that we have a student 
body of five or six thousand, 
and thus enough to support 
two such activities on the 
same night, or are simply not 
concerned with any activities 
except those involving them- 
selves. 

Congrats To KA's 
Finally, congratulations to 
the KA's, who are finally 
building their new house. 
Doubtless, it will develop into 
an important political center 
on this campus, since the 
KA's are always in there 
plugging in political cam- 
paigns. That house must have 
sucked in more pledges for 
them over the last eight years 
than any comparable build- 
ing in the history of the fra- 
ternity system. (Just a little 
rib, there, KA's). 

LLOA's Meet 
Finally, for the information 
of the editor, the LLOA met 
last week. There was only 
one person at the meeting — 
Jim WakJe. But since he is 
Master of Protocol and has 
defined a quorum as consist- 
ing of three people, no two of 
which have to be there at the 



same time; and since he out- 
weighs all the rest of us by 
50 pounds, we had a meeting!

McNamara To Speak 
At Convocation Here 



CONVOCATION SPEAKER — Secretary of Defense Robert S. 
McNamara will participate in Millsaps' "Torward A Destiny 
of Excellence" convocation February 24. He will speak at the 
Jackson Coliseum at 8 p.m. 



Secretary of Defense Robert 
S. McNamara is one of three 
national personalities who 
have ..accepted invitations to 
participate in Millsaps "To- 
ward A Destiny of Excel- 
lence" convocation in Feb. 

McNamara will speak on 
Feb. 24 at the Founder's Pro- 
gram at 8 p. m. in Mm 
coliseum. According to col- 
lege officials, the program 
will be open to the public and 
free of charge. 

The two - day convocation 
will focus attention on Mill- 
saps' drive to obtain $3,750,000 
to match a Ford Foundation 
grant of $1,500,000, announced 
in June. The grant designated 
the four-year Methodist-relat- 
ed institution a "regional cen- 
ter of excellence" but was 
conditional upon the provision 
of matching funds of a two- 
and-one-half to one basis. 
Defense Secretary 

McNamara has served as 
Secretary of Defense since 
Jan. 21, 1961. He accepted the 



A "revolution of rising ex- 
pectation and demand" which 
Is occurring in the transition- 
al nations throughout the 
world has been a cause of 
grave concern to the Free 
World nations, Lt. Col. How- 
ard R. Rockhold Jr. of the 
United States Army Special 
Warfare School at Ft. Bragg, 
N. C. commented at Millsaps 
Thursday night. 

Speaking to a group of in- 
ternational relations students, 
Col. Rockhold and Capt. 
Thomas V. Draude, U5MC, 
explained the purpose of the 
school and its operations in 
opposing "subversive in- 
surgency." 

"Subversive insurency" 
Col. Rockhold defined as "a 
communist - inspired * revolu- 
tionary movement that de- 
mands drastic changes and is 
directed toward the overthrow 
of the established govern- 
ment." 

He said that the Free World 
nations are engaged in a pow- 
er struggle with the Com- 
munist Bloc countries, who 
have made a battle ground of 
the developing nations. 

Special Warfare School 
The Special Warfare School 
plays an important part in 
this struggle on the side of *fce 
free nations. 

An important part of the 
School's program is based on 
the realization that insurgen- 



cy occurs because of environ- 
mental conditions. 

The speaker explained, 
through the aid of slides, that 
the social, political, and eco- 
nomic conditions in the un- 
derdeveloped and newly 
emerging nations of Asia 
Africa and Latin America 
make them vulnerable to in- 
direct attacks from within. 
These attacks may take the 
form of coup d'etats of 
insurgency. 

Contact with the Western 
world and with the ideas of 
freedom and nationalism 
have caused many of the 
transitional nations (nations 
in the process of changing 
from underdeveloped to more 
modern natrons) to be discon- 
tent with conditions which 
they formerly accepted on re- 
ligious ground or because 
they knew nothing better. 

Col. Rockhold said that 
when the incumbent govern- 
ment is unable or unwilling to 
respond to the "revolution of 
rising expectation and de- 
mand" for a better way 
of life, frustration on the part 
of the people results. 

Frustration Exploited 

This frustration is easily 
exploited by trained agitators 
who give direction to the pop- 
ular discontent. They align 
the emotions of the people to 
their cause, driving a wedge 
between the people and their 
government. 



The final stage in the in- 
surgency operation is the 
elimination of the incumbent 
government. 

Persuasion and organization 
are the tools in the first 
stages. Coercion and terror 
come later. 

The Counterinsurgency De- 
partment of the Special War- 
fare School operates on the 
principle that the key to solv- 
ing the problem of insurgency 
is gaining and maintaining 
the support of the people, thus 
denying support to the in- 
surgents. 

The School gives advice 
and assistance, both economic 
and military, to those nations 
which request it, such as 
Laos, Thailand, and South 
Vietnam. 

Counterinsurgency action is 
directed into seven major 
areas: military, paramilitary, 
political, psychological, eco- 
nomic and civil. 

Three Programs 

The three major interlock- 
ing programs are Counter- 
guerilla Operations (CG), di- 
rected against armed in- 
surgents; Populace and Re- 
sources Control (P & RC), 
whose purposes are to sever 
guerilla - populace relation- 
ships, identify and reutralize 
insurgency in communities, 
and establish populace securi- 
ty; and International Defense 
and Development (IDEV), an 



position at the request of 
President - elect Kennedy, re- 
srgning a newly appointed 
post as president of the Ford 
Motor Company. 

Another nationally promi- 
nent personality scheduled to 
speak at the convocation is 
Roger M. Blough, chairman 
of the Board of Directors of 
the United States Steel Corp. 
Final Event 

Blough 's appearance will be 
the final event in the two-day 
schedule. He will speak Feb. 
25 at an invitational dinner 



for business and industrial 
leaders at the Hotel King Ed- 
wards. 

The agenda also includes an 
alumni and friends program, 
alumni and citizens citation, 
a President's reception, a 
Founder's program, campus 
tours, and several luncheons. 

R. E. Dumas Milner, chair- 
man of the Program Commit- 
tee, said the third speaker 
will be announced later. Mil- 
ner was responsible for ar- 
ranging McNamara and 
Blough's appearance.

Like 4 A Soul Out Of Purgatory' 



"And as we finish our efforts we find 
ourselves feeling, not sad, but as free 
and happy as a soul out of purgatory,'' 
so stated a previous Purple and White 
editor as he prepared to relinquish his 
position. 

The words capture our sentiments as 
we turn over the duties of the paper to 
a new administration. The fact that we 
feel no sadness or nostalgia on this occa- 
sion is due, not to a lack of gratitude for 
this wonderful opportunity. 

Indeed, we are grateful to the college 
community, the Purple and White staff 
and the administration for helping us 
learn, ever so gradually, what it is like 
io have a free spirit, divorced from pet 
ty conventions. At the same time, the 
demand for strict self - discipline, es- 
pecially where the matter of time is in- 
volved, has created intense frustrations 
when it came into conflict with the new 
born "blithe spirit". 

The editor of a newspaper is in a sense 
in bondage. He cannot be free unless he 
is so confident in his ability that he is 
positive that every paper which hits the 
stands is top quality and simply couldn't 
be better. We don't fit that category. 

In spite q£ the pride which inevitably 
welled up inside as each issue rolled off 
the presses, we were constantly beseiged 
with doubts: 

"Are we doing the best job possible? 

Is the newspaper really representing 
the college community? 

Perhaps our criticism could have been 
expressed more tactfully. Or were we 
too mealy-mouthed? 

What is Mrs. Goodman going to think 
when she sees that the headline read, 
'The Crowd Was On THEIR Feet'? 

Are the Pikes going to kill us for los- 
ing the "Pi" and reporting the Kappa 
Alphas as Song Fest winners? How many 
windows will Joe Blow break when he 
sees his story sliced in half? 

The students liked the paper this week 
but will next week's be lifeless? Etc., 
etc. 

One of the principle dilemmas which 
faced this particular administration in- 
volved the matter of consistency. Con- 
sistency is that illusory goal toward 
which an editor always strives but never 
quite achieves. There is a certain amount 



of hesitancy (occasionally even fear) as 
his opinions and philosophy are aired 
before several thousand people, especial- 
ly for someone still in the process ot 
making attitudinal transitions on a 1 1 
phases of life — political, social, reli- 
gious, etc. 

No matter how firmly we believed in a 
particular stand, we were often haunted 
by the realization that it represented an 
opinion exactly the opposite of that held 
just as staunchly the previous year, the 
previous month, or perhaps only last 
week. 

And the question inevitably nags us: 
"Will we believe the same thing next 
week, or will some unexpected light be 
thrown on the issue to affect our attitude 
or basic philosophy again." 

We have thought at times how easy it 
would be to resign ourselves to putting 
out a passive, "nice" paper praising the 
administration, student senate, faculty 
and janitors through a regular reitera- 
tion of platitudes; to follow an accepta- 
ble pattern; to create "a solid, clean 
newspaper that boosts the college the 
way a winning football team does." 

But we were driven by the realization 
that students want and deserve a dy- 
namic, critical, "activist" newspaper. 
At the same time we were concerned 
over the question of where "activism" 
.epds and yellow journalism begins. Thus 
the editor's dilemma. 

So the departing emotions are not 
tinged with sadness, but rather with re- 
lief and gratitude. We are grateful to the 
student body for their cooperation and 
willingness to express opinions through 
letters-to-the-editor; to the administra- 
tion for its emphasis on academic free- 
dom and student responsibility. 

The rollicking moments and hilarious 
experiences will not soon be forgotten. 
But it is the tensions, frustrations, and 
criticisms, however painful they were a* 
the time, for which we are most grate- 
ful. It is not the fun times, but "the 
times that try men's souls" that cause 
men to stick together, to search other's 
needs and desires and to know what 
causes "true friendship." 

For these and many other things we 
are sincerely grateful. 



LETTERS TO 
THE EDITOR 



A democracy is a society in which 
honorable men may honorably disagree" 

(Adlai Stevenson) 



Apathy Alley 

The recent fiasco of trying 
to goad free speech out of a 
complacent, apathetic student 
body is indicative of why so 
many intellectual activities on 
this campus are dead from 
the neck up. It bears an un- 
happy resemblance to those 
silent classes with a book of 
controversial, vibrant ideas 
and no one to talk about 
them. 

If this student body does 
any thinking except about 
what their parents told them 
to think, why don't they com- 
municate it? Are they afraid, 
inarticulate, or feeble - mind- 
ed? 

- There are a few students 
involved in energetic mental 
activity and a dialogue with 
them would be worthwhile. 
Perhaps it was the cold, or 
the threat of a soapbox, or 
of being jeered at or ignored. 

But one really feels it was 
the indifferent attitude of 
mealy-mouthed, "nice" stu- 



KA Congratulates 
Political Editor's 
'Keen Perception 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to take this let- 
ter to the editor as a means 
of commenting upon Mr. Oar- 
roll's keen sense of perception 
in his last "Symposium." He 
has at last (after four years 
of fruitless attempts) gained 
a true insight as to how the 
KA's perennially succeed in 
rush. 

For those who might have 
missed his comment about 
our new house, I feel it is 
worth repeating. "That house 
must have sucked in more 
pledges for them over the last 
eight years than any corn- 
dents behind the Magnolia 
Curtain. In the words of Adlai 
Stevenson, "Eggheads of the 
world unite. You have noth- 
ing to lose but your yokes."

parable building in the history 
of the fraternity system." 

Of course our new house is 
the sole reason thai I, or any 
of my brothers are now as- 
sociated with Kappa Alpha. 

We were so enthralled and 
controlled by the vision of 
this house that it totally ob- 
scured the fact that we had 
the worst fraternity house on 
campus at the time of our 
pledging. Too, we spent so, 
much time spreading propa- 
ganda about this house that it 
took Eugene Countiss and the 
brothers and the alumni over 
six years to raise the $100,000 
necessary to build this house. 

Of course, there was never 
any time left over for "Broth- 
erhood," for winning intra- 
murals, for social life or any- 
thing else that fraternities 
usually do. 

I'm sure too, that as Mr. 
Carroll predicted, the new 
house will be used primarily 
as a center of political activ- 
ity where pills and campus at-

MATTERS 




MARIE SMITH 




Editor 





■r (The End !) 
And after one year and 24 
issues of the Purple and 
White, two of my principle co- 
horts in this journalistic en- 
deavor are still not convinced 
that their job was that of 
make-UP rather than make- 
OUT editors. 

I tried to tell them, but they 
couldn't hear me for all the 
screaming, biting, kicking and 
general overall confusion in 
the office each Tuesday after- 
noon. Looking back, I marvel 
at the fact that the paper 
EVER managed to get itself 
together. 

Seriously though, Holly 
Reuhl and J. K. Smith have 
bee* indispensable this entire 
year. J. K.'s occasional pat on 
the head and Holly's shrugs 
and bland reminders that 
"Everything's gonria work 
out" helped a bunch, morale- 
wise. 

Photograr-hers 

Someone else whose contri- 
butions in this area (morale— 
you spell it with an "e") I 
sincerely appreciate is Jim 
Lucas. Jim worked behind the 
scenes almost constantly- 
thinking up ideas and projects 
and helping to implement 
them. Jim's photographic con- 
tributions enabled us to run 
an unusually large number of 
professional, action-type pic- 
tures. 

Thanks also to Ronnie Davis 
for the pictures he took. Ron- 
nie, who is also employed as 
the public relations photogra- 
pher, is new in the field but 
is doing very well. 

News Editor 

There is one person I really 
don't know how to thank be- 
cause anything I say is going 
to sound trite compared to the 
quality of her work on the 
paper. Mary Jane Marshall, 
news editor, is an uncannily 
capable freshman who is 
headed, inevitably, for the 
position of editor someday 



Feature Editor 

The feature editor, Cheryl 
Barrett, knows few equals in 
her field. Check her "Save 



The Dog" story in this issue 
for evidence of her unique 
ability. 

Sports Editor 

David Davidson, sports edi- 
tor, for all his cruel tricks, 
has done a great job. This* 
Don Juan of the sports de- 
partment loves to write but 
he hates to get his hands mes- 
sy with that rubber cement. 
He'd rather fight than. . . . 
Proofreader 

Another "old faithful" is 
Michele Jack, who spent 
hours each Tuesday evening 
scrutinizing all the proofs for 
grammatical errors and mak- 
ing sure we didn't have the 
Kappa Alpha Rose dropped to 
a Sig, etc. 

Sincere Thanks 

I wish space permitted me 
to. give each person the cred- 
it he deserves. But instead I 
will just express my sincere 
thanks to the following peo- 
ple: Geary Alford, assistant 
editor, for the editorials he 
wrote; Helen Perry, assistant 
feature editor; Dianne Ander- 
son, society editor, for a very 
thorough job; Jim Carroll, po- 
litical editor; Lindsay Mer- 
cer, exchange editor; Freddy 
Davis, Tommy Bobbins, and 
Russell Ingram, cartoonists; 
Faye Junkin, for a great job 
as circulation manager; and 
Dianne Partridge, Sue 
Barnes, Sheila Bland, Susan 
Dacus, Margaret Stone, John 
Schutt, David Fleming, Chuck 
Hallford, and William Young 
for their news and feature 
stories. 

Thanks also to members of 
the circulation staff for get- 
ting the paper out to subscrib- 
ers each week. 

Business Manager 

And now — about the man 
who made it all possible. 
While the news staff ran 
around in the office scream- 
ing at each other and pecking 
on typewriters or was out 
smelling for news, Maurice 
Hall was either patiently at- 
tempting to balance the budg- 
et or selling ads so he would

Money Needed For 
'Save TbeDog 'Fund 



By CHERYL BARRETT 
Feature Editor 

When you think of home do 
you think of a pet dog greet- 
ing you at the door, wagging 
his tail in eager anticipation? 

Well Millsaps has now 
added this new homey touch, 
another example of its tire- 
less efforts to add to the hap- 
piness of its students. (Lets 
only hope that he feels more 
welcome than some of the ef- 
forts, such as Martin St. 
James, M-Club dances and 
others that would only em- 
barrass the conscientious Mill- 
saps siudent body, otherwise 
he will leave campus with his 
tail between his legs.) 

But about the dog. 

Free Meals 

There are various and sun- 
dry reports on when and 
where he made his first ap- 
pearance. One first noticed 
him around the sorority 
houses, this wise decision on 
his part winning him a free 
meal of two hot dogs. 

Some first saw him as a 
rurious nose prying into 
home-cooked goodies and bag- 
gage being unloaded after the 
holidays. Others had the 
pleasure on their way to 
breakfast, giving him an af- 
fectionate, if somewhat sleepy 
pat on the head just be- 
fore going in the door of the 
union. 

After a couple of days peo- 
ple began to name him. 

Anything that can greet you 
before breakfast wagging its 
tail with a smile on its face 
deserves a name. Like Fang, 
Irving, Vic, how 'bout Snoopy 
(the Red Baron maybe? 
No?) Would you consider Ma- 
jor? Or if you're not a lover 
of animals, TDD (That Dumb 



Dog). Chicken Man fans will 
notice that TDD spelled back- 
wards is DDT. Democrats 
might go in for calling him 
Goldwater, depending on their 
sympathies toward dogs. 
KD's would tend toward Dag- 
ger Dog, Zeta's to Crown 
Hound, XO's to Bird Dog and 
so on ad nauseum. 

Won Hearts 
As friendly puppies tend to 
do he won his way into the 
conscientious hearts of stu- 
dents everywhere on campus. 
Soon it was noticed that he 
had a ghastly growth on the 
side of his head. So two ani- 
mal lovers, Wayne Farrell 
and Lynn Marshall, took it 
upon themselves to take him 
to the vet. 

The vet recognized him for 
what he was, a nine month 
old puppy of the longhair va- 
riety. Which means that he's 
a lost mutt with long hair, 
about nine months old. The 
"growth" turned out to be a 
swollen wound contracted in a 
real dogfight (with another 
dog, not the Red Baron) 

This kind doctor for free 
shaved and doctored the 
wound and gave the poor

History Profs Manuscript 
Slated For Publication 



A manuscript on Presi- 
dential Reconstruction in Mis- 
sissippi written by a Millsaps 
College history professor has 
been accepted for publication 
by the Louisiana State Uni- 
versity Press. 

Author of the proposed book 
is Dr. William C. Harris, as- 
sistant professor of history at 
Millsaps. The manuscript is 
scheduled for publication in 
1967. 

According to Or. Harris, the 
manuscript deals with the 
problems of recovery and ad- 
justment from the Civil War 
encountered by Mississippians 
during the early Reconstruc- 
tion period, "when," Harris 
says, "the politics of the state 
were primarily in the hands 
of the old citizens and before 
Radical Reconstruction and 
Negro suffrage were imple- 
mented." 

Dr. Harris says the book 
will he the first published 
study on any Southern state 
devoted exclusively to Presi- 
dential Reconstruction or the 
early Reconstruction period. 

1 'Presidential Reconstruc- 



tion" refers to the two-year 
period immediately following 
the war when President An- 
drew Johnson had control of 
the Reconstruction program. 
His moderate plan allowed 
the old electorate to continue 
to direct the political activi- 
ties of the states. Most studies 
of the post-war era have con- 
cerned the Radical Republi- 
can or Congressional Plan, 
which later gained control of 
the Reconstruction process. 

Dr. Harris has been a mem- 
ber of the Millsaps faculty 
since 1963. He received his 
Bachelor of Arts, Master of 
Arts and Ph.D. degrees from 
the University of Alabama. 
He is a native of Alabama. 



His specialization ha 
the Civil War era. Another 
book, Leroy Pope Walker: 
Confederate Secretary of 
War, was published by the 
Confederate Publishing Com- 
pany in 1962. He delivered a 
paper on the Black Code of 
1865 before the Mississippi 
Historical Society earlier this 
year. 




DEBATE TOURNEY WINNERS — Individual events winners in the Millsaps Invitational De- 
bate Tournament held Jan. 6-7 include, from left, Scott Wendelsdorf of Mississippi State,

Computers Conduct Chess Match; 
Coed Sues University For Grade 



By LINDSAY MERCER 

Exchange Editor 
Have you ever heard of a 
computer winning a chess 
match? Stanford, Calif, com- 
puters won a transcontinental 
chess match with Carnegie 
Tech and opened four games 
with new rivals in Russia. 

With moves telegraphed 
between Stanford and Mos- 
cow's Institute of Experimen- 
tal and Theoretical Physics, 
the match is expected to take 
about a year to complete. The 
moves are chosen entirely by 
the machines, which fol- 
low predetermined chess play- 
ing programs worked out by 
their human master. 

Chess provides a way of 
testing computing methods for 
making machines behave in- 
telligently under conditions in 
which results are easy to 
evaluate. The Moscow match 
arose from a challenge issued 
last year by Stanford Profes- 
sor John McCarthy during a 
visit to the Soviet Union. 

This report from the New 
Mexico Lobo of the University 
of New Mexico shows the ad- 
vancing scientific world. We 
may even have a computer as 
the next world champion 
chess player. 

Suit Over Grade 

The Comellian of Cornell 
University tells of a Universi- 
ty of Colorado coed who is 
suing the University for a 
grade. 

The girl had received what 
she described as a punitive 
"F" for allegedly cheating on 
a final exam last year. The 
basis of her complaint is that 
a university disciplinary com- 



mittee had handed down a 
ruling of 4 4 no action" when 
the case came before it. 

Although this is not equiva- 
lent to a ruling of innocent, 
the coed maintained that she 
should have been considered 
innocent until proved guilty 
and should not have been pun- 
ished for a unproved offense. 

The court ruled that they 
had no jurisdiction in the case 
since it was an academic 
matter. 

Double Meanings 

According to The Black and 
White of the University of 
Georgia, people say one thing 
and really mean another. 

For instance, he says, 44 I 
don't know how I made that 
**A". . .1 didn't study; I wrote 
so illegibly that he probably 
couldn't read it so he just 
gave me an "A" to be safe." 
But he really means, "I'm so 
smart I make myself sick." 
Others follow: 

Statement: 44 1 heard that 
section, sir but I didn't quite 
understand it." 

Meaning: "Our roaring 
twenties party was last 
night." 

Statement: 4 Tve always 
found the campus police very 
accommodating. " 

Meaning: 44 My father is on 
the Board of Trustees." 

Statement: <4 I just decided 
to go ahead and get my serv- 
ice obligations over with." 

Meaning: ,4 I made a .2 and 
they drafted me." 

Statement: 44 I hate the kind 
of people who are always talk- 
ing about their honors and 
keys. Now don't think I'm 
poor mouthing or jealous. I'm 
•in just as many honoraries as 



the next fellow but you don't 
hear me going around telling 
people I'm in ODK or Who's 
Who or any of the other things 
I'm in." 

Meaning: 44 I hope you get 
the picture, chick. I'm big on 
this campus." 

Does any of this sound fa- 
miliar? If so, now you can do 
your own interpreting. 
Engineers Protest 

From the New Mexico Lobo 
we learn that the civil engi- 
neers held a demonstration— 
against the movement of the 
Kappa Kappa Gamma sorori- 
ty house to another part of 
the University of New Mexico 
campus. 

The engineers marched in 
protest and passed out leaf- 
lets to passing motorists in 
front of the Kappa house pro- 
claiming both their love and 
disappointment in the loss of 
some of the 4 4 best viewing on 
campus!" 

Some of the signs read: 
"Happiness is a warm Kap- 
pa"; 4 4 Beautiful girls mean 
happy engineers"; and "Civil 
engineers believe in girl pow- 
er."

World Affairs Specialist Lectures 



The importance of making 
America an example to the 
world's underdeveloped and 
developing nations was urged 
upon M i 1 1 s a p s students in 
chapel Thursday. 

Miss Lisa Sergio, specialist 
and lecturer in world affairs, 
speaking on "The Power of 
Youth in World Affairs/' said 
that the people of underde- 
veloped nations were not look- 
ing at how many cars or TV 
sets Americans have but at 
the eternal values of our so- 
ciety. 

She said we must be able to 
say to these people that we 
fulfill our promise of freedom 
to all regardless of race, 
-creed or color. "And you stu- 
dents are the privileged few 
who can point the step out 
of non-liberalism, M she said. 

Miss Sergio stressed this 
point as a way of wooing the 
uncommitted nations away 
from Communism and into the 
Free World camp. 

Students' Responsibility 

To do this successfully she 
emphasized that American 
student leaders must accept 
the responsibility of helping 
these people find a pattern of 
life— technological, education- 



al, economic, and social — to 
match the political independ- 
ence they have already 
achieved. 

The speaker said if we 
leave this responsibility to the 
Communists, and the uncom- 
mitted nations decide to toss 
in their lot with them, then 
Communist ideology would 
control more than half of the 
world's population. "The re- 
sulting situation would be 
very difficult and we are com- 
ing very close to it,*' she 
added. 

In another lecture, directed 
to Professor Howard Baven- 
der's international relations 
class, Miss Sergio expressed 
consternation over what she 
called America's "dual ap- 
proach'' in regard to the war 
in Vietnam. 

Credibility Gap 

She said the fact that we 
are publicly discussing and 
planning continuance of a war 
we have never declared is 
widening the credibility gap 
between ourselves and the 
rest of the world. 

"The United States Consti- 
tution," she said, "demands 
that Congress declare a war 
before we send people to be 



Bell Given $15,000 
NSF Fellowship 



The National Science Foun- 
dation has awarded a $15,000 
research fellowship in biology 
to Rondall E. Bell, chairman 
of the Millsaps biology depart- 
ment. 

Bell will use the 15-month 
grant next year at the Uni- 
versity of Mississippi, where 
he will work with Dr. William 
H. Norman, professor of bi- 
ology, on the serological and 
biochemical aspects of 
hormonally induced 
polyarteritis nodosa. 

Polyarteritis nodosa is an 
inflamatory disease which af- 
fects numerous arteries in the 
body, particularly in the in- 
testinal area. It has been dis- 
covered that the disease can 
be induced in animals by the 
injection of hormones. 

The disease has been the 
subject of a National Science 
Foundation - sponsored under- 
graduate research participa- 
tion program at Millsaps for 
several years. A member of 
the biology department fac- 
ulty, Dr. James C. Perry, is 
the leading authority on the 
disease. 

Bell's research will be con- 
cerned with the study of 
serum proteins of poly- 
arteritic animals and develop- 
ment of serum to combat the 
disease and with the biochem- 
ical aspects of the disease. He 
will attempt to learn the ex- 
tent of variation of collagens 
— the chief constituent of 
fibrils of connective tissue 
and of the bones — and to de- 
termine the relationship be- 
tween the function of the col- 
lagens and chemistry. 

Bell has been a member of 
the Millsaps faculty since 
1960. He received his BA de-

gree from William Jewell Col- 
lege and his MS from the Uni- 
versity of New Mexico and 
has completed further work 
at the University of Colorado 
and the University of Missis- 
sippi. 

Currently serving as presi- 
dent of the Mississippi Acad- 
emy of Science, he has been 
state chairman of the Out- 
standing Biology Teachers of 
America program of the Na- 
tional Association of Biology 
Teachers and chairman of 
district science fairs. He has 
directed several NSF grant 
programs and has received 
several research awards. 

He belongs to numerous 
professional societies and has 
had more than 20 articles pub- 
lished in scientific journals. 



killed in it." Miss Sergio asked 
how, in view of such interna- 
tional political hypocrisy; 
could wc expect the Soviet 
Union to trust us in our treaty- 
making endeavors. 

The speaker expressed de- 
light over what she called "a 
great liberation of ideas" in 
the Communist countries. She 
attributed this partly to the 
fact that about eight million 
Western Europeans are now 
spending their vacations in 
Eastern Europe. "When eight 
million people can travel, 
there is no restraint on 
ideas," she said. 

Other Lectures 

Miss Sergio delivered two 
other lectures: one on "Faith 
and Atheism In Our Lives" 
and the o t h e r on "America, 
Its Friends and Foes and the 
Neutralists." 

The speaker's visit was 
made possible by the Dan- 
forth Foundation and the As- 
sociation of American Col- 



leges. Her background covers 
most of the major continents 
of the world. She was the first 
radio commentator in Europe 
and a trail blazer among 
women newscasters in the 
United States. 

A news release from the 
AAC said, "The vicissitudes 
of history which shaped her 
youth in her native Italy 
provided Lisa Sergio with a 
remarkable variety of experi- 
ences in such widely different 
fields as Roman archaeology 
and political analysis; being 
the official interpreter for a 
dictator (Mussolini) in Eu- 
rope and teaching sociology at 
a leading American universi- 
ty, editing an English literary 
weekly in Italy and editing an 
international newsletter in 
Vermont, U.S.A.; interview- 
ing the great and near-great 
all over Europe, much of 
Asia, the Middle East and 
North America. Most impor- 
tant, the vicissitudes of his- 



tory laid bare before her the 
dangers and evils of a totali- 
tarian government, compelling 
her to seek freedom in 
America at the risk of her 
life."

i,ikc Night Creatures 1 



Campus Dilema: Lack Of Commitment 



By SUE BARNES 

Seven a. m. 

The alarm goes off. 

Some mornings, conditioned 
like Dr. Pavlov's dog, my 
head retreats under the pil- 
low and I groan. I groan as I 
think about those students and 
professors to be faced today. 

Trapped in our often 
esoteric, scholarly c o m- 
munity, like a campus of 
Hoats, we become resigned to 
"objective criticism" which 
only evokes intellectual curi- 
osity from others. It is sad 
when we can only sound off 
without suggesting a feasible 
alternative — be it a social, 
economic, political, or theolog- 
ical question. It is beautiful 
to see the mark of enthusiasm 
among freshmen. Shrugging it 
off as niavete, others know it 
may soon be stifled. 

Caught By 'Isms' 
Caught by the wretched 
"isms" — skepticism, pseu- 
doism, cynicism, we observe 
fellow seekers of truth whose 
souls are slowly being eaten 
away by pernicious anemia. 
Shying away from genuine 
committment or involvement, 
we are strangling life's red 
corpuscles. 

Like night creatures afraid 
of the light, we escape— run 
and hide in the library stacks, 
our quiet apartments, dormi- 
tory rooms, on and off 
campus busyness, a vocabu- 
lary that places others in awe, 
or even behind a Cherry sprite 
in the grill with other bored 
Millsapians. 

In this because of the glar- 
ing inconsistency between the 
theoretical world and the 
world of action? 

Does our generation really 
distrust the word of anyone 
over 30? 

Artificial Envronment 

Why, of all places, must the 
classroom be such an artifi- 



cial environment? Of what 
value is any discipline if we 
cannot question its hypo- 
theses, laws, and principles, 
and prune the non-essential? 

Why are we studying and 
grasping material if we can- 
not get excited about it and 
apply it? An anonymous stu- 
dent has observed, "I am 
either passed or flunked, and 
altruistically." 

There will be little flower- 
ing in later life, if our pur- 
suits now are simply a means 
to an end, i. e., studying for 
comprehensive, memorizing 
for a GRE. 

Subjectivity Out 

Subjectivity has become the 



bane of science. We seem to 
give up on " interpersonal' 1 re- 
lations, finding that defend- 
ing the position of others, tak- 
ing on their identity, relating 
in depth, is all too painful and 
costly. We find a good cause 
only to discover there are a 
hundred more good causes. 

As humanists, disillusion- 
ment grasps us. 

Are community action, civil 
rights, tutoring, comprehen- 
sive enough to satisfy our 
hunger for involvement? 

Thus, we have spelled out 
the campus dilemna. Where 
do we go from here? 



$450 Cleared At 
WUS Gift Bazaar 

By SUE BARNES 

"A fabulous success" is what the co-chairmen of the 
World University Service drive termed the International 
Gift Bazaar, held here Dec. 16-18. 

According to Tom Matthews, one of the co-chairman, 
the project cleared $450, with over $1,000 worth of 
merchandise being sold. Exotic gifts from 23 foreign coun- 
tries were sold to Millsaps students and members of the 
Jackson community. 

Profits from the event will be sent to the World Uni- 
versity Service, an organization which provides help for 
self-help in the field of education. 

The first doorprize went to Mrs. George Brunson, a 
Millsaps student. Mrs. Brunson, whose purchase placed the 
sales over the $1,000 mark was awarded marble Egyptian 
bookends which were sent to the campus from the Con- 
sulate General of the United Arab Republic. The second 
doorprize went to Phil Converse, an admissions counselor 
here. 

At the close of the bazaar international travel posters 
used as decorations, were sold to ' first bidders " bring- 
ing approximately $50. 

Entertainment in the Coffee house at the bazaar was 
provided Friday and Saturday nights by John Henry Reid- 
er, Allen Bass, David Doggett, Joe Ellis, William Young 
Erwin Freeman, and Willie Wallace. 

The WUS drive is an annual event at Millsaps, but the 
International Gift Bazaar was a unique undertaking Mill- 
saps' contribution to WUS last year totalled $202 



Symposium: 'Hold The Election! I Want To Change Horses!" 




By JIM CARROLL 
Political Editor 

The tragic death of Carroll 
Gartin has thrown a new light 
on the Mississippi political 
scene for 1967. 

For one thing, it has made 
Ross Barnett even stronger, 
if that is possible. 

Just as important, William 
Winter, who had previously 
announced that he would seek 
the office of Lt. Governor, has 
announced his candidacy for 
the governorship. I had pre- 
viously supported William 
Waller, but with Winter's 
announcement, I find it nec- 
essary to change my stand. 
Better Qualified 

William Winter is much bet- 
ter known throughout the 
state. He is imminently more 
qualified than is Waller; and 
he can give the state the lead- 
ership that it needs in the last 
half of the sixties. He has a 
much better chance than Wai- 



By DIANNE PARTRIDGE 

On a typical Tuesday night 
at 7:30 in the Forum Room 
of the library, the familiar 
sound of the gavel can be 
heard as President Jerry 
Duck calls another Student 
Senate meeting to order. 

Attending any session of 
Senate will be representatives 
from each social organiza- 
tion, an independent from 
each dormitory, an independ- 
ent commuter, a married stu- 
dent, and delegates elected 
by the Student Body. They 
will complete an agenda con- 
sisting of announcements, 
committee reports, old and 
new business, and an open 
forum. 

Following the invocation by 
Chaplain Dan McKee and 
reading of the minutes by 
Secretary Leslie Jeanne 
Floyd, President Duck will 
launch the delegates on re- 
ports, discussions, and de- 
bates on matters ranging 
from revision of the Millsaps 
Student Association Constitu- 
tion to establishment of a stu- 
dent discount policy with lo- 
cal merchants. 

Projects 

The Committee on Constitu- 
tional Revisions, headed by 
Sen. John Williams, is rewrit- 
ing the Millsaps Constitution 
in order to delete outdated 
material, therefore making 
some sections more applica- 
ble to conditions existing in 
this school year. 

Sen. Joe Bailey is working 
with delegates from Hinds 



ler to beat Barnett— the elec- 
tion of Barnett would, I feel, 
be a tragedy which this state 
simply cannot afford at this 
time. 

••"illip-m Winter can use the 
help of everyone who wants to 
see Mississippi led by a man 
who is 'conservative, not re- 
actionary,' to paraphrase 
him. If you feel that you can 
help him, please get in touch 
with his campaign headquar- 
ters. 

Millsaps 'Liberal' 

In this my last column, I 
want to touch upon something 
that has been on my mind 
since I came to Millsaps four 
years ago. 

If you will recall, Millsaps 
used to have a reputation for 
being the most "liberal" col- 
lege in the state, and one of 
the most liberal in the south. 

I think that part of this re- 
sulted from the fact that the 
liberals were outspoken and 
thus got publicity; the con- 
servatives said little, and thus 
were given no publicity by the 
local press — a press which 
has long been engaged in dis- 
crediting this college in order 
to build up the Baptists' so- 
called "institution of higher 
learning" at Clinton. 

Things Are Changing 

Now, however, things at 
Millsaps are changing. I think 



Junior College, Mississip- 
pi College, and Belhaven Col- 
lege to arrange a ten per cent 
discount for students at cer- 
tain clothing stores, laundries, 
etc. They are working in con- 
nection with the Retail Mer- 
chants Association of Jack- 
son. 

Honor System 

Sen. Freddy Davis, as 
chairman of the Committee on 
Study of the Honor System, is 
working on instituting such a 
system at Millsaps. He and 
the members of his commit- 
tee have conceived the possi- 
bility of placing the Senior 
Class in charge of this new 
policy. Under the commit- 
tee's suggestions, the Honor 
System would be adopted in 
all classes on the 300 and 400 
level in all departments. 
Ideally, students would be 
asked to sign a pledge at the 
end of tests and outside work 
to verify that they have nei- 
ther given nor received aid. 
Students themselves will be 
allowed to take action on any 
violation of this code. 

Under Senator Dianne Mc- 
Lemore, the Committee on 
Cafeteria and Grill Improve- 
ments has already taken 
strides to better the facilities 
for movement of the lines, 
payment of board, and sup- 
plying of food. Music is being 
piped into the cafeteria dur- 
ing serving hours and the en- 
trances and exits to the ac- 
tual line have been reversed. 
Also, grill workers are to be 
in the dining area during 



one could safely say that the 
student body as a whole is 
much more conservative than 
it was four years ago. I think 
that this is fine, and I 
wouldn't want to change it. 

There was a time when the 
liberals had their day here, 
and I am sure that it will 
come again. But there is one 
aspect of the political at- 
titudes at Millsaps which re- 
mains with us always, it 
seems, no matter whether we 
be conservative or liberal. 

I am speaking of the atti- 
tude that everyone should 
agree with our own point of 
view. This is manifest in 
many conservatives by point- 
ing to those who hold a more 
or less liberal view with the 
attitude that they are "left 
wing", "socialist", or some 
other such unfavorable termi- 
nology. The liberal, on the 
other hand, is often guilty of 
referring to anyone who holds 
conservative views as "right 
wing", "reactionary", or "ig- 
norant. M 

Vicious Circle 

Neither of t h e s e attitudes 
has any effect on the person 
or persons to whom they are 
applied other than to drive 
them further into the camp 
in which they find themselves. 
No one likes to be told that his 
view is all wrong. 

When he is ridiculed or 



crowded times to keep the ta- 
bles cleared. 

The Student Senate initi- 
ated a Travel Board in the 
Union to help students find 
rides or riders to various des- 
tinations. 

In the near future the Pre 
Law Club will sponsor a Mock 
Gubernatorial election under 
direction of the Student Sen- 
ate. 

Free Speech Alley 

Sen. Ronnie Greer has sub- 
mitted a proposal to begin a 
Free Speech Alley at free pe- 
riod of Tuesdays. Weather 
permitting, two soapboxes 
will be placed at a strategic 
location on campus. Anyone 
wishing to expound on any 
controversial subject may 
mount the larger box. How- 
ever, in so doing, he puts him- 
self in a position to be chal- 
lenged by anyone mounting 
the smaller box. Topics can 
be campus issues, personal 
opinions, or challenges to cer- 
tain candidates in campus 
elections. These debates will 
be supervised to maintain or- 
der. 

Handles Problems 

The Millsaps Student Senate 
handles problems ranging 
from the choice of announcers 
for athletic events to com- 
plaints about the length of 
Christmas holidays. They 
make resolutions, revise con- 
stitutions, grant charters, en- 
dorse the Ford Foundation 
Drive, and look into the pos- 
sibility of absentee balloting 
for college students. Under 
the guidance of the efficient 
experienced members of the 
SEB, the Duck Administra- 
tion is definitely, to quote the 
P&W editor, "leaving no 
stones unturned this year and 
no issues untackled." 



cut off from those who be- 
lieve differently from him, he 
tends to become more defen- 
sive of his point of view and 
less tolerant of the other point 
of view. When this happens, 
he often tries the same tactic 
against those who are op- 
posed to his ideas, and a vi- 
cious circle is formed. 

As college students who are 
forming our attitudes for the 
rest of our lives, we need to 
be exposed to ideas other 
than our own. If we find dur 
ideas better to our liking, we 
should stand by them. But if 
the new ideas are superior to 
our own, or are more to our 
liking, we should not be afraid 
to change. Whether we remain 
the same, or whether we 
change positions, we will 
know why we believe what we 
do, and we will be better able 
to express and to defend our 
point of view when it is chal- 
lenged. 

Both Elements Needed 

A strong conservative ele- 
ment is, I believe, as impor- 
tant to the well-being of the 
United States as is a strong 
liberal movement. They must 
not be isolated from one an- 
other, lest an unbreachable 
gap be formed between the 
two. 

If there is any one thing 
that I would hope to see at 
Millsaps after 1 am gone, it 



is strong liberal and conserv- 
ative elements, sharing mu- 
tual respect for one another. 

If Millsaps is to continue 
along the lines of excellence 
which it has gone in the past, 
we need this. If it does not, 
we run the risk of becoming 
much like many of our state 
institutions, where an opinion 
which is different from that 
shared by the majority is met 
with ostracism, suppression, 
or banishment from the social 
sphere of the campus. 1 am 
hopeful and confident that this 
will never happen at Millsaps.

Senate Announces 
Two New Programs 



By DIANNE PARTRIDGE 

SEB President Jerry Duck 
has announced the initiation 
of two new programs which 
will have a marked effect on 
Millsaps eampus life. 

At the Jan. 10 meeting of 
the Student Senate an execu- 
tive committee was set up to 
provide independent students 
with information about intra- 
murals, special occasions, and 
campus activities. 

The committee is not to or- 
ganize those students not af- 
filiated with a social organi- 
zation, but merely to inform. 

The chairman of this com- 
mittee will be appointed for 
second semester by the SEB, 
but a student body election in 
the spring will decide the 
members of the committee 
and the chairman for next 
year. 

Holding a position in Stu- 
dent Senate, the chairman 
will be backed by a woman's 
Intramurals leader, a men's 
intramurals leader, a secre- 
tary, and a special occasions 
leader. 

Organize Teams 
Intramurals leaders will be 
responsible for the independ- 
ent's teams in all sports. 
They will organize the teams, 
set practice times, and see 
that they know about sched- 
uled games. Special occasions 
leader will head activities for 
independents during Home- 
coming, Song Fest, and other 
unusual events. 



The second program in- 
volves eating arrangements. 

The Committee on Cafeteria 
and Grill Improvements has 
submitted a proposal to Stu- 
dent Senate which may alter 
permanently, or at least 
temporarily, the manner in 
which students obtain their 
food. 

The new plan consists of 
two parts, the first of which 
will go into effect next se- 
mester. A record will be kept 
by cafeteria and grill workers 
on the number of boarding 
plans tickets and meal books 
purchased each month, the 
actual number of boarding 
plan meals eaten and the cash 
value of these, the cash value 
of meal books used in the grill 
and cafeteria, the purchases 
made in cash at each meal, 
and the average number 
served at the morning, noon, 
and night meals. 

On-campus, first semester 
freshmen of 1967-68 will be re- 
quired to eat on a five-day 
boarding plan consisting of 
meals from Sunday night to 
Friday noon. All sophomores, 
juniors, seniors, and transfers 
may choose which plan they 
prefer. 

The final step in this long- 
range project will be a com- 
parison of all the records kept 
during second semester of 
1966-67 and the efficiency of 
the five-day boarding plan. 



Students Pledge 
Over $13,000 

Over $13,000 has been 
pledged by members of the 
student body in response to 
the student campaign for 
the Ford Foundation Drive. 

The drive officially end- 
ed Jan. 16, after a time ex- 
tension of one week. Before 
the extension, a total of 
$12,857 had been raised 
through pledges and pay- 
ments, with contributions 
coming from 410 members 
of the Millsaps student 
body. 

Team members working 
in the student drive ap- 
proached students individ- 
ually for solicitations.

INTERNATIONAL TRADE SEMINAR — A 
group of Millsaps international relations stu

Bavender and Japan's Consul General, Maokazu 
Okuda, make in important point at one of 
three seminars conducted in New Orleans 
recently. The Mississippi Marketing Council

the group of political science students on a 
field trip to New Orleans. The students visited 
the International House, heard two 
reneral discuss the effect of

Trade Mart and toured the port aboard the 
President. Bavender chose New Orleans for 
a study of international trade because it is 
one of the major sea ports of the world, 
consular representatives of more than 40 coun- 
tries are located there, and the city itself is 
extremely sensitive to international trade. At 
the International Trade Mart the visitors heard 
the consul general of Japan; C. M. Werck,

System Of Draft 
Selection Unfair 



By WILLIAM F. JORDON 

(A Veteran— not subject to 
Draft) 

Whether we like to admit it 
or not, our lives are pretty 
well limited by rather definite 
patterns of behavior. In other 
words, there are certain ac- 
cepted ways of doing things 
that have been passed down 
to us from past generations. 

The most important of these 
often become civil and reli- 
gious laws and are interpre- 
ted by us to comply with our 
present day conditions. How- 
ever, every generation bucks 
against some set patterns of- 
ten changing them for more 
appropriate use during their 
generation. 

Concern Over Legislation 

There is much concern in 
the United States today re- 
garding draft. For example, 
our particular section of the 
country is much concerned 
about certain legislation now 
being drafted in Washington 
that could change our entire 
social make-up. There is also 
much concern among most 
young American male stu- 
dents regarding the use of the 
Military Draft. 

It seems that there are 
many injustices involved in 



the type of selection of people 
(mostly students) now being 
used by the Draft Boards. 
Realizing that there are 
many difficulties in trying to 
select so many people, it still 
seems that the present sys- 
tem is entirely unfair to the 
typical young American male 
student. 

Omnipotent Board 

These students, already get- 
ting a good start in develop- 
ing a life useful both to them- 
selves and their country, find 
themselves subjected to an 
omnipotent board capable of 
bringing their own plans to a 
sudden halt and virtually forc- 
ing them to pursue a life 
which may very well handi- 
cap their way of thinking for 
the rest of their lives. 



Therefore, I think the gov- 
ernment would be wise to re- 
evaluate the role of students, 
stop 4 'bugging" them, and 
give them a chance to develop 
themselves and keep the Unit- 
ed States and the rest of the 
Free World ahead of China, 
Communism, or whatever 
they say we are fighting 
through technological advance 
and creative thinking in all 
fields of endeavor.

SPECTATOR

P&W Sports Writer 

This semester's intramural 
athletics came to a close as 
the Kappa Sigs defeated the 
Kappa Alphas 44-41 for the 
Monty Invitational Pre-Christ- 
mas Basketball Men's Intra- 
murals Basketball Tourna- 
ment. 

The Kappa Sigs, behind the 
even-scoring of Joe Bennett, 
George Williamson, and Gene 
Horton, edged the KA's out of 
the championship. The Sigs, 
trailing 28 - 17 at halftime, 
staged a third quarter rally 
to narrow the gap to five 
points. 

In the final period the Kap- 
pa Sigs came from behind to 
grab the lead for the first 
time in the game and held it 
to gain a three-point victory. 

The KA's j u m p e d off to 
their commanding first peri- 
od lead behind the scoring of 
Billy C r o s w e 1 1 and Steve 
Franks, both of whom collect- 
ed seven points in that quar- 
ter. However, the KA's could 
not continue the pace and fell 
to defeat via Kappa Sigma 
rally. 

An important factor in the 
game was the defense of the 
Kappa Sigmas which held the 
KA's scoring leader, Joe 
Bailey, to six points. 

Following the Sigs and KA's, 
the Lambda Chi's finished 
third with a 3-2 record fol- 
lowed by the M-Club, Kappa 
Sig No. 2, and Pi Kappa Al- 
pha No. 1, each with 2-2 rec- 
ords. 

The Kappa Sigs were led 
the entire tournament by 
Frank McEachern, their lead- 
ing scorer and rebounder with 
46 points for an 11.5 average 
through four games. 

The KA's were led by the 
tourney's second high scorer 
Joe Bailey with 67 points for 
an 11 point average in six 
games. 

Tournament scoring honors 
went to freshman Lambda 
Chi Larry Goodpastor who led 



Polly # s

the tournament with 86 points 
and a 17.2 average in five 
games. Goodpaster also came 
up with the h i g h, e s t single 
game total of 25 points in his 
game against the Kappa Sig- 
ma No. 2 team. 

The tournament was 
marked by many outstanding 
individual efforts. Wayne Up- 
church of the KA No. 2 team 
had the second highest aver- 
age in the league with 15 
points per game. 

Bill Mones of the Kappa 
Sigma No. 2 led his team 
with 52 points and a 13 point 
average. Jimmy Williams of 
PiKA No. 1 led his team with 
50 points and a 12.5 average. 

The team high game 
was held by the M-Club in 
their 94-13 rout of the PiKA 
No. 2 team. The highest team 
average was held by the 
champion Kappa Sigma* with 
a 53.7 average. The Lambda 
Chi's and KA's followed with 
50 point averages. 

The PiKA No. 2 team scored 
the least points with a 14 
point average. 

This semester in women's 
intramurals the Phi Mu's 
went undefeated to walk away 
with the women's volleyball 
championship. The champion 
Phi Mu's won eight straight 
ball games behind the fine 
teamwork shown by true 
champions. 

Throughout the season the 
Phi MU's were led by the 
tremendous all-around play of 
Susan Lumm. Susan's over- 
hand serve sent many an op- 
ponent to an early defeat as 
she would often score 15 
straight points before the op- 
ponents had a chance at the 
ball. However, Susan's ability 
was not limited to offense 
alone as she was the bulwark 
of the Phi Mu defense. 

Also this season the Lamb- 
da Chi's c o p p e d the Men's 
Volleyball Championship with 
a 7-1 record. Leading the 
Lambda Chi's to the cham- 
pionship were all-stars Jerry 
Duck and David Powers. 

Representing the Kappa Al- 
pha's (6-2) were all - stars 
Tommy Davis and John Ryan. 
From the third place Kappa 
Sigma's (5-3) were all-stars 
Bill Lax and Jerry Sheldon. 



The season was marked by 
the equal strength of the top 
three teams who battled for 
the championship up through 
the last week of the season. 
During the last week, the 
Lambda Chi's clinched the ti- 
tle by avenging an earlier loss 
to the Kappa Sigs. 

Focus now turns to the reg- 
ular intramural basketball 
season which will begin the 
second week in February. Al- 
so a B-Team league may be 
added to the league to offer 
complete participation to all 
students. 

Official congratulations are 
due Hugh Gamble in his ef- 
forts in initiating intramural 
soccer to the Millsaps cam- 
pus this year, and to all the 
various champions this se- 
mester.

A very interesting book is 
on the market now entitled 
"Guinnes Book of World 
Records" and if anyone hasn't 
at least flipped through one, 
the time taken would be welJ 
worth while. 

This book has world records 
of almost anything imagina- 
ble. It lists systematically 
records on the fastest, slow- 
est, highest, shortest, strong- 
est, oldest, newest, etc. 

Here are just some of the 
many records listed in the 384 
page illustrated novelty: 

The tallest man that ever 
lived stood 8-11.1. The tallest 
woman that ever lived stood 
7-6%. 

The most children ever pro- 
duced by any woman was 69, 
in 27 confinements. 

The longest moustache in 
the world today is 102 inches 
and cost $36.40 per year in 
upkeep. 

The last public guillotining 
occurred at Versailles, near 
Paris, at 4:30 a. m. June 17, 
1939 before a large throng of 
people. 

The only man to survive 
three attempts to hang him 
was John Lee at Exeter Jail, 
Devonshire, Eng. He was 
guilty of murder and it seems 
that three attempts to get the 
trap open failed. His sentence 
was commuted to life in im- 
prisonment but he was soon 
released. 

The worst year for lynch- 
ings in the U.S., was in 1901 
when 130 lynchings occurred 
(105 Negroes and 25 whites) 
1952 was the first year with no 
reported cases. 

The largest Nudist camp in 
the world was that at rile du 
Levant in southern France, 
which had up to 15,000 adeptes 
before it was largely taken 
over for defense purposes by 
the French Navy in 1965. 



Well, basketball season is 
about half over and our Ma- 
jors are still hunting for that 
first win. But that (M4 record 
(not including the games that 
were to be played Tuesday 
and tonight) really doesn't 
show a true picture or tell 
the entire story of the season. 

In game after game the Ma- 
jors have canned more field 
goals than the opponents only 
to beat by enemy free throws. 
Coach Montgomery expressed 
confidence that the Majors 
would not only come close but 
win a few on the second time 

The record for gas economy 
ever recorded is 168.47 miles 
on one gallon in a 1924 two 
seater Chevrolet coupe. 

The longest recorded time 
spent under a shower is 60 
hours. 

The greatest altitude from 
which anyone has bailed out 
without a parachute and sur- 
vived is 22,000 feet (approx 
four miles). 

The duration record for 
walking on one's hands is 871 
miles accomplished in 1900 by 
Johann Huslinger, who, in 55 
daily 10 - hour stints, aver- 
aged 1.76 m.p.h. from Vienna 
to Paris. 

The world record for guz- 
zling 52 oz. (2.67 pints) of beer 
is 7.9 seconds by Leo Williams 
at the University of Queens- 
land, in May, 1961 and the 
record for 2 liters (3.62 U.S. 
pints) is 11 seconds by J. H. 
Cochrane in Harry's New 
York Bar, Paris, on June 26, 
1932. 

The largest number of peo- 
ple ever killed in a plague 
was 75,000,000 who kicked the 
bucket in the black plague 
between 1347-51. 

The fattest man ever to live 
weighed (unofficial) weighed 
1,132 pounds. He fell through 
the floor of his log cabin one 
day and died of a heart at- 
tack. 

The most expensive car 
ever built (it took seven years 
to build) cost $150,000, a 
Darin-Di Dia 150. 

The most massive single is- 
sue of a newspaper was the 
"New York Times" of Sun- 
day, Oct. 17, 1965. It com- 
prised of 15 sections with a 
total of 926 pages, including 
1,200,000 lines of advertising. 
Each copy weighed 7 lbs. 14 
oz. and sold for 30 cents. 

The longest overdue book 
was found by Mr. Frederick 
Smith in Bishop's Stortford, 
Herfordshire, Eng. The ac- 
cumulated fines were esti- 
mated to by $1,540. 

The most costly punctuation 
error of all time was reported 
in Nov., 1962 when the omis- 
sion of a hyphen from the 
directions transmitted to an 
$18,000,000 U. S. Venus probe 
rocket necessitated its de- 
struction.

around in the latter half of 
the schedule. 

Coach Montgomery says 
that he is changing back to a 
zone defense. He said that the 
man-to-man which had pre- 
viously had been employed 
was yielding too many points. 

He also reported that ball 
handling mistakes were cost- 
ing the Majors plenty of 
points. Bad passes at key 
points in the games are often 
turning points. 
RECRUITING PROGRESS 

Coach Davis reported the 
signing of nine prospects for 
the 1967 football season. 

Buddy Bartling, son of 
coach Doby Bartling who had 
the last successful football 
team at Millsaps until Harper 
Davis took the reigns, will don 
a purple and white uniform 
next year. Buddy, a Murrah 
graduate, will join Mike Co- 
ker and Ben Graves who 
signed with Millsaps after out- 
standing season^ with Murrah 
last year. 

Ronnie Grantham, a half- 
back from Crystal Springs of 
the South Division of the Lit- 
tle Dixie Conference, has also 
chosen Millsaps as his No. 1 
pick to play college ball. Ron- 
nie's brother, Larry, plays 
with the New York Jets of 
the American Football League 
indicating that the younger 
certainly has the potential of 
blooming into a first class 
small college gridster. 

Jim Bolin, an Okalona High 
School graduate, has also 
signed with the Majors and 
will probably do most of his 
playing from a tight end post. 
Jim's brother, Booky, was an 
Ole Miss great and is now (or 
was until the season ended) 
playing for the New York 
Giants of the National Foot- 
ball League. Jim served his 
freshman duty at Ole Miss 
and should make a big con- 
tribution to the '67 squad. 

The Majors will also have 
the services of Donald Young' 
a halfback, who graduated 
from Inverness High. He also 
has the advantage of having 
played a couple of years of 
junior college ball at Delta 
JC. 

Gary Dickerson, a quarter- 
back from McComb, has also 
been signed. He played junior 
college football at Southwest 
and with the graduation of 
Danny Neely coach Davis will 
be looking long and hard for 
a capable replacement. 

A pair of gridsters from 
HiUcrest High in Memphis, 
Tenn. have also been inked. 
Rusty Boshers, a 6-2, 190- 
pound tackle, and Randy Wil- 
liams, an end, will come out 
in the fall. 

Another end, Pete Allison, 
who's most recent football ac- 
tivity was spent at the United 
States Naval Academy in 
Anapolis, Md., has also inked 
a football grant. 

RAH SIGS 

Congratulations go out to 
the Kappa Sigs who won the 
Coach Montgomery tourna- 
ment via a 44 to 41 vic- 
tory over the Kappa Alphas.

KA's had the entire campus 
totally and hopelessly fooled 
but Mr. Carroll has shown 
them the light — the truth 
about the success of Kappa 
Alpha on the Millsaps 
campus. 

Now that we can no longei 
fool all the people all the 
time, our only hope is to go 
on fooling some of the peo-le 
so that we will not dry up 
and "blow" away with the 
wind. 

I have been almost unable 
to live with myself these last 
four years because of the hoa> 
we were perpetrating on th< 
boys we have pledged, bu 
now that the air has beer 
cleared, I can once a g a i r 
sleep nights. My only regret 
is that you did not hold your 
expose until after we had 
initiated our pledges, for now 



they will all want to drop their 
pledgeships ! 

P.S. Someone told me that 
Mr. Carroll's fraternity was 
about to get a loan to re- 
model the house. That's 
great! Oh by the way, have 
you heard? We're planning a 
$40,000 addition to our new 
house in the very near future 
and our architect has assured 



us that the plans will be 
ready by rush next fall ! ! !

MILLSAPS COLLEGE, JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI 



FEBRUARY 9, 1967 




ADVISING STUDENTS — Speaking* on "The Essence of Our 
Nation," Governor Paul B. Johnson addressed Millsaps stu- 
dents, February 2, in chapel. Governor Johnson expressed 
his faith in today's youth by acknowledging their ability to 
create a prosperous, thriving nation. 

Student Senate Passes 
Controversial Measure 



By SAM RUSH 

-Tuesday, December 10, the 
Millsaps Student Senate 
passed what may be its most 
controversial issue of the fall 
semester when it recommend- 
ed to the administration the 
adoption of a compulsory five- 
day boarding plan for all 1967 
in-coming freshmen. 

The purpose of the action 
is to create a study plan 
which could lead to lower 
prices, better food, or some 
other improvement in the 
cafeteria operation. Varied 
and vigorous student reaction 
met this proposal. 

Probably the most promi- 
nent sentiment was, "I am 
against it," expressed before 
the entire issue had been ex- 
plained. In a matter of a few 
minutes after the Senate re- 
cessed, rumor had it that pe- 
titions were being circulated 
which demanded reconsidera- 
tion. After a few days most 
of the furor had died down to 
the normal daily complaints 
about the food. Some of the 
more avid opponents, howev- 
er, maintained their dissatis- 
faction and investigated fur- 
ther. When this plan was in- 
troduced into the Senate, it 
was reported that the cafe- 



action must be taken to reme- 
dy the situation. However, 
conflicting reports soon re- 
sulted and cast the issue into 
confusion. 

President Graves in his last 
chapel address of the term, 
hinted that concrete steps 
may be taken in the imme- 
diate future to change the 
present system. He stated 
that almost all other small or 
even large private schools 
have a compulsory boarding 
plan and that the cafeteria 
program here is economically 
unsound. This suggests that 
changes are at least being 
considered on the administra- 
tive level. 

A short conversation with 
Mrs. Elmer Russell, head of 
the cafeteria operation, re- 
pealed that she was interested 
in the possibilities of either a 
five-day or twenty-one meal 
plan. She believed that such a 
plan will give her more guid- 
ance in relation to the num- 
ber of meals to prepare each 
day and thus cut out a loss 
in preparing too much food. 
Also, she felt that the at- 
tempts to offer a good variety 
of different meats, vegeta- 
bles, and desserts, was a 
main factor in the price of 
food. She seemed interested 



Gov. Johnson Addresses 
Millsaps Student Assembly 



By MARY JANE MARSHALL 
MANAGING EDITOR 

Governor Paul B. Johnson 
advised Millsaps students that 
"the mantle of world leader- 
ship rests upon America and 
very soon that mantle will be 
wrapped around your shoul- 
ders." 

Speaking on the topic "The 
Essence of Our Nation," Gov. 
Paul Johnson of Mississippi 
addressed the Millsaps Col- 
lege student body February 
2. In advising students that 
world leadership will soon de- 
pend on them, he said, "I ask 
you to seize eagerly that bur- 
den and that glory." 

Johnson admitted he might 
be slightly prejudiced con- 
cerning Millsaps College, as 
his father, the late Governor 
Paul B. Johnsonn, was an 
alumnus of Millsaps. The Gov- 
ernor stated that he is 
"proud of Millsaps College. M 
Referring to t he fact that 
many colleges and universi- 
ties have come to be known 
as "Manufacturing plants for 
diplomas," he told students 
that Millsaps has no such 
reputation. 

Concerning young people to- 
day, Gov. Johnson said that 
our young people of today are 
not nearly as radical as when 
he was at Ole Miss, adding 
that today's youth are much 
more discrete. 

Johnson stated that faith 
constitutes a great sign for 
today, saying, "If the spirit 
of America could be distilled, 
could be reduced to a single 
substance, that substance 
would be faith." "I am con- 
vinced that you — who are the 

in the s t u d e n t s, but com- 
mented, "You don't seem to 
please the students and the 
administration at the same 
time." 

Mr. Pete Wood, business 
manager for the school, fa- 
vored the proposal and 
worked with Diane McLe- 
more's committee in prepar- 
ing the report to the Senate. 
He felt that if the students 
pay for the meals, they will 
eat them, better food can be 
prepared, and more waste 
eliminated. The five-day plan 
covers meals from supper 
Sunday through lunch Friday. 
This allows students the 
choice of eating anywhere 
during the weekend without 
loss of money. The program 
to be effected next year, if 
it is approved by the admin- 
istration, would consist of this 
five-day plan for all entering 
freshmen. A study will be 
made of the statistics from 
the f i r s t two months of the 
school year and then future

hope of the future—will leave 
these halls to enter the bat- 
tle that goes through life, say- 
ing in your hearts and to each 
other *I believe* rather than 
'I wonder,' " he added. 

Emphasizing the fact that 
this nation was created by 
brave men and women who 
had faith in God and man, 
Johnson said "pride and the 
purpose of our people has 
been the greatest driving 
force in the history of human- 
ity." He expressed his belief 
that though there will always 
be opposition and critics who 
shun the American ideal of 
individualism, "answers come 
from individuals. . independ- 
ent individuals who consider 
problems calmly and who 
furnish thoughtful and con- 
structive answers." Making 
an appeal to the youth, he 
stressed that we today are 
"not in the bleak twilight of 
individualism— we can well be 
in the brilliance of its morn- 
ing," adding that we should 
let past experiences guide us 
in the future. 

Directly addressing the 
youth, the Governor ex- 
pressed his faith in the capa- 
bility of today's youth to pro- 
duce great prosperity, saying, 
"Yours may be the gen- 
eration that achieves peace 
on earth. . . In conclusion 
he stressed that the future of 
all "as individuals, as Missis- 
sippians, as Americans is as 
deep as the ocean, as high 
as the sky." 

Millsaps' President Graves 
introduced Gov. Johnson as a 
man "who can rise to the oc- 



casion," including the fact 
that Johnson rose to office at 
a critical point. Born in Hat- 
tiesburg Mississippi, Johnson 
attended the University of 
Mississippi. In his sophomore 
year Johnson was elected 
president of the Ole Miss stu- 
dent body, a rare honor for a 
sophomore. 

After completing his educa- 
tion, Johnson entered law 
practice. When war came he 
joined the Marine Corps. Gov. 
Johnson has remained active 
in veteran affairs and was 
the recipient of the Distin- 
guished Service Award. He 
later resumed his law prac- 
tice. 

In April of 1963, Johnson 
became a candidate for gov- 
ernor and on January 21, 1964, 
he was inaugurated as the 
54th governor of Mississippi.

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS

PURPLE & WHITE 



Feb. 9, 1967 



Millsaps University? 



Following the example of so hard- 
working and dedicated a journalist as 
Miss Marie Smith is at best difficult. 
But it is with open arms that a new 
Purple and White accepts the chal- 
lenge offered. The challenge is inter- 
twined with a new spirit that has over- 
taken the Millsaps campus. 

Our college is moving toward a destiny 
of excellence. In the process it hopes to 
become something more than an oasis 
in a desert of educational unconcern; it 
strives to be a fountainhead of learning. 
The symbol of this striving is our dy- 
namic young university president, Dr. 
Benjamin Graves. 

University? Typographical error? No, 
it is simply that the enthusiasm of this 
man is contagious. It allows one to dis- 
regard the technical limitations of defi- 
nition and refer to the ineffable some- 
thing that is Millsaps as a university 
rather than as a college. The Johns 
Hopkins University catalogue, in answer- 
ing a question about the essential nature 
of a university, replied with a description 
that is easily applicable to an emerging 
sense of excellence here at Millsaps: 

The moment a man or a woman en- 
ters a university, he senses the challenge 
and the opportunities of the new life. He 
begins to feel the urge to strike out on 



his own; to venture into new fields of 
thought, new areas of knowledge. And he 
is given the freedom to do so. 

"Life at a university for a man who 
lives it to the full becomes an endless 
voyage of exploration. It is an endless 
process of discovery. And it is an endless 
exercise of freedom. 

The university student learns how 
prejudices — preconceived notions — c a n 
shackle a man, and he learns to liberate 
himself from their chains. He learns to 
base his judgments on facts, approached 
with an open mind. And thus he discov- 
ers true freedom — freedom that breeds 
responsibility. It is freedom of the high- 
est kind. 

Exploration, discovery, and freedom, 
each step leading naturally to the next; 
this is the university process. And this 
is the opportunity that awaits the uni- 
versity student. 

This, too, is the opportunity awaiting 
the Purple and White as a voice of the 
university student. Freedom that 
breeds responsibility will be our theme. 
The torch that illuminates the way to 
this freedom has been passed. If the 
glow from that flame burns just a bit 
brighter a year from now, we will con- 
sider our job well done. 



Winter For Our Discontent? 



Chapel programs two years ago in- 
cluded speakers such as Frank Smith, 
Hazel Brannon Smith, and others active- 
ly involved in Mississippi politics. It was 
in one such program that we first heard 
William Winter. He comes again to the 
Millsaps campus this week. 

While we were no less enthralled by 
the idealism and vigor of this states- 
man than were two past editors, we 
nevertheless refrain from offering an 
opinion on his political future at this 

Prospects On The 
Governor's Race 



By LEE MAKAMSON 

Stricken of his seniority and 
refusing to participate in fu- 
ture Democratic caucuses, 
Rep. John Bell Williams has 
returned to Raymond where 
he is expected .shortly to an- 
nounce his candidacy for the 
governorship. His loss of sen- 
iority came as a result of his 
support in 1964 for Republi- 
can Barry Goldwater. 

Considered the greatest 
danger to moderates* hope of 
electing William F. Winter, 
Williams is a strong conser- 
vative and has begun to 
monopolize on the national 
Demcratic party action 
against him representing it 
as a blow to all "Mississippi 
Democrats". His conserva- 
tive politics (he is ranked 80% 
favorable to Americans for 
Constitutional Action) may 
clash with Ross Barnett's 
candidacy, but Ol' Ross is 
getting on in years (he is 69) 
and few will forget the defi- 
cit he bequested to the state 
in 1963. A Baptist and a grad- 
uate of the Jackson School of 
Law. Williams has served in 
the House since the Eightieth 



Congress and was reelected 
with little opposition (only the 
Mississippi Freedom Demo- 
cratic Party candidate Mrs. 
Emma Sanders) in his Third 
District last November. 

State moderates— a growing 
Negro vote, labor, and the 
Young Democrats— would like 
to see William F. Winter as 
the next governor. Winter, 
presently the Secretary of the 
Treasury, is known for the 
abolishment of his own office 
of the Tax Collector in 1964 
and for his stand on "respon- 
sible conservatism". A grad- 
uate of the University of Mis- 
sissippi Law School and 
originally from Grenada, Win- 
ter appeals to more progres- 
sive minds in the State who 
will probably remain silent in 
their support at least for the 
first primary, in order not to 
frighten away other voters. 

Among the other an- 
nounced candidates, William 
L. Waller, presently the Dis- 
trict Attorney for the 7th. Dis- 
trict, seems to be running 
strongly — especially for a 
man so little known. But his 
support (if it materializes) 



time. The praise offered in an editorial 
or a news report of his appearance are 
but pale shadows of the real worth of 
this dedicated Mississippian. 

In an era of appeals to raw emotion- 
alism, in an age of political amorality, 
it is with renewed faith in man that one 
listens to Mr. Winter. It would be ad- 
visable for every Millsaps student with 
even the vaguest interest in the future of 
Mississippi to sit in colloquy at the feet 
of this master of the wierd forld of Mis- 
sissippi politics. — H.E.C. 

Opportunities 
Open In 
Peace Corps 

Graduate students, includ- 
ing former Peace Corps Vol- 
unteers, will have a chance to 
conduct field work leading to 
a Ph.D. while also helping the 
Peace Corps learn more about 
itself under a new program 
recently announced by Direc- 
tor Jack Vaughn. 

must come from Hinds Coun- 
ty where both Williams and 
Winter have strong backing. 
The Mississippi Freedom 
Democratic Party may op- 
pose State Democrats in the 
primaries; but based upon re- 
- turns from last Novembers' 
election the votes may not be 
sufficient in the first primary 
and could be decisive in the 
second. 

Rumors have it that if Wil- 
liams emerges as the Demo- 
cratic nominee, moderate 
groups may turn to a Republi- 
can. (That is the way it's done 
in Texas). Suffering from the 
November loss of the Repub- 
lican Representative, it will 
be interesting to see who is 
selected to oppose the Demo- 
cratic nominee in the regular 
election. The most obvious 
possibilities are Rubel Phil- 
lips and Prentiss Walker.

Essay On Man 



By JIM WAIDE 

Through the ages man has 
been a doubter. He has asked 
himself questions about the 
world and about the people 
that surround him. Today's 
college student is no different. 
He, too, asks questions. He, 
too, wonders about things. 

He wonders why it is that a 
nation with 67r of the world's 
population and 7% of the 
world's land mass owns 607r 
of its wealth. 

He wonders why it is that 
at a time when a majority of 
the world s people are starv- 
ing, Americans are taking 
metrecal. 

He wonders why it is that 
leaders of nations who start 
the wars never have to fight 
them themselves. 

He wonders why it is that 
"increased automation never 
throws government workers 
out of jobs." 

He wonders why it is that 
today's atheist can not con- 
ceive of a "second birth" but 
sees nothing miraculous about 
the first. 

He wonders why we Ameri- 
cans refuse to use poisoned 
gas on our enemies but are 
not reluctant to choke our 
children with cigarette 
smoke. 

He wonders why our laws 
forbid murder by individuals 
but allow our courts to prac- 
tice it freely. 



He wonders whether his 
playing football is really 
worth the pain and sweat. 
(Then he looks down at his 
younger brother's admiring 
face and knows that it is.) 

He wonders whether his 
marriage will be one out of 
the every four that ends in 
divorce. 

He wonders whether all 
those things he was told in 
Sunday School are really true, 
or, whether, like the Santa 
Claus fantasy, they've been 
"pulling his leg" about this 
"religious stuff" also. 

He wonders whether he'll be 
killed in Viet Nam. 

He wonders what girls real- 
ly look like beneath all that 
lipstick, hairspray, perfume, 
face powder, and cigarette 
smoke. 

He wonders what was so ob- 
solete about the days when 
baby sitters were called 
"Mommy and Daddy". 

He wonders what sort of 
magnificent paradise we 
would be living in had we 
used the billions we have 
spent on wars and destruction 
to enrich our society. 

He wonders what his grand- 
children will say about the 
world that he made. 

And he wonders whether 
he'll ever find answers to the 
questions he wonders about, 
or, whether life will baf- 
fle him as much when he 
leaves it as it does now.

Tryouts Planned 
For Production 
Of Greek Drama 



By MARK KEATING 

Tryouts for Sophocles' 
drama "Antigone'' will be 
held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. 
February 12, in the Christian 
Center. Mr. Lance Goss, of 
the Millsaps drama depart- 
ment, announced that a cast 
of nine women and fifteen to 
twenty men will be used. 

"Antigone" is the first au- 
thentic Greek tragedy to be 
planned for production at 
Millsaps. A masterpiece of 
world drama, "Antigone", 
dating from the fifth century 
B.C., has been called "the 
Romeo and Juliet' of Greek 
tragedy" by one critic. 

The play concerns the 
struggle of two brothers, 
Etescles and Polyneices, for 
control of the city of Thebes. 
It has been decided that the 
city will go to whichever 
brother can successfully de- 
feat the other. However, both 
are killed, and Creon, the 
former king, regains control 
of Thebes. He declares that 
Polynieces is to be denied 
burial and that anyone who 
dares to go against this law 
will be put to death. (The 
Greeks held the art of burial 
highly important for security 
in the future life. Those who 
died and were not buried 



would wander homeless 
throughout eternity.) Anti- 
gone, sister of Polynieces, de- 
termines that her slain broth- 
er will have a proper burial, 
and, in defiance of the law. 
she buries him. But Antigone 
is discovered and led away 
to death, her punishment for 
choosing to break the law of 
man rather than that of jus- 
tice. 

The Millsaps production of 
"Antigone" will be presented 
exactly as it would have been 
twenty-four centuries ago: the 
characters will wear authen- 
tic Greek costumes and there 
will be only one setting with 
no change of scenery. Both a 
male and a female chorus will 
be used to comment on the 
action throughout the play. 

Mr. Goss urges everyone in- 
terested in helping present 
this play to attend the try- 
outs. 




NEW SEMESTER NEW STAFF — Taking over the n ins of the PURPLE AND WHITE are eight 
new editors. Seated at the rear is Henry Chatham, editor, with Dianne Patridge, news editor, 
at his left. Charles Swoope (at left) will assume the post of amusements editor, Cindy Pharis 
will handle circulation, Mary Jane Marshall is the new managing editor, and Mary Ann 
McDonald will be in charge of making up the paper. Cheryl Barrett (left front* will contribute 
a weekly social column and Cheryl Rivers will take over the duties of feature editor.

Winter Schedules 
Return Appearance 



State Treasurer William 
Winter will address the Cir- 
cle K club, by invitation of 
this service club, and all in- 
terested students on Wednes- 
day, February 15, at 6:00 
P.M. 

This will be Winter's second 
visit to the Millsaps campus 
in recent years. Speaking in 
chapel two years ago, Winter 
stressed the need for a politic- 
ian to master the art of com- 
promise, not on matters of 
conscience, but on matters 00 
strategy. An ultimate goal 
could be reached more easily 
if one would be willing to 
yield on certain propositions. 

A native of Grenada, Mis- 
sissippi, Winter graduated 
from the Ole Miss Law School 
where he was chosen for 
membership in the Hall of 
Fame. While still in school, 
he was elected state repre- 
sentative. He served in this 
position until 1954 when Gov- 
ernor J. P. Coleman appoint- 
ed Winter state tax collector 
upon the death of the woman 
holding that office. 

Serving for the remainder 
of the term, Winter became 
a candidate for the office of 
state tax collector for a full 
four years and was elected. 
While holding this office, he 
worked to have it abolished, 




i 



an unnecessary salary to the 
tax collector and his duties 
were such that they could be 
handled by some other offi- 
cial. 

In 1963 Winter was elected 
state treasurer. He had 
planned to run for Lieutenant 
Governor on the ticket with 
Carroll Gartin in next year's 
election, but since Gartin s 
death, has announced his own 
candidacy for the governor- 
ship of the state of Mississip- 
pi. 

Winter will speak in Sulli- 
van-Harrell 132, the regular 
meeting place of Circle K, 
unless an over-flow crowd is 



the reins of the Purple and 
White. Their collective expe- 
rience and enthusiasm sym- 
bolize the new spirit of the 
paper, the Spirit of '67. 

Last semester's news edi- 
tor, Mary Jane Marshall, is 
this year's managing editor. 
While the managing editor of 
Biloxi s Hi - T i d e, Miss 
Marshall received the NSPA 
Journeyman Award for out- 
standing work in journalism. 
She was on the editing staff 
of a literary magazine and 
was one of the top ten schol- 
ars at Biloxi High School. 

Assuming the news editor- 
ship, Dianne Partridge brings 
her experience as editor-in- 
chief of the Meridian Wildcat 
to the Millsaps campus. 
Elected to an honor society 
for journalists Miss 
Patridge won the Delta Kap- 
pa Gamma Kappa Award for 
the highest scholastic average 
at Meridian High School. 

A staff member of the 
Jackson Daily News contin- 
ues as the Purple and White 
sports editor. David Davidson 
was the sports editor of his 
high school newspaper and 
wrote for the Mississippi 
State Reflector his freshman 
year. 

Amusements editor Charles 
Swoope also serves as the as- 
sistant editor of Stylus. This 
former news writer for the 



paper is now an assistant in 
the English department and is 
a participant in the Honors 
Program. Saving Kit Kat 
from virtual extinction 
Swoope recently became that 
honorary's first initiate in 
over two years. 

Cheryl Barrett, last semes- 
ter's feature editor, has taken 
charge of the society editor- 
ship. Miss Barrett was an 
editor for her high school 
yearbook, later being selected 
for membership in a journal- 
istic honor society. 

Despite the respectable ere 
dentials of the other staff 
members, Cheryl Rivers is 
the real prodigy of the group. 
Having been allowed to forego 
her senior year of high school 
in order to matriculate at 
Millsaps, Miss Rivers has 
been selected feature editor 
as a freshman. 

One of the finer debators to 
attend Millsaps in the last 
three years now serves as the 
Purple and White make-up 
editor. Mary Ann McDonald 
brings to her new post the ex- 
perience of having been 
make-up editor at Provine 
High School. 

Although the circulation 
manager may need no writing 
credentials, Cindy Pharis was 
the feature editor of the Me- 
ridian Wildcat and was a 
member of Meridian's jour- 



nalistic honor society. 

The eight aforementioned 
editors bear the real burden 
of publishing the Purple and 
White. To them this small 
amount of credit is certainly- 
due.

TRY TO IMAGINE— Between Murrah Hall and the library will be located the new Academic Complex. The building, to be begun in 1968, will house com- 
plete music and art departments, a large addition to the library, and a lecure center. The ground floor will consist of parking space for 140 automobiles. 
Designed by architect Thomas Briggs, the building has not yet been let for construction.

Traditions on this campus 
seem to be a thing of the 
past Around Millsaps there 
are many reminders of tradi- 
tions. One of these reminders, 
the bell located beside the li- 
brary, brings to mind many 
memories. 

Although little notice is 
made of the bell today, it was 
once a prominent campus fea- 
ture, calling students to the 
daily chapel service. Mrs. 
Goodman, authority on the 
bell, remembers hearing it 
ring while walking to school 
when she was a child. Mill- 
saps received the bell through 
efforts of Mrs. Goodman's 
family. Mr. T. H. Watkins, 
nephew of Dr. Alex Watkins, 
president of the college from 
1912 to 1923, learned that the 
Methodist church in Lake 
Charles, Louisiana, was to be 
torn down and that the bell 
was available to the school. 
He wrote Dr. Watkins and ar- 
rangements to have the bell 
brought to Millsaps were 
made. 

In later years when rivalry 
between Mississippi College 
and Millsaps was at its 
height, the bell was painted 
with slogans and even taken 
from its pedestal. 



The rivalry between Mill- 
saps and Mississippi College 
provided other hallowed tra- 
ditions. Once in the forties, 
upperclassmen from MC 
captured two Millsaps fresh- 
men, gave them Choctaw 
haircuts, painted them with 
war paint, and returned the 
two safely to the Millsaps 
campus. Playful malicious- 
ness between the two schools 
continued until it was neces- 
sary to remove Major Millsaps 
from the tomb next to the 
Christian Center. He is now 
safely resting in Greenwood 
cemetery. 

Other customs have also 
gone their ways. Freshmen 
are relieved that they no 
longer must scrub the steps 
of Sullivan-Harrell with tooth- 
brushes. No one beats drums 
or rings bells all night before 
homecoming. Girls do not 
wear beanies. The M bench, 
where students traditionally 
became pinned or engaged, is 
filled with leaves. And the 
bell tolls for no one. 



It is part of human nature 
to think wise things and do 
ridiculous ones — Anatole 
France (from Quote Maga- 
zine)

Baltz Announces 
Alterations For 
'67-68 Curriculum 

By CAROLYN CRECINK 

Dr. Richard Baltz, chair- 
man of the Department of 
r. conomics and Business Ad- 
ministration, announced 1967- 
68 curriculum changes in the 
department. These changes 
are designed to increase the 
number of courses offered 
and to aid prospective grad- 
uate students and business- 
men. 

Included in the changes in 

the combining of several 
courses so that students may 
^ke more electives in sociol- 
ogy, psychology, and political 
science. 

Another of the curriculum 
changes is the creation of an 
Internship Program for the 
department. This program, 
which will provide income for 
the student, is primarily to 
train the student and to give 
him the opportunity to gain 
experience with certain busi- 
ness and government institu- 
tions. 

Students will also have the 
opportunity to obtain a Bache- 
lor of Arts degree in account- 
ing, business administration, 
or economics. In order to ob- 
tain the degree, the require- 
ments will be increased to in- 
clude calculus and several 
courses which apply econom- 
ics theory and mathematics 
to later courses. 

Those rnajoring in account- 
ing will be taught by Certi- 
fied Public Accountants with 
teaching experience. New 
courses planned by the ac- 
counting department are a 
computer programming 
course, a new course for ac- 
counting majors who plan to 
take the CPA exams, and two 
night courses, a tax account- 
ing course and an auditing 
course. 

Baltz explained that the 
curriculum changes are being 
made because of the demands 
by the economics and busi- 
ness world of today.

CHIAROSCURO 



By CHARLES SWOOPE 



Don't ask me just now what 
the name of this column 
means or why it's named 
that. There is a time for all 
things, and explanation of 
such will follow in due sea- 
son. Anyway (as it were), this 
column is brand-new and ded- 
icated to the principle that 
there is something worth 
writing about at least once a 
week in the field of arts and 
letters and entertainment and 
such, even in Jackson, Mis- 
sissippi, even at Millsaps Col- 
lege. After all. we are a 

'c ultural oasis," in the words 
of our president, and if the 
oasis at times seems little 
more than a glorified water- 
ing - hole it is still better than 
nothing. Ergo these weekly 
words. 

My very first duty as arts 
and entertainments editor 
was an unusual one. This past 
Friday your faithful cor- 
respondent was required, by- 
virtue of his new position on 
this journal, to be in attend- 
ance at a press luncheon for 
a visiting actress (is movie 
star a better word?), who was 
in town publicizing her Latest 
film, soon to be shown at the 
Paramount here. The young 
lady's name is Joan Free 
man, the film is The Re- 
luctant Astronaut, and al- 
though she is not, I suppose, 
a terribly well-known actress, 
she is a charming and honest 
person, to say the least. When 
Henry Chatham told me I 
would be interviewing some- 
one who had co-starred with 
Elvis Presley (in Roustabout, 
I think), I immediately 
had horrific visions of some 
real-life equivalent of Minnie 
Pearl as a young ingenue, or 
worse. But such was not the 
case. Miss Freeman was a 
young thing who knew exact- 
ly what she was doing and 
why she was doing it. 

She has worked in scads"of 
TV shows and acted in not a 
few movies, among them The 



Fastest Guitar 
Alive, Come September, and 
guested on Bonanza, The Vir- 
gini tn, Outer Limits, and 
many others. By now you 
may have noticed that Miss 
Freeman's roles wouldn't ex- 
actly qualify her as the Sarah 
Bernhardt of our decade — but 
she herself has no illusions 
about her work. For her, it's 
just that — work, not art — and 
she seems to be intent on do 
ing her work well. Her candor 
was impressive, the luncheon 
on the Heidelberg Roof was 
fun, and a lovely time was 
had by all. Sad to say, I have 
a nagging suspicion that one 
wouldn't have a lovely time 
at The Reluctant Astronaut 
unless one were under 12 or 
of woefully slight intelligence. 
But that's the way the cookie 
crumbles. 

But, be that as it may, in 
the weeks to come there will 
be occasion to write of many 
things. Believe it or not, there 
are some books around that 
are worth reading, some 
plays worth attending, some 
music that affects more of 
you than your viscera — some- 
thing, somewhere that is 
reasonably serious and worth 
vour time, as well as mine. 
And so, in closing, I leave 
you with this questionnaire 
about your likes and dislikes 
in music and movies and 
books. It isn't a particularly 
grand questionnaire — all it 
does is show whether you pre- 
fer F e r 1 i n Husky to 
Beethoven, Hillbilly Nympho 
to The Sound and the Fury, 
and so on. Feel free to fill 
it out and put it in the P&W 
box. There is a place for your 
name— which isn't really nec- 
essary — but why not put it 
an>way, unless you find 
anonymity a virtue. Just 
check the sort of thing you 
prefer in each category, or 
write in variations if you pre- 
fer.

Johns Hopkins Surgeons 
Make Body Match Mind 



1 



By FRANKIE CHATHAM 

(Editor s note: On the Mill- 
saps campus, in the Jackson 
community, across the na- 
tion, discoveries are made in 
the world of science that 
change the destiny of man. 
This is the first in a series 
of articles attempting to ac- 
quaint the college student 
with these events.) 

Transsexual opera- 
tions were until recently a 
subject suitable only for such 
literary degenerates as the 
Police Gazeteer. Last week, 
however, Johns Hopkins Med- 
ical Center became the first 
prestigious institution to risk 
its reputation by opening a 
clinic for the diagnosis and 
treatment of transsexuals. 

In 1952 an American named 
George Jergenson went to 
Denmark, underwent a series 
of operations, and came home 
as "Christine". This unprece- 
dented event incurred charges 
of "mutilative surgery" from 
an incensed public and profes- 
sion, but public attitudes 
have changed considera- 
bly since 1952. Last month a 
Baltimore court ordered the 
identical operation on a 17- 
year-old male transsexual by 
Hopkins surgeons. 

German - born Dr. Harry 
Benjamin, long-time defender 
of these deviates, defines the 
term that he originally coined 
in his new book, The Trans- 
sexual Phenomenon. Accord- 
ing to Dr. Benjamin, a trans- 
sexual is not a hermaph- 
rodite, to whom a cruel Na- 
ture has given some of the 
organs of both sexes, nor is 
he a homosexual in the ac- 
cepted sense. He is simply a 
person with a body of one sex 
and a personality of the oth- 
er. Thus, he is likely to be a 
transvestite. preferring the 
clothes of the opposite sex. 

Lacking an explanation by 
heredity or hormones, doctors 
have suggested the factor of 
environment. A child born 
into a home where an off- 
spring of the opposite sex was 
strongly wanted may simply 
be treated as though it were 



of the wanted sex. By the end 
of such an affected childhood, 
the true transsexual may feel 
as though he does, belong to 
th? opposite sex, and cannot 
be persuaded otherwise even 
in continued analysis. Since 
the mind cannot be changed, 
Dr. Benjamin concludes that 
tlie only alternative aid is to 
adjust the body to the mind 

"Is this alternative actually 
an aid?" Seems to be one 
normal reaction to such an 
avant-garde procedure. Isn't 
this simply an expensive way 
to help a homosexual attract 
partners, rather than trying 
to help him recover phycho- 
logically? The doctors at Hop- 
kins don't think so, and they 
are the first men to risk the 
reputation of a prestigious 
medical center to help the es- 
timated 2,000 such deviates in 
our country. They stress the 
fact that they are indeed con- 
cerned with the entire health 
and personality of the patient, 
who remains on hormone 
treatment for the rest of his 
or her life. Dr. Benjamin cites 
the cases of twelve formerly 
male patients who have mar- 
ried successfully as women, 
some of these achieving moth- 
erhood through adoption. Out 
of his total of 51 patients. Dr. 
Benjamin rates 44 as satis- 
factory or good, five as doubt- 
ful, and only one as unsatis- 
factory. 

With a relaxing of Britain's 
bars against homosexual re- 
lations between two consent- 
ing adults, and America's ju- 
dicial approval of transsexual 
operations, it is with relieved 
heart that we see our society 
lifting these hapless individ- 
uals from the snakepits that 
for so long characterized our 
whole mental health system. 
Which way is better? This 
question will be hotly debated 
for some time, but there is the 
gratifying certainty that ei- 
ther way is better for the in- 
dividual than his previous 
state, and is consequently bet- 
ter for the society in which 
he lives.

Millsaps Geology 
Majors Journey 
To SW Alabama 

Eleven Millsaps Students, 
all advanced geology majors, 
and Dr. Richard Priddy, par- 
ticipated in a two-day trip in- 
to southwest Alabama, Fri- 
day, December 2 and Satur- 
day, December 3. 

They joined some 90 others 
in a study of Eocene and Oli- 
gocene beds between Selma 
and Mobile. These are the 
strata which are some 3,000 
feet thick in central Missis- 
sippi and make up the North 
Central Hills, the Jackson 
Prairie, and the Vicksburg 
Hills. As these strata are only 
half as thick in southwest 
Alabama, they were studied 
with great ease on this field 
trip. 

Most of the 90 participants 
were geology teachers, geolo- 
gists with oil companies, on 
the staff of state geological 
surveys, or with the U. S. 
Geological Survey. 

Ten were students who 
came from other schools, Tu- 
lane, University of Tennessee, 
and Louisiana State Universi- 
ty. The Millsaps student dele- 
gation was the largest. 

The party left Millsaps 
campus at 4 P.M. Thursday, 
December 1 and journeyed to 
Mobile to join the other geolo- 
gists. Friday roadcuts were 
studied, but Saturday, a cold 
wave and light drizzle caught 
up with the party, just as the 
collecting became best. 

Despite the dampness and 
treacherous footing, the party 
collected fossils at extreme 
low water stage of the Tom- 
bigbee River near Campbell, 
Alabama. They closed the 
fieldtrip with a four hour stop 
at the famous St. Stephens 
quarry overlooking the River. 
Rocks and fossils were ob- 
tained in a continuous verti- 
cal section from the Moody s 
Branch marl through the Ya- 
zoo clay and through the 
whole of the Vicksburg series. 
These 125 feet of strata are 
equivalent to 450 feet of beds 
as exposed between Jackson 
and Vicksburg. 

The collections are being 
processed by Wayne Up- 
church and Ted Weller. Other 
men on the trip were David 
Hudson, Tom Burns, Prentiss 
Bellue, Charlie Whitten, and 
John Ryan. Women on the 
trip were Zoe Andrews, Olivia 
House, Sandra Kees, and 
Mary Woodruff.

Millsaps may not be the 
winningest basketball in Mis- 
sissippi. In fact we may be 
the losingest cage squad in 
Mississippi. But I think it is 
safe to assume that when our 
basketball team travels to an- 
other city for a game, our 
team conducts itself before, 
during, and after the game in 
a sportsmanlike manner. 

In case some of you missed 
the little item concerning one 
Belhaven - William Carey 
basketball game in the Jack- 
son Sunday paper last week, 
maybe this is a good time to 
bring out some of the things 
that basketball isn't supposed 
to be. 

In that game, played at the 
William Carey court in Hat- 
tiesburg, 74 personal fouls 
were whistled. Obviously 
there was either a violent 
struggle going on between the 
teams during the game or the 
officials were whistle happy. 

But when we view the fact 
that eight technical fouls 
were called against Belhaven 
and three Clansmen were 
booted out of the game, the 
picture clears up somewhat. 

I can't remember Millsaps 
being involved in a game this 
year wherein even half 74 
fouls were called. At Missis- 
sippi College on night the Ma- 
jors had five technicals called 
on them but that is nothing 
out of the ordinary when a 
visiting team plays MC in its 
own match-box gym. 

But the worst part about 
the report in the Jackson 
Daily News - Clarion Ledger 
was that Clan coach Charlie 
Rugg and one of the referees 
allegedly squared off with 
clinched fists and participated 
in a heated exchange of 
pleasantries. 

Certainly nothing anything 
like that has befallen the 
Millsaps team this season. I 
think that even when the Ma- 
jors go somewhere that 
doesn't produce an unbiased 
set of officials, Coach Monty 
and the team have enough 
courtesy and dignity to go 
ahead and play their best and 
not get mixed up in fights, 
arguments with the refs, and 
the like. 

Incidents like that may be 
great for the spectators who 
like a colorful show, but it 
doesn't do anything for the 
name of basketball. 

SPORTS NOTES 

Although the Millsaps 



basketball scorebook seems to 
have been misplaced or left 
in a rent-a-car or something, 
Jerry Sheldon is still leading 
the rebounding and scoring 
categories. His 17-point per 
game total and 12 retrieves 
are team highs. 

Bill Drury and Gary Hassel- 
man are both scoring and re- 
bounding well lately. Dairy's 
24-point performance against 
Arkansas A&M last week 
showed his capabilities. 

Spring football has started 
and with baseball right 
around the corner the athletic 
department at Millsaps is 
keeping fairly busy. The 1967 
baseball schedule should be 
released within a week or so 
and the 1967 football schedule 
will come out soon also. 



30-Man Squad Begins 
Spring Drill Sessions 



Following a hectic day of 
registration, the Millsaps 
Major football team went 
through their first day of 
spring drills on Alumni Field 
last week. 

Coaches Harper Davis and 
assistant Tommy Ranager 
are working with a squad of 
some 30 players, 18 of whom 
are returning lettermen, in 
preparing to better the 1966 
record of 4-3-1. 

A principal concern for the 
coaches during the new sea- 
son will be replacing several 
record setting performers 
who will graduate this spring. 

Lost to the Majors is quar- 
terback Danny Neely, who 
had a 56 per cent completion 
average out of 186 passes 



Cagers Still Aiming 
For Second Victory 



The Millsaps Majors' basket- 
ball team continued to play 
close games following the se- 
mester break but have turned 
in no wins since that 65-54 
victory over Lam but h here 
before the holidays. 

Since then the Majors have 
dropped an 86-82 contest to 
Birmingham Southern, lost an 
85-78 tilt to Arkansas A&M, 
and bowed to Lambuth 86-59. 

The Majors wind up one of 
the toughest week's of the sea- 
son against Huntington here 
Saturday night. Tuesday night 
the Majors played at Belha- 
ven and Thursday at the Uni- 
versity of Southern Mississip- 
pi. 

Next Monday the Majors 
host Sewanee, visit South- 
western of Memphis Tuesday, 
travel to William Carey 
Thursday and host Alabama 
College Monday, Feb. 20 to 
complete the season. 

In the loss to Birmingham 
Southern, Bill Lax was the 
high scorer with 18 points, 10 
coming in the first half. John 
Poag was next in line with 
14 points, Craig Foshee scored 
11 and Jerry Sheldon was held 
to eight points. 

Down 44-30 at the h*lf, Lax 
and Bill Drury led a second 
half comeback that pulled the 
Majors to within two points, 
80-82, with only a minute left 
in the contest. Birmingham 
then went into a stall, and 



hit four free throws to ice the 
victory. 

Against Arkansas A&M, 
coach Jim Montgomery 
termed the tilt "one of our 
best efforts ball handling- 
wise." The Majors led 36-30 
at halftime, but the Boll Wee- 
vils came back in the second 
half hitting everything they 
threw to the basket and went 
ahead by 15 on one occasion. 

With 10 minutes left, the 
Majors fought their way back 
to within one point of the lead, 
and it was nip-and-tuck until 
the last few minutes when the 
Weevils pulled ahead to their 
winning margin. 

Belhaven led by three 
points at halftime after jump- 
ing off to a 6-0 advantage in 
the early minutes. In the sec- 
ond half the Majors surged 
ahead by three points but the 
Clan surged back ahead for 
good. In the last three

thrown. 

Also gone is rushing lead- 
er Troy Lee Jenkins, who 
fought for a 4.8 yard per car- 
ry average. 

Edwin Massey, the 1966 
teams* leading scorer with 42 
points and the leading pass 
receiver with 39 receptions 
will be missed. 

Fullback-linebacker Timmie 
Millis, the solo tackle leader, 
is gone, along with fullback 
Gerold Hobbins, who did all 
the punting during the past 
two seasons. 

With the graduation of 
tackles Bill Milton and John 
Hart, big holes are created 
in the Major interior line. 
Milton was voted the Most 
Outstanding lineman this sea- 
son and Hart copped the Best 
Blocker award. 

Defensive halfback Jerry 
Huskey, tackle Charlie Whit- 
ten, and split end Bob Mayo 
are also gone. All of these 
players will leave big gaps to 
be filled and spring practice 
will give the coaches an idea 
of who is capable of filling 
these positions. 

Twenty practice sessions 
are planned this spring, 
which is the maximum al- 
lowed under the National Col- 
legiate Athletic Association 
rules. The spring game, 
which will climax the drills, 
has been set for March 3. 

Reporting for duty at the 
tight end positions last week 
were William Campbell, 
John Hamby, Max Arinder, 
and Pete Allison. Split ends 
Jack Baggett, Jerry Pearson, 
and Wayne Ferrell will be 
battling for a starting post. 

Tackles out include Stanley 
Graham, John Turcotte, Jo 
Jo Logan, and Parker Pow- 
ers. Jimmy Waide, David 
Martin, George Self, Tommy 
Burns, and Thomas Bryant 
will vie for the guard posts. 

Ben Graves, David Powers 
and James Shaw will all be 
in the running for a starting 
centers* slot. 



In the backfield Joe Pat 
Quinn and Leon Bailey are 
expected to direct the team 
from the quarterback posi- 
tion. Both are Meridian High 
School grads and will be 
counted on heavily next fall. 

Mike Coker, M e 1 f o r d 
Smith, Mike Davidson, 
Prentiss Bellue, Joe Bailey, 
and Donald Young will be 
clashing for halfback berths. 

Pat Amos is returning at 
fullback is expects competi- 
tion from Robert Evans, who 
is making the switch from 
guard. 

Only Waide, Pearson. 
Burns, and Ferrell will be 
listed as seniors on next fall's 
roster. 

A couple of junior college 
transfers will be on hand dur- 
ing the spring sessions. Half- 
back Young from Delta JC is 
one of them and big tackle 
Joe Shoemeck, a Hinds JC 
prospect, is the other. 

About three weeks of the 
drills will be devoted to work- 
ing on the offensive phase of 
the Millsaps game. Last sea- 
son the Majors piled up a 304- 
yard per game average and 
Davis said that with the loss 
of virtually the first two back- 
fields, work on the offense 
was imperative. 

The other week will be 
spent on defense, specifically 
defensing the University of 
the South s single -wing 
offense. Davis said that he 
thought that the Majors were 
ready for the Sewanee single- 
wing last fall but they tallied 
28 points in the first half, 
after the intermission, how- 
ever, the Majors stopped 
Sewanee team cold and went 
on to post a 40-28 victory. 

Millsaps will play its first 
game of the 1967 season 
against Sewanee on Sept. 23 

Much time will be allotted 
to fundamentals and "quite a 
bit of contact" has already 
been tasted by the team 
members.

Things have changed since 
I last matched wits with a 
Millsaps teacher or watched 
the Major* battle their heavi- 
ly subsidized athletic oppon- 
ents. The teachers are much 
the same; the Majors are dif- 
ferent. 

While still in Washington I 
watched with wonder as the 
football team completed their 
first winning season in over 
twelve years. Other Washing- 
ton Semester students may 
have thought me slightly mad 
as I poured over column after 
column of football scores in 
the Sunday Times searching 
for a Millsaps' victory. 

Had they been at the Bel- 
haven basketball game that 
opened the spring semester, 
they would have understood. 
"School spirit" is hardly the 
proper term. What I wit- 
nessed was the euphoria of 
a student body dedicated to 
the success of their team. The 
Majors have talent; the en- 
thusiasm of the crowd can- 
not be contested. One could 
only wish that that had been 
enough. Perhaps someday it 
will be. . . 



Many make a habit of pre- 
dicting the ups and downs of 
the stock market, the weath- 
er, the space program, and 
the New York Yankees. The 
Ripon Forum has its crystal 
ball tuned to American poli- 
tics, and they claim to forsee 
with virtual infallibility a few 
of the major events that will 
mark the year 1967. We watch 
with interest their forecast 
for February: 

Ronald Reagen inaugurates 
a weekly television series 
called "Reagan Plays Him- 
self" in which he calls up 
views to ask them how they 
think California should be 
run. All those whose sugges- 
tions are actually used in Gov- 
ernment are given Prize Pro- 
fessorships in subjects of 
their choice at the University 
of Berkeley. Runners up get 
voting seats on the University 
Board of Regents. 

On the day before Washing- 
ton's birthday, the Supreme 
Court hands down an historic 
decision (Cosa Nostra 
Spellman) banning the use of 
confessions in Catholic 
Churches. Enraged, Senator 
Dirksen introduces a Consti- 
tutional amendment requiring 
Bible reading for an hour of 
every Supreme Court session. 



Student Senate • 

(Continued from page 1) 

proposals will be consid- 
ered by the Senate. 

Jimmy Waide, president of 
the junior class, commented 
that several men had jobs at 
a local restaurant and .are 
paid in free meals. He ques- 
tioned the idea of depriving 
these men of their work 
which might be financially es- 
sential. Jerry Duck, SEJ3 
president, favored the resolu- 
tion because he said that ulti- 
mate decision, after the trial 
period, rested in the hands of 
the students. He felt the ad- 
ministration would be very 
hesitant about forcing the stu- 
dents to a proposal which they 
had formally rejected. 

Several students felt that 
compulsory boarding plan 
tickets were not in line with 
the Millsaps tradition of indi- 
vidualism or freedom of 
choice and therefore should 
not be forced upon them. Dan 
McKee expressed two objec- 
tiens to the proposal. First, 
ho said the female segment of 
the student body would be dis- 
criminated against because 
they were always on diets 
and did not eat as much as 
the men. Second, he stated 

Cagers Still . . .

minutes of the game no field 
goals were scored, only free 
throws. 

A well - known Mississippi 
sports writer related in his 
story that the Millsaps-Belha 
Ven game was actually much 
closer than the score indi- 
cated — and he wasn't just say- 
ing that to fill up space. 

The Clan didn't pull the 
game out of the fire until the 
last four minutes. 

With 3:56 left Jerry Sheldon 
hit a driving layup that 
brought the Majors to as close 
as 59-61 but Belhaven went 
into a stall and swished 
through six free tosses while 
holding Millsaps score- 
less with a strong press de- 
fense. 

Belhaven hit 19 of 27 free 
throws, while we got 13 of 15. 
The Clansmen had a 50-44 re- 
bounding lead but the Majors 
led 24-23 in field goals. 

Against Lambuth last week, 
in an afternoon game that 
was Lambuth's homecoming, 
they had a 35-26 halftime lead 



BIG WHEEL 

The largest tricycle ever 
made was manufactured in

that Mr. Hollings worth, owner 
of Hollingsworth's Fine Food, 
would be denied his business 
because of a lack of custom- 
ers. He felt that both of these 
were unfair. 

The proponents of this 
measure argued that, though 
the plan had faults, unless the 
students take the initiative, 
there would be no improve- 
ment in the food system. This 
plan, they contended, will 
bring about better food and 
service. They believed this 
goal is worth the inconveni- 
ence it causes some of the 
students. Even the senators 
who voted for the recommen- 
dation readily agreed that, 
had the bill been directed to- 
ward them, they would have 
voted against it. The feeling 
here seemed to be that since 
these students had not grown 
accustomed to the status quo 
at Millsaps, they would not 
object as vehemently as would 
the present students. 

The result of the proposal 
is unsure. There are even ru- 
mors that it will indeed be in- 
troduced for reconsideration 
by the Senate. As the situa- 
tion now stands, the immedi- 
ate decision is in the hands 
of the faculty, and ultimately, 
it is hoped, in the hands of the 
students, those who have to 
live with it. 

and for a while it looked as 
though the Majors were go- 
ing to repeat the comeback 
victory scored previously this 
season over the same team. 
The Millsaps team popped in 
their first two field goals, slic- 
ing margin to five, 30-35, but 
the homecoming inspiration 
of Lambuth was too much. 

They picked up on their 
shooting and when the Majors 
went into a full court press 
they did a lot of free throw 
shooting to preserve the lead. 



SOCIAL SCOOPS...

-Bulletin- 

The American Student In- 
formation Service announces 
that there are still thousands 
of jobs available in Europe to 
U. S. college students. The 
jobs are being filled on a 
first come, first served basis. 

Job applications and de- 
tailed job descriptions (loca- 
tion, wages, working hours, 
photographs, etc.) are availa- 
ble in a 36-page booklet which 
interested students may ob- 
tain by sending $2 (for the 
booklet, overseas handling and 
air mail postage) to Dept. IV, 
ASIS, 22 Ave. de la Liberte, 
Luxembourg City, Grand 
Duchy of Luxembourg. 



As this is written the rest 
of the campus is preparing 
for the annual journey to 
Mardi Gras, that close packed 
haven of southern college stu- 
dents seeking escape from the 
routine of books, teachers and 
labs. We hope Adrienne 
dcesn't cripple some unaware 
reveler with her paisleyed 
and monogrammed cast. 
There went her chances for 
getting a job as bunny at the 
Playboy Club. 

We also wish Lynn and 
Kent Robertson's father luck 
in coming up with a bath- 
room schedule for all the boys 
and girls staying at their 
house, those arriving late can 
expect to stay in the garage. 
We understand there's a 
latrine out back. Hope you 
weren't late. 

This semester, being a new 
year, begins a new Purple & 
White. New in many ways, it 
is noteworthy that all but two 
of the editors are female. 
Having a new job also we re- 
quest help in the matter of 
obtaining information for this 
column. Any and all interest- 
ing items noticed in connec- 
tion with Millsaps students 
would be gratefully accepted. 
If the social organizations 
would please put someone in 
charge of dropped - pinned- 
engaged and party stuff it 
will guarantee that no one is 
deprived of having their 
name in the paper when it 
should be. We suggest letting 
the vice-president do this as 
they rarely have anything to 
do besides propping their feet 
up and waiting for the presi- 
dent to have a stroke. 

It seems that this year we 
have a few more transfers 
than we noticed last year at 
this time. It's comforting to 
know that the vacancies left 
by those who either have 
nervous breakdowns or give 
up and seek better grades 
elsewhere will be filled. A 
word of warning to these new 
students: beware of Apathy, 
it's purported to be lurking 
at every function on campus, 
though it's our opinion you 
must look to find it. 

Also it's been said that to 
graduate from Millsaps in 
good physical condition you 
had better stav healthy to 
begin with. However this is 
only a vicious rumor, doubt- 
less started by some student 



who really got sick on the 
food. Now that you know the 
major topics hashed over in 
the paper every week, you 
can consider yourself a full- 
fledged Millsaps student. 

Along with new students we 
would like to congratulate 
the second semester pledges 
that were rushed through 
rush. After parties on 
Wednesday night bids were 
given out Thursday, February 
2, much to the relief of the 
football team and fraternity 
members. Although they are 
already aware of what to 
avoid and what to attract on 
campus, they will soon learn 
thr problems peculiar to fra- 
ternity life. Such as how to 
spit shine the same pair of 
shoes eleventy dozen ways, 
how to take fifty licks and 
beg for more, the nasty ac- 
tives that make you and 
where to hide when you see 
them coming. To this delight- 
ful society we welcome: 
Mike Davidson, Jack McNeil, 
Martin Newcomb, Milford 
Smith for the Kappa Sigma's; 
for the Lambda Chi Alpha's 
Max Arinder, Buddy Cook, 
Chris Ginn; and Joe Pat 
Quinn, Thomas Bryant, Sonny 
Wray, Gene Tillman, Ben 
Graves, Greg Breland, John 
Hamby, Mike Coker, Bill 
Campbell for Kappa Alpha. 



Teacher Shortage 
On The Increase 

(I. P.) — A significant in- 
crease in reported teacher 
vacancies reflects the grow- 
ing shortage of teachers in 
the United States, according 
to a report released by Rich- 
ard W. Schlicht, director of 
placement at Augustana Col- 
lege, Sioux Falls, S. D. 

An acute shortage is devel- 
oping in the areas of special 
education — teaching excep- 
tional chikiren, speech correc- 
tion, remedial reading, visit- 
ing teachers, psychologists, 
nurses, educational trainable 
counseling, deaf, sighted, and 
physical therapy. 

In the field of secondary ed- 
ucation, the most serious 
shortages continued to be in 
the sciences, mathematics, for- 
eign languages, girls' physical 
education, and English.

Honors Program Students 
Will Question Selfhood 



By ROBERT WARD 

This spring's Honors Pro- 
gram at Millsaps College has 
recently been announced. Be- 
ginning in late February, Hon- 
ors students will challenge the 
question of selfhood, and par- 
ticularly human capacity and 
responsibility for decision. 

The Honors Colloquia are 
a series of discussions led by 
the faculty members of Mill- 
saps. During these sessions, 
participants of the program 
carefully examine the various 
aspects of this year's theme. 

Seven colloquia are in the 
series and they are to be de- 
voted to books and other ref- 
erences that deal with the 
meaning of humanness. Dr. 
Lee Reiff, chairman of the 
Honors Council, states that 
the initiatory discussion will 
be spent searching for a corn- 
view of the 



lem in addition to alternate 
methods of presenting the is- 
sue. 

The next three meetings 
focus upon the intentionality 
of man and the human image 
from the standpoint of natural 
science, modern literature, 
and behavioral science re- 
spectively. 

Sessions five and six will 
analyze -specific types of de- 
cisions and responsibilities

The Honors Program is a 
three-semester research and

pletion of the program en- 
titles the participant to be 
graduated "With Honors" or, 
depending upon the degree of 
performance, "With High 
Honors." 

Currently composing the 
program are three seniors 
and a junior. They are to be 
joined by incoming partici- 
pants during this spring se- 
mester. Successfully complet-

are seniors, Jerry Duck and 
Polly Dement. 

Chosen in a campus-wide 
election on February 7, they 
have received the highest hon- 
or Millsaps students can be- 
stow on their peers. Official 
announcement of the honor 
was made last night at the 
the Beauty Review. 

A pre-med major, Jerry is 
serving his second year on 
the Student Executive Board 
— last year as vice-president 
and this year in the top posi- 
tion. He is also a member of 
the executive council of the 
Mississippi Intercolle- 
giate Council and a delegate 
to the Southern Universities 
Student Government Associa- 
tion. Because of his leader- 
ship as president of Lambda 
Chi Alpha fraternity, he was 
chosen for membership in 
Gamma Gamma, the Greek 
honorary. 

Coming to Millsaps from 
Purvis, Jerry was a campus 
favorite last year. His par- 
ticipation in intramural sports 
placed him on the volleyball, 
softball, and basketball all- 
star teams and made him the 
recipient of the outstanding 
sportsmanship award. Jerry 
was chosen this year for rec- 
ognition in "Who's Who

Dr. Ashley 
Leads Tour 
In Chapel 

By CAROLYN CRECINK 

"A G u i d e d Tour of Gob- 
bledygook," an examination 
of the collapse of the Ameri- 
can language under jargon, 
was the subject of Dr. Leon- 
ard R. N. Ashley's Chapel ad- 
dress today. 

Assistant Professor of Eng- 
lish at Brooklyn College, Dr. 
Ashley received his B. A. with 
first class honors and his 
M.A. from McGill University. 
He held three successive fel- 
lowships at Princeton, where 
he received his Ph.D. in 1956. 
Dr. Ashley has been a mem-

School for Social Research. 
Currently, he teaches in the 
graduate school of The City 
University of New York. He 
is a recipient of the Shake-

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS 



The Choice Is Theirs 



Ross Barnett, John Bell Williams, and 
Jimmy Swan have all announced their 
candidacies for the governship of Mis- 
sissippi. Dizzy Dean and Blowtorch 
Mason can be expected to announce 
soon. These men add an interesting in- 
gredient to any election campaign — ab- 
surdity. But after all, what would a Mis- 
sissippi election be without a dema- 
gogue, a martyr, a country music disc 
jockey, a sports announcer, and a garage 
mechanic vying for power. The tragedy 
of the absurdity is that Mississippi (i.e. 
those allowed to vote) is likely to elect 
one of these men to her highest posi- 
tion of trust and honor. Thus, Mississippi 
becomes one of the few states in the na- 
tion that does not allow her illiterates to 
vote but does elect them to public office. 

If Millsaps is to be concerned with the 
welfare of those about her, let us hope 
that this does not happen. Moreover, let 
us work to assure ourselves and our 
posterity that we did not sit idly by as 
Mississippi took another giant leap back- 
ward. The spectrum of legitimate can- 
didates is indeed narrow, despite the 
ever widening field of legal contenders 
for the throne. Not crossing the bounds 
of sanity ourselves and asking you to 
support emerging leaders of a future 
Mississippi such as Hodding Carter, 
Doug Wynn, Charles Evers, or Aaron 
Henry, the Purple and White asks only 



that you give your vocal support to a 
gubernatorial candidate you will be 
proud to claim as a fellow Mississippian 
some twenty years from now. The field 
more than likely will include the follow- 
ing: William Winter, Rubel Philips, Wil- 
liam Waller, and possibly Gene Taiggs. 
The popular phrase would be "the choice 
is yours." Unfortunately, it is not. 

By some clever design, those most in- 
terested in the welfare of Mississippi and 
in the destiny of man generally are not 
allowed to vote unless they have reached 
their twenty-first birthday. The dilemma 
of college students being concerned yet 
helpless is common across the nation. 
What makes the Mississippi situation 
even more difficult is the fact that even 
if the student is twenty-one and does not 
happen to attend a Mississippi school, 
he is still condemned to further passion- 
ate non-participation. 

Thus, for thousands of college stu- 
dents, the choice is left to those who are 
older though not necessarily wiser or 
more mature. If our votes cannot be 
counted, at least our voices can be 
heard. If that voice is not heard, the 
choice will be ever theirs and never ours. 
Make your voice heard and the absurdity 
of this gubernatorial campaign will be 
lessened by the volume of the sound. — 
H.E.C. 



Education Is . . . ? 



Education? What a common word. 
Why, we hear it every day! But what 
does it really mean — what is education? 

It springs from a tiny seed, as does a 
tree, implanted in dark but fertile soil — 
the soil of the human mind. Taking hold 
it grows and thrives, its roots probing 
de?p in the dark unknown of ignorance 
and its branches reaching for the light 
of knowledge. 

Listen! You can hear it: a book open- 
ing, a page turning, a pencil scribbling, 
a typewriter chattering, a voice lectur- 
ing, a sigh. 

Look: You can see it: a shelf of books, 
a stack of papers, an empty ink 
cartridge, a worn notebook, a teacher, a 
frown. 

But wait— there is more. For certain- 
ly we can listen, and surely we can look 
— but do we hear and do we see. . .Edu- 
cation is learning first to see and to real- 
ize the importance of what we have seen. 
Education is learning to put our knowl- 
edge to use. 

Education is the lonely corner of a 
room, a dim light, and the sound of a 
page turning. Education is a free hour 
spent in the library. Education is fall- 
ing asleep over Paridise Lost. 



Education is understanding the con- 
tent of one book before going on to an- 
other. It is absorbing all that is on one 
page before turning to the next. Educa- 
tion is having a purpose in what we 
write and a reason for what we say. 

Education is realizing that instructors 
teach students, not courses. Education is 
frowning because there is so much more 
we want to learn, and yet so little time. 

Education is learning about God, our 
world, our nation, and our community. 
It is learning about our fellow man. 
Above all, education is learning about 
ourselves, about life. Education is learn- 
ing to give of ourselves, transplanting 
our knowledge in new soil so we may 
aid in the growth of ideas, minds, na- 
tions. 

Education does not just happen: it re- 
quires application, logic, reasoning, re- 
sponsibility. Education is the discipline 
of mind and character, mental and 
moral cultivation. 

From one tiny seed springs that 
searching root to pierce the dark soil of 
ignorance. With nourishing it thrives — 
probing, absorbing, retaining, advancing 
— never ending its conquest. — M.J.M.

A Right To Rebel 



By ALEC VALENTINE 

No one will deny that Mill- 
saps is a good school, 
academically Doubtless we 
are the best in the state, and 
perhaps one of the best in the 
South. Our graduates contin- 
ually report their surprise at 
finding grad school so easy 
and students from other 
schools so unprepared. And 
lately much has been made 
over the fact that our alumni 
excell in their various careers 
and especially that our little 
school is well on its way to 
making a name for itself na- 
tionally. 

It has become really dead- 
ening, however, to hear Mill-

tongues of students, adminis- 
tration and faculty alike, 
week after week, when the 
school has so many glaring 
and inexcusable shortcom- 
ings. The student newspaper, 
chapel, club meetings, and 
all public fora of opinion and 
information abound in praise 
of our bitter little Hell-hole, 
with never a hint that every 
vision might not be rosy, ev-

(ACP)— For years there 
has been little doubt about 
cartoonist Al Capp's polit- 
ical leanings. For one 
thing, the gentleman srm- 
ply detests protestors. 

His latest caricature of 
them is "Joanie Phonie," 
a long - haired, long - nosed 
folksinger who, in Capp's 
eyes, is clearly a fake. Just 
as clearly, "Joanie" is 
modeled on folksinger Joan 
Baez, though Capp denies 
it. 

The real Joan is in- 
dignant and threatens to go 
to court unless she gets a 
retraction. She says she 



i't mind the carica- 
ture, but only objects to 
Capp's using it to ridicule 
the whole protest move- 
ment. 

Capp is blasting the en- 
tire movement, but so 
what? That's his right, 
even if his attire is "stupid" 
and "vulgar," as Miss 
Baez contends. Ironically, 
she is just confirming 
Capp's portrait since her 
reaction suggests she is not 
nearly as liberal as she 
pretends, but is in fact a 
"fake." 

Ah, well. There but for 
fortune. . . . 



cry act acted and thought 
were blithely united in 
a loyal, sterile drive toward 
the goal of greater academe 
for all. Never a hint that any 
of this might not be so — pub- 
licly, that is. In private con- 
versations among students 
the opposite is true: seldom 
are any but foul words heard 
about our academy from the 
citizens who, far from the 
pleasant groves envisioned by 
our "aristokratia" and even 
our "Senators," must cope 
with the many irritations of 
life in the hinterlands — the 
Millsaps campus. 

This is the first, then, in a 
series of essays whose pur- 
poses will be to bridge the 
gap between the public repre-

what I feel to be the truth. 

This week our discussion 
will deal with the types of bad 
teachers we have at Millsaps 
Not all teachers here are 
bad, to be sure. Indeed, all 
the bad teachers I know 
would comprise a definite 
minority in the faculty. The 
criteria for being a good 
teacher are probably subject 
to debate, but I can name a 
few on which I feel everyone 
would agree: (1) every class 
the teacher conducts should 
be worth more to the student 
as regards the goals of the 
course than if the student 
spent the same amount of 
time studying the subject on 
his own; (2) one goal of the 
course should be that its con- 
tent gives the student some- 
thing of permanent value- 
other than the recorded grade 
—and of enough value to jus- 
tify the time he spent in it; 
(3) the teacher should have 
given some truly analytical 
thought to the goals, and 
hence the structure, of his 
course and also to each day's 
class procedure.

McNamara Talked About, 
But Not Necessarily Loved 



GOVERNOR BUFORD ELLINGTON of Tennessee will par- 
ticipate in Millsaps' "Toward A Destiny of Excellence" con- 
vocation. Governor Ellington is scheduled to speak Saturday, 
February 25, at 10:00 a. m. in the Christian Center. The pro-

Special Events For 
Convoation Planned 



By Franklin Chatham 

In a short time Millsaps 
will have as a guest Convo- 
cation speaker Secretary of 
Defense Robert S. McNa- 
mara. On November 9, 1960, 
McNamara assumed the pres- 
idency of Ford Motor Compa- 
ny, and a few days later John 
F. Kennedy became the 35th 
President of the United 
States. These two rising stars 
soon joined as a political 
"supernova" when McNa- 
mara became Secretary of 
Defense^ in the original Ken- 
nedy Cabinet. Since that time, 
he has become the most 
talked-about member of any 
Cabinet since Roosevelt's 
Brain Trust, though not nec- 
essarily the most loved. 

Congressmen who promised 
their consistency a reduction 
in "wasteful government 
spending" have lambasted 
McNamara for closing obso- 
lete military bases in their 
own states, staunch supporters 
of a conventional fighter- 
bomber force have attacked 
the decision for the TFX con- 
tract, and economy through 
centralized control of the De- 
fense Department has alien- 
ated some military brass. The 
Birchers see him as a Krem- 
lin tool who is either out to 
disarm the country or to drive 
it to bankruptcy through in- 
creased defense spending — 
they haven't decided which is 
his plan. To the JBS, Robert 
Strange - love McNamara is

Evaluation Of 
Chapel System 



Three special programs, 
with a nationally known 
speaker to be featured at 
each, have been planned as 
part of the February 24-25 
"Toward Destiny of Excel- 
lence" Convocation. 

A Founders Program, an 
Alumni and Friends Program, 
and a Business and Industrial 
Leaders Dinner are first 
among the special events. To 
round out the weekend con- 
vocation activities, there will 
also be several less formal 
events. 

Secretary of Defense Rob- 
ert McNamara will speak at 
the Founders Program, which 
will be held at 8:00 P.M., Fri- 
day, February 24, in the Jack- 
son Coliseum. The program 
will be open to the public. 

A Millsaps alumnus, Ten- 
nessee Governor Buford El- 
lington will speak Saturday 
at 10:00 a.m. in the Christian 
Center. The public is invited 
to attend this program also. 

Business and industrial 
leaders will hear Roger 
Blough at a dinner to be held 
Saturday at the Heidelberg 
Hotel. Blough is Chairman of 
the Board of United States 
Steel. The dinner is the only 
event not open to the general 
public. 



Presentation of citations to 

persons who have given dis- 
tinguished service to the state 
will be an additional high- 
light of two of the programs. 
At the Founders Program, 
citizens citations will be giv- 
en at the Saturday morning 
program. 

Participating in the convo- 
cation will be several top po- 
litical and business leaders of 
Mississippi. Senator John 
Stennis, Governor Paul John- 
son, Jackson Mayor Allen 
Thompson, R. E. Dumas Mil- 
ner, Nat S. Rogers, R. Bax- 
ter Wilson, and George B. 
Pickett are included. 

Under the general leader- 
ship of Baxter Wilson and 
Merle Mann, as chairman and 
co-chairman of the Steering 
Committee, eight committees 
composed both of alumni and 
non-alumni are planning the 
convocation. Committee 
chairmen are R. E. Dumas 
Milner, program; T. M. Hed- 
erman, Jr., publicity; Alex 
McKeigney , arrangements ; 
William E. Barksdale, at- 
tendance; W. P. Me! Mull an. 
Sr., hospitality; Mrs. Tom B. 
Scott, Jr., Women's Commit- 
tee; Mendel M. Davis, alum- 
ni citations; and Edmund L. 
Brunini, citizens citations. 



Underway 

Under the auspices of the 
Dean of Students a faculty- 
sponsored committee has 
been formed to study and 
evaluate the present chapel 
system — its attitudes, pro- 
grams, attendance and 
overall mechanics. 

Suggested revisions in- 
clude exemption from at- 
tendance, the reduction of 
religious programs to one 
a semester, having reli- 
gious program attendance 
on a voluntary basis, hav- 
ing chapel twice a month 
instead of weekly, and the 
possible elimination 
of chapel entirely as in ten 
years the seating capacity 
will be, insufficient. 

One of the purposes of 
this committee is to consid- 
er proposals received from 
the students at large. These 
may be submitted to the 
following students, Irene 
Cajoleas, John Williams, 
Ricky Fortenberry or Sam 
Kernell. Or suggestions 
may be presented to these 
faculty members serving 
on the committee, Dr. 
Reiff, Mr. Woodward, Mr. 
Bavender, Mr. Clayton, Mr. 
Nicholas or Mrs. Hederi. 



threat in the U. S. gov- 
ernment, now that Eisenhow- 
er has vacated. On the other 
side of the ideological fence, 
the Communist paper Worker 
shows a "Mac the Knife" car- 
toon with Mac's dagger plant- 
ed solidly into the Vietnamese 
landscape. 

Can such a man exist, who 
can simultaneously enrage 
both Bircher and Worker, or 
is this a character-product of 
the Johnson credibility gap? 
Is there really a Secretary of 
Defense? Yes, Virginia, there 
is a real man who constantly 
wears a Vietnamese albatross 
around his neck, and he is 
one of the ablest men on the 
American political scene. 

This assistant-President-in- 
charge-of-war has a job that 
any man knows how to man- 
age (just ask one) but few 
would assume. His task of di- 
recting a prolonged, limited 
objective war has been a 
strenuous one, and one well- 
handled So efficient has his 
analysis been that this quip is 
heard in D.C.: "If McNamara 
had gone atop Mt. Sinai in 
place of Moses, he would have 
come down with one table and 
three wall charts." One must 
admit that this man has a 
way with charts at press con- 
ferences that could convince 
Ho Chi Minh that our bomb 
strikes were advisable. Mc- 
Namara can almost convinc- 
ingly breach the credibility 
gap in his presentation of our 
strategy, and he "leaves it to 



Lyndon" to assuage any 
doubts that God is on our 
side. This division of labor 
seems to be his sole mistake, 
for his own department has 
been both efficient and clan- 
destine, and thus immune to 
any attack other than hypo- 
thetical excursions of various 
Senators. 

Millsaps may be the host 
of a nationally recognized 
speech in light of Secretary 
McNamara's recent proposals 
for change in the draft pool, 
. as well as the anti - missile 
system, which McNamara re- 
cently discredited in his an- 
nual report to Congress. He 
expressed again the Adminis- 
tration position that deploy- 
ment of such a defense meas- 
ure would result in an arms 
race which would leave all 
participants more heavily 
armed but no more securely 
defended. He has also advo- 
cated a universal draft obli- 
gation, either civilian or mili- 
tary, with a "priority cate- 
gory" of 19- and 20-year olds. 
Another Defense Department 
proposal is a system of con- 
verting ineligible l-Y's into 
eligible draftees through a 
training program suggestive 
of a mandatory Job Corps. 
With major portions of the 
present selective service law 
due to expire next year and 
elections a year hence, some 
clarification on universal 
draft service and his "salva- 
tion army" should be in order 
at this time. 



Archeological Dig Set 
at Indian Mound For 
Students this Summer 



By ALEX WRIGHT 

An archeological dig for in- 
terested Millsaps students will 
take place this summer near 
Pocahontas on U. S. Highway 
49. The dig will take place 
during the second semester of 
Summer School and will count 
as a six-hour course. 

Mr. Robert 8. Ncitzel, cura- 
tor of the Old Capitol Mu- 
seum, will conduct the dig at 
the Indian mound in Pocahon- 
tas. According of Mr. William 
Peltz, instructor of anthropol- 
ogy here at Millsaps, the 
mound at Pocahontas was 
chosen for a number of rea-" 
sons. Mr. Peltz said that the 
sight contains very good ma- 
terial and that it is near 
enough to Millsaps to permit 
the students to travel to and 
from the mound with a mini- 
mum of difficulty. 

A vital result of this dig will 
be the training of students in 
the correct technique of 
archeological excavation. Re- 
port writing and analysis of 
the material will receive spe- 
cial attention. Lectures on 
field techniques and the back- 
ground of the mound will al- 
so be given under the trees 
when the sun gets too hot to 
continue digging. Mr. Peltz 
hopes that the material 



extracted this summer will be 
used in the anthropology 
classes next fall. 

To date, some ten to fifteen 
students have expressed a 
definite interest in the dig. 
Anyone else interested should 
contact Mr. Peltz in F-09. 
There is no pre-requisite.

McDonald, Adams Place 
Second In Debate Tourney 



By DAVID FLEMING 

Journeying to Arkansas 
State last weekend, Mary Ann 
McDonald and Dianne Adams 
captured second place in the 
women's division of that col- 
lege's debate tournament. 
They compiled a 5-2 record. 

On Friday in the prelimi- 
nary rounds, the team rolled 
up a 4-1 mark. Starting the 
tournament on the affirma- 
tive side, Hutchinson Junior 
College narrowly nosed out 
the M i 1 1 s a p s squad. In the 
second round debating nega- 
tively, the two girls easily 
dominated Bethany Wazcrene 
to take the decision. Pacing 
Kansas State College in the 
third round. Millsaps im- 
proved its record to 2-1. Judge 
McAdoo called the round "the 
best debate of the day." Miss 
McDonald and Miss Adams 
finished out the preliminary 
rounds with a fourth round 
dec ision over Arkansas State 
and a fifth round victory over 
the- University Of Arkansas. 
Completing the day with a 
superb 4-1 ueeord. the team 
qualified for the semi-finals 
held on Saturday. 

Miss McDonald and Miss 
Adams took on the same Uni- 
versity of Arkansas that they 



had previously defeated in 
round five. This time the 
teams switched sides of the 
question with Millsaps on the 
negative. A unanimous choice 
went to Millsaps as the girls 
were selected by all three 
judges. This win gave the 
girls their fifth consecutive 
win, longest this year by a 
Millsaps debate team. 

Advancing to the finals. 
Millsaps again debated Hutch- 
inson Junior College who ac- 
counted for the lone Millsaps 
loss. Having previously debat- 
ed Hutchinson affirmatively. 
Millsaps was placed on the 
negative. In the final out- 
come, Misses McDonald and 
Adams lost the round 2-1 by 
the vote of the judges and by 
only one point all told. 

Miss McDonald averaging 
over twenty - five points per 
round ranked high in the 
tournament in speaker points. 
She captured six first place 
awards based on eleven judg- 
ments. Miss Me Donald com- 
piled 177 points, while her 
freshman partner tallied 172. 
Both girls are to be eongratu- 
lated on their excellent work 
and their fine performance in 
representing Millsaps Col- 
lege. 




UNITED STATES STEEL BOARD CHAIRMAN Roger Blough will be one of the featured 
speakers at the "Toward a Destiny of Excellence" convocation. Blough will speak at an in

giOM fence you happen to be. 
The play concerns Sir Thomas 
More (or Saint Thomas More 
if you are a Catholic), the 
Lord Chancellor of England 
during the reign of Henry 
VIII. Sir Thomas, a martyred 
Catholic according to play- 
wright Robert Bolt, was exec- 
uted for refusing to sign an 
oath recognizing Henry as 
head of the Church of Eng- 
land and legitimizing the 
King's offspring by Anne 
Boleyn. 

The historical conflict con- 
cerned is, of course, King 
Henry's break with the Rom- 
an Catholic Church over the 
Pope's refusal to grant him a 
divorce from his wife, 



Catherine of Aragon. Bolt 
however, depicts the principal 
conflict as being within More 
himself — between his consci- 
ence and his concern for his 
own safety. More, up to the 
very end of the play, does 
not believe himself to be the 
martyr type and would prefer 
to remain silent on occasions 
when he disagrees with the 
wishes of his king. 

The real villain in t h e 
drama is Thomas Cromwell. 
Secretary to the King, who 
covets the position of Lord 
Chancellor for himself Asso- 
ciated with Cromwell is Rich- 
ard Rich, portrayed by Mill- 
saps student Doug Smith. 
Rich serves as Cromwell's 
flunky, steadily rising in pow- 
er, eventually to become Lord 
Chancellor himself. Rich is 
ambitious above all, betraying 
his friendship with Sir Thomas 
and perjuring himself at the 
latter's trial. That he survives 
anvl prospers while all others 
fall from power is one of the 
most ironic features of the 
play. 

Another Millsaps student, 
Alike Allen, uives a creditable 
performance as hot-tempered 
Will Roper, Mores son-in law 
and dramatic foil for the 
quiet, thoughtful, older man. 

This writer has no com- 
plaints about the drama it- 
self; the play moves along 
fairlv raoidlv In mv estima- 
tion, it presents its message 
rather well, i.e. the conflict 
of cynicsim and self-advance- 
ment with idealism and self- 



R<i1t «;ir»rifirw. W 



sacrifice. 

As Sir Thomas More, Field- 
ing Wright gives an excellent 
performance, although at 
times he allowed his voice to 
drop a bit too low. He did, 
however, portray Sir Thomas 
with considerable sensitivity 
aiui understanding. 

Patrick Kelley as Thomas 
Cromwell and Cliff Dowell 
pfoyteg the Common Man 
both gave fine portrayals in 
their respective roles, and 
Barry McGeehee as the Duke 
of Norfolk was outstanding as 
usual. Doug Smith as Richard 
Rich gave an acceptable, 
though rather stilted, per- 
formance, improving consid- 
erably toward the end of the 
play. Thick Mississippi ac- 
cents marred the otherwise 
satisfactory characterizations 
of Henry VIII and the Span- 
ish Ambassador, played by 
William Daley and Dale 
Danks respectively. 

But which was Sir Thomas 
More — traitor to his King 
or martyred saint?

Red Guard: 

Mao's Cultural Revolution 



19 



By LEE MAKAMSON 

Wearing red arm bands des- 
ignating themselves as mem- 
bers of Mao Tse-Tung s "red 
guard", masses of youth have 
carried China's "cultural rev- 
olution" into the streets and 
factories with open conflict 
reported between Mao sup- 
porters and "revisionists" in 
several provinces. 

Conflict between "pure" 
ideology and the "revision- 
ists* " demands for immedi- 
ate material benefits has chal- 
lenged Mao's position. For 
four years the Central Com- 
mittee had not been convened 
out of fear that Mao's sup- 
port would not materialize; 
and at the plenary session in 
Peking, Mao found himself in 
the minority. 

To reestablish his power 
Mao turned to the 375 million 
Chinese youth. With this sup- 
port he has sought to purge 
the country of all bourgeois 
elements and the party of all 

revisionists". To mobilize 
and incite the masses of 
youth against the party hier- 
archy, Mao promoted Mar- 
shel Lin Piao to his second 
in command and director of 
the newly-formed red guard 

Opposition to Chairman 
Mao stems from his refusal 
to reopen negotiations with 
Soviet Russia and from his 
economic, political, and mili- 
tary transformation policies — 
preparation for the "immi- 
nent" war with the United 
States. The Sino-Soviet split 
since the initial withdrawal of 
Russian military and econom- 



ic advisers in 1960 has had 
internal reprecussions for 
Mao. In 1957 Khrushchev pro- 
posed nuclear protection for 
China. As Peking pressed its 
claim to Taiwan in 1958. 
Khrushchev reneged on his of- 
fer for fear of war with the 
United States. The Chinese 
People's Liberation Army 
through the Minister of De- 
fense had argued immediate 
military objectives which ne- 
cessitated reliance on Soviet 
materel. Mao's insistence on 
party ideology and self - de- 
pendence resulted in P*eng*l 
replacement by Lin Piao. 

Viewing China as encircled 
by U. S. military installations 
stretching from Thailand to 
Japan and by equally hostile 
Russian forces in the north. 
Mao prophesies a military 
confrontation within two 
years. The red guards as a 
paramilitary force in the 
guerrilla tradition represent a 
reversion to tne Yenan re- 
gime: administrative units 
and military establishments 
are to achieve a degree of 
si lt sufficiency and decentral- 
ization. The transformation 
involved, however, has affect- 
ed the normal economic op- 
erations of the state. Liu Shao 
chi (the President of China 
and until August Mao's right- 
hand man), who has created 
an enormous power base of 
factory workers and plant 
managers, opposes the trans- 
formation policy and the "cul- 
tural revolution". Liu fears 
that these policies will cause 
a fall in the standard of liv- 
ing and a loss in purchasing 



power of wages. Work stop- 
pages, strikes, and a tie-up 
of the railway system by 
laborers account for the re- 
ported "purge" of Lin Shao 
chi. 

Present reports indicate 
that the red guards have been 
ordered back to schools, but 
the "cultural revolution' has 
demonstrated to be an effec- 
tive base of support available 
to Chairman Mao at any fu- 
ture time with which to coun- 
ter opposition and by which 
he can assure himself of Im- 
mediate decentralization of 
government to sustain U. S. 
or Russian aggression.

One For The Birds 



(ACP)— Not too enthralled 
over the prospect of being la- 
beled either a hawk or a 
dove, one is faced with the 
possibility of being called any- 
thing from a screaming eagle 
to a yellow-chested chicken, 
comments the Colorado State 
University Collegian. 

One humanoid bird that 
isn t receiving his due recog- 
nition these days, the Colle- 
gian says, is the owl. He 
needs more consideration not 
because he is a symbol of wis- 
dom but because he runs 
around asking "Who?" Also. 
'What and Why/' 

The puzzled bird is asking 
many questions about every- 
one's favorite topic, the war 
in Vietnam. He starts out with 
the scholarly, historical ap- 
proach: "How the hell did we 
get there?" Reply: "Well, we 
were sort of handed this 
seed and a few years of poor 
tending turned it into a sick 
and ugly growth." He asks, 
"Why us? Why not let some- 
one else look after it?" And 
he learns that it is not only 
us, but also Australians, South 
Koreans, even South Vietna- 
mese. Asking when we are 
getting out, he receives only 
grumbles and stares. 

Puzzled by news reports, he 
asks about them. "Has there 
ever been a time when Amer- 



ican casualties were anything 
but light? Is there any truth 
to the statement about, bomb- 
ing civilians?" To both ques- 
tions, one reply: "Incredi 
Die." 

He focuses his attention on 
the home front. Bcintf an old 
bird, he remembers better 
days. "Isn't it customary 
here," he asks, "for a man to 
question national policy and 
politicians and to raise a note 
of dissent without being 
branded cowardly or anti- 
American? And isn't it possi- 
ble for another man to sup- 
port, for moral and legal rea- 
sons, military actions in an- 
other part of the world with- 
out being called a guileless 
follower or a butcher of chil- 
dren?" 

His features are ruffled by 
a crossfire of shouts but he 
persists. "Do you mean that 
a man is wrong if he feels 
he has a strong obligation to 
oppose the draft and burns 
his draft card?" 

"Right," answers a 19-year- 
old Marine. 

"Do you mean that a man 
is wrong if he is convinced 
that this is the greatest na- 
tion in the world and he is 
privileged to serve in her 
armed forces?" 

"Right," answers a 19-year- 
old pacifist.

Belhaven Grabs Third 
Victory Over Millsaps 




Our Subtle Fabricatio 



STEADY REGULAR — Craig Foshee, a 6-0, 170-pound guard 
from Hattiesburg, has seen action regularly during the 1966-67 
basketball season. This sophomore is a native of Hattiesburg 
and scored eight points against the University of Southern 
Mississippi in his hometown last week. 



USM, Huntingdon 
ToP Major Cagers 



HATTIESBURG, Miss. - 
The University of Southern 
Mississippi's Golden Giants, 
with a balanced attack of out- 
side shooting and strength un- 
derneath, overpowered Mill- 
saps' Majors, 102-67, in the 
Reed Green Coliseum last 
week. 

The win was Southern's 
sixth straight and upped their 
season mark to 13-8, while 
dropping Millsaps to a 1-20 
report. 

USM Coach Lee Floyd, run- 
ning platoons in at five min- 
ute intervals in the second 
half and employing a pressing 
defense all the way, watched 
his Southerners chalk up a 
47-24 halftime lead. 

FRIGID HALF 

The Majors were accurate 
on only seven of 34 field goal 
attempts in the first stanza 
while the Hub Citians drop- 
ped in 18 of 40 during the 
first 20 minutes and claimed 
a 35-13 rebounding edge. 

At game's' end, Millsaps 
showed a 33.3 percentage 
from the field, hitting 25 of 
75 and 17 of 26 freebies. 



Huntingdon's Hawks poured 
on the steam in the second 
half to score an 80-64 victory 
over the Millsaps Majors 
Saturday night in Buie Gym. 

Forward Bill Drury's three 
point play eight seconds into 
the game gave Millsaps a 
short lived 3-0 lead. Baskets 
by center Ricky Myrick and 
Guard John Bricken pushed 
Huntingdon to a 4-3 lead and, 
after the two squads traded a 
pair of baskets, the Hawks 
went in front to stay 8-7, with 
16 minutes remaining. 

Huntingdon then turned on 
the speed to race their longest 
lead of the half at 28-12 mid- 
way through the segment. 

Forward Charley Rosen- 
baum then came off the beach 
to score three straight baskets 
as the Majors rallied to with- 
in four, 28-24, with 6:30 re- 
maining. 

Myrick had 21 points to lead 
all scorers. Windell Barr add- 
ed 18 while guard Bricken 
scored 11. 

Guard Bill Lax led the Ma- 
jors with 14 points while Ros- 
enbaum scored 10. 



Belhaven's Clansmen took 
their third cage victory of the 
year from the Millsaps Ma- 
jors last week, 79-65, in the 
Heidelberg Gymnasium. 

Belhaven topped Millsaps, 
67-59, the week before and 85- 
77 in the Magnolia Classic in 
early December. It was Bel- 
haven's 12th win of the year 
against eight losses and Mill- 
saps' 19th defeat paired with 
one win. 

The Clan went ahead to 
stay on a free throw by pivot 
Ralph Newell and a lay-up by 
Lamar Lee after Millsaps had 
pulled ahead 20-19. 

Troy Shaw's lay-up follow- 
ing a Lee steal put Belhaven 
on top 24-20 and the Green- 
clad Clansmen were never 
bested. 

After that, the closest the 
Majors managed to come was 
29-30 on a free toss by Jerry 
Sheldon with just under three 
minutes left in the first half. 



By CHERYL RIVERS 

One night last week in the 
Union there was a meeting 
of high school students, Mill- 
saps students, and admissions 
counselors. The purpose, of 
course, was to inform 
prospective students about the 
opportunities 1 at Millsaps and, 
ultimately, to convince them 
to spend their college years 
on this campus. The admin- 
istration hopes that these 
meetings (with free dinners) 
will enroll more than several 
freshmen in *67-'68. 

However, the student body 
could help by encouraging 
high school seniors of its ac- 
quaintance to make this 
school their school. There are 
many convincing arguments 
for coming to Millsaps. 

First of all, we have to con- 
sider the academic standards 
of this institution. These 
standards are greatly due to 
the superior faculty. What to 
tell prospective students is 
something like this: "The 
faculty at Millsaps is really 
great. (Say great to sound 
casual.) Why one hundred 
percent of the Psychology De- 
partment have doctorates. 
(That is, Professor Le van way 
has a Ph.D.)" 

Secondly, we must mention 
the diversity of the students. 
Millsaps is proud to claim stu- 
dents from such exotic places 
as Bermuda, Iran, and Pela- 
hatchie. Say something im- 
pressive about environmental 
factors. 

Next, notice must be 
taken of Millsaps 's location. 
Since the college is in the 
capitol and largest city of the 
state, students can take ad- 
vantage of many cultural and 
social opportunities. To entice 
out - of - town acquaintances, 
say: * 'Jackson, the cultural 
oasis of which we hear so 



CLAN MOMENTUM 

But the Belhaven momen- 
tum picked up at that point 
and intermission Charlie 
Rugg's boys were ahead 39- 
31. 

Lee was Belhaven's biggest 
point getter with 21, coming 
on a hot eight of 14 field goal 
attempts and five of five 
from the charity line. Accord- 
ing to Belhaven sports infor- 
mation sources, Lee is third 
in the NAIA (National Asso- 
ciation of Intercollegiate Ath- 
letics) free throw percentage 
statistics with better than 90 
per cent accuracy from the 
line. 

Newell, held to three points 
in the first half by a hustling 
Millsaps defense, Shaw, and 
Jack Horner all scored 12 
points for Belhaven. 

Belhaven used two-platoon 
substitution and Homer was 
a member of that second 
platoon. 



much, has many places to 
go." (Now roll your eyes as 
if you know something you 
don't.) If your only friends 
live in Jackson, tell them 
something about how lucky 
they will be to be close to 
Mom's charge accounts and 
the family car. 

President Graves said that 
the administration is eager to 
attract more boys to the 
campus. Special tactics should 
be taken to lure these boys. 
You can say: "Man, you 
should see the girls at Mill- 
saps. All beautiful!" (Sound 
convincing. No one will be 
anyway.) Girls should be es- 
pecially charming to friends 
of kid brothers and to neigh- 
bors. (Remember, girls, this 
is extremely important. Boys 
are always interested in ath- 
letics. Tell them Millsaps has 
Tennis courts and a golf 
course. Tell them about the 
Homecoming game. Tell them 
that athletics has always been 
a prominent part of extracur- 
ricular activities and that 
Buie Gymnasium is one of the 
oldest buildings on campus. 
Tell about the quaint birds in 
the gym.) 

In short, a little politikin' 
on everyone's part might help 
bring people to this campus. 
Think. How did you get here? 



LAX LEADS 

Bill Lax was Millsaps' top 
gun with 15 points coming 
mostly on long outside jump 
shots. Sheldon was good for 
14 points and 10 rebounds, 
while Bill Drury and John 
Poag, a freshman, tallied 11 
points each. 

The Clan pitched in 32 of 81 
field goal attempts compared 
with 25 of 68 for the Majors. 
Each team made 15 free 
throws although Belhaven re- 
quired 25 cracks from the 
charity line to Millsaps' 21. 

Although Millsaps' equal 
showing in the early segments 
of the contest hinged on su- 
periority on the defensive 
backboards, the Clan ended 
with a 63-38 rebounding ad- 
vantage. 

* The Belhavn lead was cut 
to seven, 53-60, with 8:56 left 
but just over a minute later 
the Clan had padded their ad- 
vantage back up to 13 points. 



Majors End 
Seems Dim 

Millsaps' faltering Majors 
close out a long season with 
William Carey tonight and 
Alabama College Monday 
night. Both of these teams 
have beaten Millsaps pre- 
viously this season. 

William Carey's Crusaders 
take a 10-9 record into to- 
night's game at Carey. The 
The Crusaders beat the Majors 
74-68 at Millsaps and again by 
12 in the Mississippi College 
Tournament. 

The Bisons of Alabama Col- 
lege provide the opposition 
for the last game of the sea- 
son Monday. The last meeting 
of these teams was Decem- 
ber 17th at Alabama College. 
The Majors last by 7 points. 

Senior Jerry Sheldon is the 
leading scorer for the Majors 
with a 16 point average. Craig 
Foshee, Bill Cax, and Bill 
Drury are all averaging about 
11 points.

SPECTATOR 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 



Spring football drills are 
progressing at a fast pace and 
the Major gridders have been 
working mostly on fundamen- 
tals so far. 

Coach Harper Davis and as- 
sistant Tommy Ranager 
planned more of the same for 
this week but next week the 
team was to begin drills on 
the University of the South 
(Sewanee) defensive plan. 

The Sewanee single-wing of- 
fense (the same run by Jack- 
son Provine High School) is 
a rarity in the football world 
today. It was used at Ten- 
nessee until just a few years 
back when coach Doug Dickey 
took the reigns. 

Davis reports that the foot- 
ball team is hustling well and 
getting in some hard knock- 
ing work. 



A scrimmage is scheduled 
Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock 
on the Alumni Field against 
Holmes Junior College. No 
lineup for the game had been 
decided upon by the coaches. 

Basketball season winds up 
next week, hopefully on a hap- 
py note. 

Baseball is right around the 
corner which means that 
spring and warm weather are 
not far off either. 

Coach Davis says that there 
is a strong possibility that a 
batch of new faces will ap- 
pear in the 1967 baseball team 
lineup. 

A group of new signees and 
transfers with a history of 
baseball experience will be 
trying for positions and some 
of the returning veterans will 
be hard pressed to hold on to 
their positions. 



FEMALE CAGERS TO 
TIP OFF '67 SEASON 



By CINDY JORDON 

Despite the unpredictable 
weather, girls* intramural 
sports are still in full swing. 
The intramural activities be- 
gan with tennis. Between 
rainy, fair and cold spells it 
was a little difficult to get 
all the matches played, but 
when the final brackets were 
reached, Miss Sandy Kees 
had won the girls' singles, 
while Mebbie Davidson and 
Virginia Ann Jones had taken 
first place in the doubles. 

The team work required in 
volleyball makes it as excit- 
ing to watch as to play. The 
participants seemed glad to 
see the number of supporters 
who came to the games, es- 
pecially to the big final play- 
off between the KD's and Phi 
Mu's, in which the Phi Mu's 
were victorious. 



The badmitton tourney 
started after the closing game 
of the volleyball season and 
lasted for three days in a 
sinple elimination play - off. 
Out of 64 girls participating 
in the singles, Sandy Kees 
proved herself the most out- 
standing. Mebbie David- 
son and Virginia Ann Jones 
again, working as a unit, 
took the championship in the 
doubles. 

Basketball, being a more 
competitive sport than any of 
the others, offers much ex- 
citement for those who enjoy 
either participating or spec- 
tating. The games scheduled 
for this coming week are: 
Monday-KD versus Phi Mu; 
VVednesday-Chi O versus Phi 
Mu; Thursday - Independents 
versus KD.

Belhaven's pivot Ralph Newell from getting off a shot in the battle last week. Looking on 
are Bill Lax (30) and Craig Foshee (14). Belhaven won the game 79-65. 



Baseball Practice Set 
For March 5 Beginning 



Practise sessions for the 
1967 baseball season will get 
under way March 5 and ac- 
cording to Coach Harper Da- 
vis there will be some new 
faces in the lineup this sea- 
son. 

A list of new prospects will 
be trying out this season, in- 
cluding players that have 
American Legion and semi- 
pro experience under their 
belts. 

This season's squad will be 
out to better last year's 5-15 
mark. The 1966 team got off 
to a hot start but then fizzled 
out to produce a mediocre 
season. 

The biggest losses through 
graduation will be first sacker 
Billy Croswell, pitcher Hap 
Wheeler, and outfielder Doug 
Greene. 

Danny Neely, who was slat- 
ed to return to his short-stop 
post, will not be back. He was 
called to serve his military 
service in the Mississippi Na- 
tional Guard. 

Among the new prospects 
that will be on hand are a 
trio of Clinton High School 
graduates. 

John Turcotte, a tackle on 
the football team, will be try- 
ing out for the first base posi- 
tion vacated by Croswell. This 
freshman played four years 
for Clinton and has played 
with the Clinton Travelers' 
American Legion team. 

Ken and Jerry Cronin, also 
of Clinton, will also be out 
this season. Both have hitting 



capabilities and have Legion 
experience. 

Billy McCann, a sophomore 
and transfer from Clarke Jun- 
ior College in Newton, should 
bolster the Major pitching 
staff. He played on the 1964 
Pearl - McLaurin High School 
team that won the North Di- 
vision Little Dixie Conference 
baseball crown and led the 
Pirates to a winning season 
in 1965. 

McCann was also on a State 
Championship American Le- 
gion baseball team and has 
played semi-pro ball. McCann 
is a versatile player, playing 
first base and the outfield be- 
sides pitching and his hitting 
could certainly be utilized. 

Another Clarke Junior Col- 
lege transfer, Joe Pat Quinn, 
will join the Majors this sea- 
son. He is a sophomore and 
graduate of Meridian High. 

Two more Meridian natives, 
Langford Knight, a fresh- 
man, and sophomore Leon 
Bailey, will be available. 

Craig Foshee and Ron Dun- 
can, who both played at Wil- 
liam Carey last season, will 
be on hand. Both are sopho- 
mores and played on the bas- 
ketball team. Foshee is a Hat- 
tiesburg native and Duncan is 
from Kentucky. 

Jerry Robinson, of Holmes 
JC, will be out. He is a bas- 
ketball player and a junior. 

Veterans Edwin Massey 
and Russel Atchley head the 
field of returnees. Massey will 
likely draw the left field post 



and Atchley will be used as a 
catcher. 

A 22 game schedule has 
been released by coach Da- 
vis 3 and the first 10 games on 
the list are home encounters. 
A total of 15 games will be 
played in Jackson (including 
two at Belhaven). 

Nine teams compose the 22 
game slate, eight of these 
teams appearing before home 
crowds.

HENRY CHATHAM 



Confederate flags were out- 
stretched in a cold night's 
wind and flaming torches 
were silhouetted against a 
black Mississippi sky. Some 
sixty men dressed variously 
as garage mechanics, farm- 
ers, coal miners, and football 
players marched across the 
Millsaps campus with their 
ultimate aim the tossing of 
bodies into a nearby lake. 
Amidst cries of "all you damn 
old Yankees can simply go to 
hell" and "Charge", several 
carefully selected students 
were abducted and thrown in- 
to automobile trunks. As cars 
sped away, hundreds of Mill- 
saps students calmly went 
about their own business, pay- 
ing little attention to the 
plight of collegians. 

For what th.ey had wit- 
nessed only superficially re- 
sembled a Ku Klux Klan ral- 
ly: it was just another KA 
seranade. The victims were 
those who had recently 
pledged or had become 
"dropped" to a Millsaps coed. 

Being in the latter category, 
I must say that the real 
meaning of the fraternity 
system finally hit me as I 
broke the thin layer of ice 
covering Livingston Park 
pond and waded through who 
knows what to the shore. The 
query "Was it all worth it?" 
still rings in my ears. . . 



The first few chapel pro- 
grams of this semester pos- 
sess the common redeeming 
quality of being varied. Paul 
Johnson proved to everyone 
that the governor of Missis- 
sippi need not always be il- 
literate. And opera startled 
some 800 spectators into the 
realization that Millsaps stu- 
dents can indeed sit through 
thirty minutes of "culture" 
without a single head dropped 
in pleasant slumber. 

The prospects of remaining 
alert during the weekly 'show' 
for entire semester have been 
greatly increased by the re- 
cent announcement that the 
Decell Lectures will not be 
held this year. For you 
fortunate freshmen who have 
never encountered a Decell 
Lecturer or you others who 
are fortunate enough to have 
a well developed mental bloc 
for the phrase, we offer noth- 
ing but our congratulations. 
For the rest of you, let us re- 
joice. 



"My first wish is to see this 
plague of mankind (war) ban- 
ished off the earth, and the 
sons and daughters of this 
world employed in more plea- 
sant and innocent amunsc- 
menst than in preparing im- 
plements and exercising them 
for the destruction of man 
kind . . . 

"(But) if we desire to avoid 
insult, we must be able to re- 
pel it. If we desire peace . . . 
it must be known that we are 
at all times ready for War." 



Boyd Named 
Fellow of 
SE Institute 

Designated as a Fellow of 
the Southeastern Institute of 
Medieval and Renaissance 
Studies, Dr. George W. Boyd 
will attend a six-week semi- 
nar at the University of North 
Carolina, July 17 - August 24. 

Held on the Chapel Hill 
campus, the Institute consists 
of seminars and individual re- 
search on topics of interest 
to the participant. Directed by 
a Senior Fellow, the eight 
seminars are informal discus- 
sions in which exchange of 
ideas is encouraged. Fellows 
may choose from eight dif- 
ferent seminars, each meeting 
approximately twice a week. 

The ultimate goal of the 
Institute is to stimulate schol- 
arship and modernize teach- 
ing methods in Southeastern 
schools in regard to the 
medieval and renaissance 
eras. 

Dr. Boyd, head of Millsaps's 
English department, will be 
one of the six Fellows in the 
seminar "Renaissance Litera- 
ture in its Cosmological Con- 
text." The seminar will recon- 
construct the cosmolog- 
ical thought of the Renais- 
sance and will consider its 
various intellectual activities. 

Fellows were chosen by ap- 
plications submitted in the 
fall of 1966. 



Right To Rebel . . . 

(Continued from page 2) 

that rare breed of teachers 
who give so much work and 
such hard tests, often pop 
tests, that almost everyone 
flunks. The teacher then di- 
vines a grade based not on 
any rightful standard of judg- 
ment, but upon some other 
criterion that it is not our 
place to know; could it be 
akin to snow? A closely re- 
lated type of teacher assigns 
the same insurmountable 
work loads and gives grades 
according to exactly how 
well the student masters the 
work. Large percentages 
flunk, of course. The really 
cute thing about both groups 
I have in mind is that their 
courses include mountains of 
the most trivial, worthless 
material. The meat of the 
subject is left untouched, 
probably because the teacher 
himself has never touched it. 
Like other kinds of bad in- 
struction, this meaningless 
trivia sours the student to the 
worth of learning in the first 
place, gives a false picture of 
the discipline of which the 
course is a part, and rewards 
the student with a bad grade 
for struggling over nothing. 

Perhaps the most discourag- 
ing type of teacher is the 
4 'easy" one who requires rel- 
atively little participation of 
any kind, making it impossi- 
ble for the student to develop 
any ambition toward the 
course or desire to learn even 
what little material tjiere is. 
It seldom matters whether the 
student earns the grade he 
gets from this type of teach- 



er or merely receives it, be- 
cause in neither case does he 
learn very much. Yet there is 
at least one teacher here who 
will give bad grades in spite 
of the nil content of some of 
his courses. This kind of 
teaching coupled with this 
kind of grading is tragic, 
though it has the surface ap- 
pearance of farcity. Each 
class meeting and each test is 
a total farce, a game. The 
teacher plays the role of 
teaching and the students pre- 
tend to take notes and ask 
questions as if they really 
could care. And yet I call it 
tragic, for beneath all this 
lightheaded show is the very 
real fact of the competition 
for grades. We are caught in 
a system with a distorted set 
of values, and there seems to 
be no immediate cure for it. 
Yet we must conform to that 
system because our society 
places such store by it. 

Most of our teachers, how- 
ever, probably fall into a 
category yet unmentioned, 
that of those concerned, 
serious people who probably 
know their subject fairly well, 
but simply are not good 
teachers. They somehow fall 
short of a sustained, vital 
communication with their stu- 
dents, though in some cases 
they make a commendable ef- 
fort toward a classroom pres- 
entation and the structure and 
content of their courses. Many 
of this group manage to come 
off presentably and earn the 
respect of their students for 
their attitude if for nothing 
else. I will not criticize this 
group too harshly, for perhaps 
they are one of the imperfect 
realities we must learn to 
accept from school as from 
life. Finally, thank God, I 
must acknowledge the few 
really excellent teachers we 
have here at Millsaps. 

For the other types I men- 
tioned, however, there is no 
possible excuse or justifica- 
tion. As much at fault as the 
teachers themselves is the 
school, which should have 
fired them long ago. These 
so called teachers are a bur- 
den to their departments be- 
cause they are certainly not 
equipped to teach the upper 
level courses, though they 
sometimes do. More often, it 
seems, they are stuck into 
the required courses and es- 
pecially onto Freshmen. Can 
we expect our Freshmen to 
do anything but transfer 
after a frustrating semester 
like we start so many of them 
off with here? 

The types of bad teachers 
I have named are only the 
ones most outstanding to me. 
I hope I have not so much of- 
fended as pointed the way to 
improvement. My purpose 
was not derogation, nor was

RETURN REQUESTED 



CHIAROSCURO 



By CHARLES SWOOPE 



This past week was packed 
with music — Thursday, a 
modern opera by Bernstein in 
the charpel hour; Friday, a pi- 
ano recital by Tanimichi Su- 
gita, artist - in - residence at 
MSCW; and Monday, a con- 
cert by the Jackson Sympho- 
ny Orchestra, with renowned 
harpist Nicanor Zabaleta as 
guest artist. All of this is 
heart-warming for those of us 
who are literally starved for 
the sound of live music. 

The performance of Leon- 
ard Bernstein's Trouble in 
Tahiti Thursday was a de- 
light for many reasons, not 
the least being the mere fact 
of its presentation. The idea 
of an opera (or anything simi- 
lar—excerpts for plays, poe- 
try readings, music, what 
have you) in chapel, rath- 
er than an endless succession 
of absolutely irrelevant 
"speakers" who peddle the 
same cliches week after week, 
is simply too much for the 
mind of one who has endured 
almost three years of chapel 
here. 

The opera's production was 
at best totally entertaining 
and rarely less than compe- 
tent. The trio was more or 
less unintelligible, but such is 
to be expected when three lit- 
tle voices are warbling at 
once in the Christian Center. 
Mr. Alderson and Mrs. Peltz 
were delightful both vocally 
and dramatically; both made 
the most of their big mo- 
ments, and the (captive) au- 
dience obviously loved it. The 
opera itself was maddeningly 
uneven. I thought the work 
was most successful when it 
was closer to musical-comedy 
than opera. The opening, for 
example, was stereotyped op- 
eratic histrionics and rather 



it the presentation of my own 
views on the subject. It was 
rather to remind the faculty 
and the administration that 
we students are not unaware 
of the deficiencies in our fac- 
ulty, not unaware that in many 
cases we are spending money 
and time for no return, if not 
to our very real detriment. 

Only when Millsaps College 
faces up to these all-import- 
ant facts of her deficiencies 
can she hope to make prog- 
ress toward becoming the 
ideal school we are prone to 
talk about. It is to the end of 
pointing out and reminding 
ourselves of our deficiencies 
that I submit this and all 
future essays. 



ludicrous. But the two big 
soliloquies (which were strict- 
ly West Side Story) were im- 
mensely effective, though 
hardly operatic. Which only 
goes to show, I suppose, that 
to write a really successful 
opera these days is not an 
easy thing. 

The Sugita recital Friday 
evening was yet another mu- 
sical overflowing cup, as it 
were. Mr. Sugita gave us his 
interpretations of music by 
Mozart, Beethoven, Persichet- 
ti, and Chopin, and they were 
very fine interpretations in- 
deed. I especially enjoyed the 
Persichetti sonata, which was 
in the modern idiom, yet ex- 
tremely accessible and listen- 
able. Mr. Sugita's technique 
was formidable; his fin- 
gerwork was especially ele- 
gant and made his recital as 
much a visual delight as an 
aural one. It was a superb 
evening of fine piano music 
beautifully performed, and 
the pity is that more of our 
own student body did not en- 
joy it. Needless to say, the 
little old ladies were there en 
masse sopping up the Cul- 
ture. (And more power to 
them — at times I honestly be- 
lieve what passes for the arts 
in Jackson would fold up and 
die without their rabid sup- 
port.) 

So much for that most sub- 
lime of all arts, music. Other 
of the lively arts are also on 
view in the center of the 
world these days. A Man for 
All Seasons is holding forth 
at the Little Theatre, with a 
cast largely composed of Mill- 
saps thespians. Tiny Alice- 
Edward Albee's first play 
since Who's Afraid of Virginia 
Woolf? — is now in rehearsal 
at New Stage and will, I think 
(and hope), be the theatre 
event of the year in Jackson. 
The play (which I have read 
but not yet seen in perform- 
ance) has got to be one of 
the most powerful going. 

Oh, I certainly hope no one 
missed The Wizard of Oi in 
its umpteenth television show- 
ing Sunday afternoon. After 
countless viewings and (pre- 
sumably) some maturing on 
my part since the first time I 
saw it, I am still totally en- 
tranced by the sight of Judy 
on that Yellow Brick Road. 
For what it is (and I'm not 
at all sure but that it's a 
great deal), The Wizard of Oi 
is one of the most successful 
of all films.

Beauties, Favorites 
At Beaut v Review 



"This is unreal!" exclaimed 
Lynn Marshall as she was 
handed a dozen red roses and 
named Millsaps' Most Beauti- 
ful coed, Wednesday night, 
February 15, at the annual 
Beauty Review. 

Others taking nonors in the 
1967 Beauty Review were Pat 
Murphee, first alternate; Pol- 
ly Dement, second alternate; 
Gayle McHorse, third alter- 
nate; and Jean Nicholson, 
fourth alternate. 

Lynn, a sophomore from 
Sumner, Mississippi, is a 
member of Kappa Delta 
sorority. A biology major, she 
was crowned this year's 
Homecoming Queen. 

Judged on interviews and 
appearance in evening gown 
competition, the contestants 
were narrowed from a field of 
twenty to a group of ten. 
From these ten girls, the top 
five beauties were chosen. 

Along with the choosing of 
Most Beautiful, the Beauty 
Review was highlighted by 
the announcement of the ten 
Campus Favorites. 

Six men and six women, the 
Favorites were selected by a 
popular vote on Monday, 
February 13. 



Seniors were represented 

by Ricky Fortenberry and 
Jean Nicholson. From the 
junior class were Mark Ma- 
theny, Sam Rush, Susan Du- 
quette, Floy Holloman, and 
Leslie Jeanne Floyd. Sopho- 
mores took four places with 
Ronnie Greer, David Martin, 
Carolyn Wallace, and Lynn 
Marshall. The lone frosh on 
the list was Mike Coker. 
They will all be featured in 



the Bobashela, which will ap- 
pear around May 16. 

Handed the task of choosing 
the five lovelies were Mr. 
Joseph Bowden of Joseph's 
Beauty Unlimited; his wife 
Mrs. Jill Bowden, instructor 
in speech and drama at Bel- 
haven College; Freda K. 
Holmes of Freda K's Dress 
Shopi Mrs. Jan Nave Wilson, 
former Miss Mississippi; and 
Mr. William Barksdale, alum- 
nus of the year. 



Peace Corps Volunteers 
To Visit Millsaps Campus 



Former Peace Corps Volun- 
teers will be on the Millsaps 
campus February 27 and 28 
to talk to interested students. 
The Peace Corps is moving 
into its seventh year of serv- 
ice with two former students 
from Millsaps now serving 
overseas. A total of six local 
students have entered Peace 
Corps service since its incep-

Many questions about the 



nature of a PC Volunteer 
have been answered in a re-

polling organization. Among 
more than 1,200 college sen-

To Foliate A Desert 



More than once Millsaps College has 
been called an oasis in a desert of edu- 
cational unconcern. Part of the uncon- 
cern has been lifted by Governor John- 
son's recent inquiry into the status of 
secondary and college education in Mis- 
sissippi; the desert, unfortunately, re- 
mains virtually barren. 

Mississippi's public school system is 
at the bottom or near the bottom in al- 
most every category of producing well- 
educated citizens. A candid report, is- 
sued under the auspices of the Mississip- 
pi Research and Development Council, 
says more than half of the children who 
were second graders in 1956 has dropped 
out of school before their class graduated 
from high school last May. 

Those who stayed, the report indi- 
cates, learned less than pupils in almost 
every other state. They graduated and 
went to work in a state with almost 
twice the illiteracy rate of the national 
average, where less money is spent ed- 
ucating each public school pupil than 
anywhere else in the country. 

Mississippi's college bound students 
score well below the national average in 
the American College Testing program, 
and hold last place in the National Mer- 
it Scholarship Tests. Over 57 percent 
of Mississippi draftees fail the Armed 
Forces mental tests, compared with a 
national average of some 23 percent. 

Nearly 80 percent of the entering fresh- 
men at Millsaps College this year are 
native Mississippians. The simple fact 



that such a respected college as Millsaps 
exists staggers the imagination. 

The mean score of Mississippi stu- 
dents in the American College Testing 
program over the last three years was 
16.8 as compared with the national aver- 
age of 20.4. Millsaps sets its minimum 
score for admission at 20, with excep- 
tions made for certain over-achievers. 
All those who matched the median score 
for the college (24.7) ranked in the 
upper one quarter of all college bound 
students in the nation. 

Besides the quite ritfid requirements 
for admission, Millsaps sets its tuition 
and fees charge at $1000 a year— more 
than the total cost of attending Mississip- 
pi's most expensive state university. And 
Millsaps is located in the heart of Amer- 
ica's most impoverished state. 

Many a campus philosopher is fond of 
quoting the unofficial Millsaps motto 
concerning admission and graduation re- 
quirements: "Difficult to get in; impos- 
sible to get out." But even for those 
who found the Millsaps tradition of ex- 
cellence impossible to match, the insti- 
tution commands a unique sense of re- 
spect and devotion from all who have 
known her. 

The Ford Foundation has come to 
know her. As the leaders of our state 
and nation descend upon Methodist Hill, 
others will begin to know her and pay 
their respects. And an oasis will begin to 
foliate a desert. . .

Representative Joe Pool 
can defy federal court orders 
halting HUAC hearings; 
Wayne Hays can take the 
House dining-room headwait- 
er to Europe; and Sam Gib- 
bons can locate a VA hospital 
on his father's land; but, Ne- 
groes must be a credit to 
their race. Adam Clayton 
Powell ain t. 

When the Harlem Repre- 
sentative libeled a maid, he 
seemed to be having fun. Fel- 
low Congressmen found it in- 
creasingly difficult to apolo- 
gize for Powell back home, 
and he became a "clear and 
present danger". Moves to 
deprive Powell of power with- 
in his House Education and 
Labor Committee, of which he 
has been chairman for five 
years, began in late Septem- 
ber 1966 when its members 
voted by a wide margin to 
adopt new rules. The Commit- 
tee (not Powell) assumed the 
responsibility of hiring staff 
members and dispensing the 
money. 

Congressman Sam Gibbons 

(D. f Fla.) revolted against 
Powell when he didn't turn 
up last year to manage pov- 
erty legislation. Labor sup- 
port evaporated for Powell 
when he refused to call up 
legislation permitting work- 
ers to put up picket lines 
around construction sites (un- 
der the present rule, each un- 
ion has to picket its own 
gate and hence can't shut 
down the whole plant). He re- 



fused until the House first 
approved his own bill to 
strengthen equal employment 
regulations. Then, after the 
House passed Powell's bill, he 
refused to bring up the pick- 
eting bill. Responsible for 
steering the minimum 
wage bill through the House, 
Powell unaccountably accept- 
ed a Republican amendment 
setting back the Administra- 
tion's proposed timetable for 
a wage increase. 

When the 90th Congress con 
vened a closed caucus oi 
House Democrats deprived 
Powell of his chairmanship, 
giving it to Carl D. Perkins 
(a liberal from Kentucky). 
Powell responded by denounc- 
ing the move as "a lynching 
Northern style". In a stand- 
ing 122-88 vote, the caucus re- 
jected a compromise backed 
by Speaker John McCormack 
to deprive Powell of his chair- 
manship only temporarily, 
pending an investigation. 

Representative Udall had 
led the Democratic Study 
Group to deprive Powell of 
his chairmanship, but asked 
the House to allow Powell to 
retain his seat in Congress. 
Majority Leader Carl Albert 
of Oklahoma introduced the 
motion to seat Powell when 
he slipped, "The American 
way is to give a man a trial 
and then to convict him." But 
the House wanted a convic- 
tion first and by a roll call 
vote of 364-64 the House de- 
prived Powell of his seat un- 
til a nine man committee (5 



Democrats, 4 Republicans) 
could investigate. 

There are no bill of partic- 
ulars against the Harlem Con- 
gressman—a House sub-com- 
mittee has already aired of- 
fenses of payroll padding and 
misuses of committee funds. 
Appearing before the special 
committee (which has abso- 
lute power to subpoena and 
no limitations on investiga- 
tion), Powell was accompan- 
ied by seven lawyers. His 
lawyers argued, "Since the 
member elect is over the age 
of 25, has been a citizen of 
the United States for over 7 
years, and is an inhabitant 
of the state from which he 
was elected, the select com- 
mittee should recommend the 
immediate swearing and seat- 
ing of the member - elect." 
Questions relating to other 
matters, the lawyers contend- 
ed, were beyond the province 
of the committee. 

After the confrontation, 
Powell distributed a state- 
ment: "Adam Clayton Powell 
is not on trial today, but the 
United States Constitution is."

The Challenge 
We Face 

By President .Lyndon B. Johnson 

In a world that sometimes seems vexed by change 
and wearied by doubt, there is little need of the next-best, 
the almost-completed and the nearly-as-good-as. 

The noblest search of today is the search for excel- 
lence. In every endeavor, there simply cannot be allowed 
any lessening in this search. 

In every challenge we face, the very best that we can 
do is the only thing we must do. For these problems, 
these challenges, will not go away untended by superior 
effort. 

In the pursuit of peace— in tne unknown environment 
of space— in the strengthening of our economy— in the ac- 
ceptance of decency as standard of treatment for every- 
one—in a resolve to drive out of our lives our ancient 
enemies of ignorance and disease, of poverty and intoler- 
ance—in all of these challenges our efforts will be fruitful 
to the degree to which we refuse to accept anything less 
than excellence. 

Twenty-four hundred years ago Pericles set forth in 
his time the high resolves of our time. "If," he 
said, "Athens shall appear great to you, consider then that 
her glories were purchased by valiant men, and by men 
who learned their duty." 

The duty of valiant men today is to seek the highest 
ground and, there, win the victory over the ills and voids 
and the excuses that plague us. 



Town Versus Gown 
As Political Madness 



(ACP) — It is possible to 
write off the firing of Clark 
Kerr from the presidency of 
the University of California 
as just one more irresponsi- 
ble political act in a state 
that has become a symbol of 
political irrationality. 

But to do this would be to 
miss the overwhelming signif- 
icance of the action of the 
California regents. Kerr and 
Gov. Ronald Reagan were en- 
gaged in a classic struggle of 
state university versus state 
government. And in one 
swift, totally unexpected 
move, government reigned su- 
preme. 

It is still not certain exact- 
ly what prompted the firing 
Reagan had charged Kerr 
with politicking because of 
his s u p p o r t for incumbent 
governor Pat Brown in the re- 
cent election. And there had 
been friction recently over 
Reagan's plans to cut the Uni- 
versity's budget and charge 
tuition. Reagan had also 
sparked a dispute with his de- 
mand that Kerr "clean up the 
beatniks," referring to the 
student activist movement at 
Berkeley. • 

What is certain is that the 



far - ranging implications of 
the firing are political, no 
matter what the precipitating 
cause. Kerr has stated that 
the "University snould serve 
truth, not political partner- 
ship." This strikes home par- 
ticularly hard in a state-sup- 
ported institution. 

Kerr'h case demonstrates 
the precarious position of a 
university president. He must 
absorb pressures from above, 
from the monetary powers 
that keep his institution func- 
tioning. At the same time he 
must respond to the demands 
of an increasingly restless 
faculty and student body. But 
the monetary control of the 
politicians must not extend to 
the point where it violates a 
president's intellectual and 
educational control over his 
institution. 

It is hoped that Kerr's suc- 
cessor will manage to re-es- 
tablish the integrity of his po- 
sition. Otherwise, four years 
from now, "people will be 
wondering how he (Reagan) 
managed in such a short time 
to turn the University of Cali- 
fornia into a second-rate 'col- 
lege on the coast.' M

Students Witness Finest 
Hour Of Forced Chapel 



Compulsory chapel at Mill- 
saps saw one of its finest 
hours Thursday, February 16, 
when Dr. Leonard R. N. Ash- 
ley led the student body 
through a "Guided Tour of 
Gobbledygook". 

Dr. Ashley, a member of 
the faculty of Brooklyn Col- 
lege and author of a variety 
of books, proved to be a de- 
lightfully funny speaker with 
unmatchable wit. Seem- 
ing to enjoy his talk as much 
as the students, he employed 
pointed yet hilarious anec- 
dotes and illustrations which 
left his audience in stitches 
throughout the program. 

•'Education is one thing that 
people are willing to pay for 
and not get," he stated. "The 
most important aspect of col- 
lege is learning to express 
yourself in words. Advance- 
ment and awards go to him 
who can express himself. Ev- 
eryone has to transmit ideas. 
We must learn to think and 
to write; then we must learn 
to put them together." 

Taking examples from his 
freshman papers, he related 
that "very seldom is an ad- 
jective put in bed with a noun 
to which it hasn't been mar- 
ried for centuries." Many il- 
lustrations were presented to 
point up the ambiguity and 
misuse of trite cliches: "A 
virgin forest is one in which 
the hand of man has not set 
foot." "Socrates died of an 
overdose of wedlock." And in 
no means the least, that a 
course in sex at a college was 
to be taught by "the chaplain 
and several lay authorities." 

He continued with exam- 
ples of the confusion and mis- 
understanding caused by 



books and teachers who in- 
sist upon using language 
which will "impress rather 
than inform." As an illustra- 
tion of this point he stated 
that a sociology textbook 
might define an orgy as "Sex- 
ual education group dy- 
namics". His philosophy is 
that speech should be "as 
clear, concise, and concrete 
as possible." 

Possibly the most surpris- 
ing facet of this program was 
the fact that not one person 
interviewed matfe a deroga- 
tory comment. Sue Low cry 
commented that she would like 
to commend the chapel com- 
mittee for this year's work 
and that this program was 
particularly outstanding. To 
this Sara McDavid added. 
"If they get chapel programs 
of this quality all the time, 
there would be no com- 
plaints." 

Don Gibson stated. Very 
good. T liked it. He was a 
good speaker and talked di- 
rectly to the students and 
communicated with them." 
As Judy Prather put, it. " The 
problem is not in the intelli- 
gence or knowledge of the 
speakers, but in their com- 
munication with the student 
Today Dr. Ashley succeeded 
— we need more like him." 

David Clark added, "97 5 r ; 
better than anything else we 
have had. Others have had as 
much to say, but he said it 
better." David Morris said. 
"I liked it tremendously. I 
enjoyed it more than any of 
the other chapel programs." 

Chuck Hallford was em- 
phatic: "After his comments 
about the cafeteria (The food 
is poison and you get such 



small servings), you would 
think that he had eaten in the 
M i 1 1 s a p s cafeteria. Un- 
doubtedly it was t he best 
chapel program of my four 
years here." 

Russell Ingram eloquently 
contributed, "A hilariously 
depictive example of how the 
American language has gob- 
bledygooked itself into virtual 
chaos. A riotious orgy of lan- 
guage description." Fran Du- 
quette summed the entire 
situation into, "Most of the 
kids there enjoyed it, if they 
like things like that."

Winter Visions Mississippi 
As Competing Enterprise 



"There is no substitute for 
the productivity of people," 
William Winter, state treas- 
urer, warned an audience of 
75 students who attended his 
"semi - political" speech, 
Wednesday, February 15. 

Appearing by invitation of 
Circle K, Winter was intro- 
duced by a fellow citizen of 
Grenada, Tommy Wooldridge, 
who gave a brief biographi- 
cal sketch of the guberna- 
torial candidate's earlier 
years. While still a student in 
the Ole Miss law school, Win- 
ter was elected to succeed his 
father as state representa- 
tive. Governor J. P. Coleman 
appointed him State Tax 
Collector following the death 
of Mrs. Tom Bailey. After 
serving one term in this of- 
fice, he worked to see that 
it was abolished on the 
grounds that it was relatively 




unnecessary. Currently Win 
tei holds the Office of state 
treasurer. He is a Mason, an 
elder in the Presbyterian 
church, a trustee of Belhaven 
College, and a member of the 
Jackson Touchdown Club. 

Winter informed the stu- 
dents that the state of Mis- 
sissippi is comparable to a 
$600 million a year business. 
The business is located on 
Main Street, U.S.A., and is in 
competition with 49 other such 
establishments. It is compet 
tajfe for people looking for a 
place to use their talents and 
for the things which make up 
a good life. However, the 
competition is not favorable 
for Mississippi. Such men are 
leaving to enrich others be- 
cause they are penalized for 
living here. They lack suffi- 
cient schools, roads, and hos- 
pitals. 

Human resources must be 
attracted to, not drawn from, 
the s t a t e. Until the use of 
these human resources is cul- 
tivated, competition in any fa- 
vorable sense will be hope- 
less. 

Commenting on states' 
rights, Winter voiced the opin- 
ion that too often the "low- 
est common denominator" of 
the Mississippi citizenry had 
made the decisions for the 
rest of the population. A gov- 
ernor can stop or start a riot 
or outbreak at any moment, 



and it is his duty to be al- 
ways stopping, never starting 
Reaped for law is primary. 

"I resent anyone who ap- 
peals to one's base emotions. 
We have too much natural 
wealth and too much future 
to he a party to any appeal 
placing us in a position which 
would yield us to prejudices 
or the base desires of the peo- 
ple," stated Winter. 

During a question and an- 
swer session. Winter was 
quizzed on his stand as to fed- 
eral grants and aids to 
schools. He stated that he was 
in favor of such grants, but 
that he wished the state had 
more discretion in the use of 
the funds 

Another question of signifi- 
cance of students concerned 
Yv inter's position on carry- 
ing out school reforms. He- 
plying quickly, he said his 
number one aim would be to 
upgrade education in Missis- 
sippi. Thus far the schools 
have been measured by their 
improvement in the last dec- 
ades, but now they must be 
measured against schools in 
other states to get a realistic 
picture. 

Conversing with students 
after the program. Winter 
stated that he expected to be 
ir. the second primary with 
either John Bell Williams or 
Koss Barnett.

Student Opinion On 
Draft Released By 
Student Association 



Polls of college and univer- 
sity student opinion regarding 
the Draft were released 
recently by the National Stu- 
dent Association. This week- 
end in Washington, D. C. the 
results will be presented to a 
closed - door conference of 
leaders from a wide variety 
of youth and student organ- 
izations who will be looking 
for a unified support for an al- 
ternative to the present Selec- 
tive Service System. 

"The results of campus- 
wide referenda on over twen- 
ty campuses were strikingly 
consistent," announced ..Mr. 
Eugene Groves, President of 
NSA. 

. . . More than 90 percent 
of American students feel 
that a nation can be justified 
in conscripting its citizens in- 
to the military. 

. . . More than 70 percent 
of American students are not 
satisfied with the present Se- 
lective Service System. 

. . . More than 70 percent 
of American students would 
prefer to have non-military 
service, e.g. Peace Corps, 
VISTA, Teachers Corps, as an 
equal alternative to military 
service. 

. . . Over 60 percent of 
American students do not feel 
that students should be de- 
ferred just because they are 
students. 

Last November NSA issued 
a call for campuswide ref- 
erenda on the relation of the 
colleges and universities to 
the Draft and on various al- 
ternatives to the Selective 
Service System. "We worked 
especially hard to assure a 



Coed Hours 

(ACP) — Those few co- 
eds who are dissatisfied 
with hours regulations or 
restrictive "in loco 
parentis" treatment in gen- 
eral should fend for them- 
selves and find their own 
solutions, suggests the 
"Collegian." After criticiz- 
ing the majority of CSU 
coeds for accepting the sta- 
tus quo, Editor John Gas- 
coyne offered these sugges- 
tions for those few who 
would like to change the 
situation. — Check into the 
legality of being denied 
certain privileges on the 
basis of sex. You might be 
surprised how some situa- 
tions are based on tradi- 
tion rather than law. 

—Reach an, understand- 
ing with your parents. Get 
them to sign a notarized 
statement to the effect that 
you are a big girl and cap- 
able of minding your own 
affairs. Present this state- 
ment at the door the first 
time you feel like staying 
out late or all night. % 



wide diversity of types of col- 
leges and universities in the 
polling sample," said Groves. 
"In this regard we were very 
successful. The diversity of 
the schools responding makes 
the consistency of the results 
even more impressive." 

Campuswide referenda 

were held at: Harvard Uni- 
versity, City College of New 
York, University of Minne- 
sota, Brown University, Stet- 
son College, Marquette Uni- 
versity, University of Connec- 
ticut, and the University of 
Michigan. 

Twenty - three campuses 
with a total student population 
of 99,000 have been included 
in NSA statistics. Approx- 
imately 31%, or 30,500 of 
these students actually voted. 



A random sample of student 

opinion was recently taken on 
the Millsaps campus. The re- 
sults seem to verify the polls 
of the NSA, although there 
are some notable differences. 

. . . Almost 98% of the 
Millsaps students polled feel 
that a nation can be justified 
in conscripting its citizens in- 
to the military. 

. . . More than 80% of the 
students felt that changes 
were necessary in the present 
Selective Service System. 

. . . More than 55% of the 
students would prefer to have 
non-military service as an 
equal alternative to military 
service. 

. . . Almost 50% of the stu- 
dents felt they should not be 
given special deferment sim- 
ply because they are college 
students.

\ i>ta Recruiters 
\ i>it Campus 

VISTA recruiters will be 
on the Millsaps campus 
this Friday, February 24, 
according to the assistant 
field director for Volunteers 
In Service to America. 

Over 75 percent of 
VISTA volunteers are 
drawn from college 
campuses. This year VISTA 
will train and recruit 4,500 
Volunteers to serve in 300 
different projects f r o m 
coast to coast, and in 
Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto 
Rico and the Virgin 
Islands. 

The projects are located 
in urban slums, rural 
areas, Indian reservations, 
migrant camps, Job Corps 
centers and mental hospi- 
tals. VISTA trainees may 
express a preference for lo- 
cation and type of work as- 
signment. 

The Volunteers train in- 
tensively for six weeks and 
serve for one year. They 
receive a monthly allow- 
ance to cover basic living 
expenses. At the end of 
service they receive a 
stipend of $50 for each 
month served. 



—to have fathers who are 
more often professional or 
executives; 
—to come from higher in- 
come families. 
All students interested in 
the Corps should see one of 
the former Volunteers when 
they are on campus or come 
by the Purple and White 
office to study one of several 
booklets on the organization. 



Lambda Chi Alpha 
To Initiate Ellington 



Tennessee Governor Buford 
Ellington, who pledged Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha fraternity as a 
Millsaps College student some 
40 years ago, will finally be 
initiated on February 24. 

Ellington, who will be in 
Jackson to speak at Millsaps' 
"Toward a Destiny of Excel- 
lence" convocation, will be 
initiated Friday at 2 p. m. in 
the Galloway Memorial Meth- 
odist Church chapel. 

Ellington dropped out of 
school for financial reasons 
before he could be initiated in- 
to the fraternity. He was a 
preministerial student at Mill- 
saps in 1926-27 and 1929-30. 

Returning to Millsaps for 
an address last year, Elling- 
ton stated, "The things I was 
exposed to at Millsaps influ- 
enced my life more than any- 
thing else, outside my par- 
ents." 

Lambda Chi officials said 
that the Governor had long 
taken an interest in local 
chapter alumni and in the 
fraternity in general. 

The Theta Eta chapter of 
Lambda Chi will honor Gov- 
ernor Ellington Friday at 
noon at a luncheon at the 
King's Inn. A number of dig- 
nitaries, including Senator 
John Stennis and Mississippi 
Governor Paul Johnson, both 
of whom are participating in 
Millsaps' convocation, have 
been invited. 

Ellington, a former direc- 
tor of the Office of Emergen- 
cy Planning, is scheduled to 
speak at his alma mater Sat- 
urday morning at 10 o'clock 
at the A 1 u m n i and Friends 
program of the convocation. 

The program is one of three 
which will feature national 
personalities. Secretary of De- 
fense Robert McNamara will 
speak Friday night at a Foun- 
ders Program, and U. S. Steel 
executive Roger Blough will 
address an industrial and 
business leaders dinner Satur- 
day night. 

Speaking of himself as a 
dropout, in his speech at Mill- 
saps last year, Ellington said, 
* 'Times were hard, money 
was scarce and in my case 
practically non-existent. . . . 
The fact that I moved out into 
the world to become a 
farmer, a Commissioner of 
Agriculture in my adopted 
state and later Governor of 
Tennessee, in no way dimin-

ishes the importance I attach 
to education." 

Ellington moved on to be- 
come a friend of Presidents 
as well. At President Lyndon 
Johnson's request he filled a 
one-year term as director of 
the Office of Emergency 
Planning. He and President 
Johnson have in common an 
interest in farming and cat- 
tle. During his Washington 
tcur he also served unofficial- 
ly in a liaison capacity be- 
tween the White House and the 
nation's governors. 

Last year Ellington was 
initiated into the Millsaps 
chapter of Omicron Delta 
Kappa, nationaf leadership 
honor society for men. 

The Millsaps chapter of 
Lambda Chi Alpha was in- 
stalled in 1924 as the 79th. The 
fraternity now maintains 
chapters at 159 colleges and 
universities throughout the 
United States and Canada.

LETTERS TO 
THE EDITOR 



"A democracy is a society in which 
honorable men may honorably disagree" 

(Adlai Stevenson) 



Dear Editor, 

"My purpose was ... to 
remind the faculty and the ad- 
ministration that we students 
are not unaware of the de- 
ficiences in our faculty, not 
unaware that in many cases 
we are spending money and 
time for no return, if not to 
our very real detriment." 
These beautiful words from 
Mr. Valentine's "A Right to 
Rebel," along with the rest of 
his article, show that Mr. Val- 
entine seems to be unaware 
that the deficiencies of the 
Millsaps teaching situation, as 
with most teaching situations, 
is due not only to the teach- 
ers, but also to the students. 

Mr. Valentine said "T h e 
teacher plays the role of 
teaching and the students pre- 
tend to take notes and ask 
questions as if they really 
could care. And yet ... be- 
neath all this lightheaded 
show is the very real fact of 
the competition for grades." 

Please notice that in these 
few words Mr. Valentine has 
truly caught the essence of 
the "teaching" problem. The 
good, bad, and mediocre 
teachers are all plagued by 
the students who are compet- 
ing for grades— who are not 
competing for knowledge. The 
real problem, then, is the fact 
that the students are content 
with "spending money and 



time for no return." 

I do not condone bad teach- 
ing, nor do I condone bad 
"studenting." I feel that ev- 
ery teacher could categorize 
his students into the counter- 
parts of Mr. Valentine's teach- 
er-types, and I am sure that 
they are thankful for the few 
really excellent students we 
have here at Millsaps, as Mr. 
Valentine is thankful for the 
really excellent teachers we 
have. 

In the same way that some 
teachers are excellent, re- 
gardless of what type stu- 
dents he teaches, a student 
can excell, no matter what 
type teacher he has. The 
learning process is an individ- 
ual effort on the part of the 
student — a student, a real stu- 
dent, is, of course, inspired 
by an excellent teacher, but a 
real student does not depend 
upon an excellent teacher for 
his total inspiration. 

A Millsaps student, then, 
can get an education despite 
what deficiencies may exist in 
the faculty, if he wants an 
education. And, if all the stu- 
dents were excellent, I be- 
lieve that the faculty would 
be inspired to excellence. 

It is a two-way business — 
excellent teachers inspire 
mediocre students ; excellent 
students inspire mediocre 
teachers.

According to Mrs. McMul- 
lan, a cradle has been robbed 
on our campus. Melinda 
Glassco, the robee, was given 
a ring on her birthday, Feb- 
ruary 6, by Moe Calvert (the 
robber?) Carol Ann Walker, 
a freshman robee, is also en- 
gaged. The engager is Billy 
Wade from Ole Miss . 

Only one step away are 
Brenda Street and Karl Busch 
who became pinner and pin- 
nee Saturday, February 11. 
They finally caught Brenda 
and threw her in the shower 
along with Mebbie Davidson 
for good measure. Patsy 
Miles and Sandy Sandusky 
paved the way by getting 
pinned a month ago. 

We hope this means a sere- 
nade, from the Pikes, and 
maybe the Sigs will even give 
another one of their orgies. 
Speaking of orgies, the KA's 
had one Thursday night after 
a stirring solo by Mr. New- 
som. To get in the mood for 
it a few of the pledges locked 
Bill Russell in Scott Coffield's 
old coffin (nothing like having 
a used coffin) and laid him to 
rest in front of sorority row. 
He was released in time to 
see both Speedy Chatham, who 
became dropped to Cindy 
Pharis during Christmas, and 
Phil Mohring dropped to Lin- 
da Williams, captured and 
drugged away to a watery 
fate. 

A humorous, enlightening 



conversation recently over- 
heard in the dorm concerning 
a certain person and a future 
prospect: "Oh, please, tell us 
who he is", "No, no I will 
not tell you who he is be- 
cause if I don't get him then 
you'll never know, (pause) 
But there's also a cute little 
boy in my Spanish class. . . 
(interruption) "No, no He's 
mine, he's mine." 

Much goes on in a dorm 
that is funny, stupid and ri- 
diculous. Like people getting 
chased down the hall with an 
ole limp lamprey and running 
around the laundry room till 
you either collapse or run into 
an innocent bystander. That 
stopped, however, when they 
found out that it makes one 
gain and lose in all the wrong 
places. Outside the dorm 
Speedy Gonzales, better 
known as Queen Jean, has 
been practicing for the roller 
skating championship, along 
with Molly Fewel. it's inter- 
esting to note that they were 
both model pledges. Kinda 
makes you wonder what the 
qualifications are, doesn't it. 

Anastasia and Dion were in 
the running for a while but 
must have decided to drop out 
when Martha Clayton got in- 
jured. Maybe golf, girls. 

A parting warning to whom 
it may concern. The Parking 
Committee will give out tick- 
ets Friday, Saturday, and 
Sunday nights for improper 
parking. 



Therefore, Mr. Editor, only 
when Millsaps College stu- 
dents face up to these all- 
important facts of their own 
deficiences can they hope to 
progress toward becoming a 
part of the "ideal school" to 
which Mr. Valentine refers. 
Very sincerely, 
Peggy Weems 



Fellow Students: 

This issue of the P&W was 
to have carried an advertise- 
ment denouncing the war in 
Vietnam. Despite the facts 
that the ad was accepted and 
paid for— it will not appear. 
It has been argued that should 
the "protest" be printed the 
college may receive reaction 
from various sources. This 
censorship has been "justi- 
fied" by a policy established 
after the contract was made 
to print the ad by which no 
"political" advertise- 
ments will be printed in the 
future editions. 

This censorship seriously 
undermines the freedom of 
students to express them- 
selves on relevant issues. A 
college exists to promote a 
free exchange of ideas and 
opinions; or as we declare in 
the Millsaps College Bulletin: 
"As an institute of higher 
learning, Millsaps College 
fosters an attitude continuing 
intellectual awareness, of tol- 
erance, and of unbiased in- 
quiry, without which true edu- 
cation cannot exist." 

I do not feel that a policy 
of complete censorship of "po- 
litical" ideas justifies this 
censorship. First, the ad was 
of no "political" nature. 
Furthermore, I must oppose 
censorship of any idea in the 
future and feel that the stu- 
dent paper should be an organ 
open to the free discussion 
and expression of ideas. 

I submit that the policy 
should be debated and the 
policy revoked in order that 
the P&W can become an ex- 
pression of student opinion, 
and open exchange of ideas. 

I plead that the students and 
faculty of Millsaps who do not 
desire to prostitute education 
to reaction should seek to 
change this policy which vio- 
lates academic freedom.

FRAT LIFE — Are those Lambda Chi's really studying? They're 
probably just loafing around the fraternity house. That's about 
par for members of Millsaps frats. Or is it more typical to run 
around with burning torches just to impress the female con- 
tingent of the college? The Kappa Alphas seem to find ex- 
treme joy in such. That all goes into the "social" life of a col- 
lege like Millsaps.

HIGH HOPES — Millsaps biology major, Libby House, has the 
desire to go fishing in India after her graduation in June. This 
fishing, she hopes, will be financed by the Fulbright Founda- 
tion. Her future, however, is not too vague, for she already 
has been accepted at several graduate schools. 

Tradition. Of Excellence 



Libby Fishes For 
Exciting Catch 



There are things, to be said 
oi Millsaps College that are 
true of no other college in 
Mississippi. Millsaps is the 
only college in the state re- 
quiring a comprehensive 
examination in the major 
rield, two years of foreign 
language for all degrees, one 
year of mathematics for all 
degrees, and one year oC phi- 
losophy lor the Bachelor of 
Arts program. Millsaps offi- 
cials recently announced a re- 
vised curriculum proposal 
which would provide interdis- 
ciplinary courses and which 
would demonstrate that high- 
er education is not merely an 
intensified version of the high 
school experience. A Bache- 
lor of Music degree was 
recently approved as an addi- 
tion to the Bachelor of Arts 
and Bachelor of Science de- 
grees now offered. 

Millsaps' stress on aca- 
demic excellence has yielded 
such tangible results as the 
following: Through the years 
Millsaps students have won 28 
out of 76 Woodrow Wilson Fel- 
lowships awarded to grad- 
uates of Mississippi institu- 
tions while accounting for ten 



per cent of the liberal arts 
degrees awarded in the state. 
Each year approximately half 
of the senior class enrolls in 
graduate schools, and approx- 
imately half of these receive 
scholarships or assistantships. 

Millsaps' accomrJishments 
in the area of the fine arts is 
well known. There are four 
choral organizations on the 
campus which reflect contin- 
uing credit on the school. One 
of these, the Troubadours, 
was chosen to make a Eu- 
ropean tour for the USO in 
1964. They were offered a Far 
Eastern tour in the fall of 
1964 but had to refuse be- 
cause of the school time it 
would have required. They 
will make a second overseas 
tour for the USO-Department 
of Defense in 1967, this time 
in the Caribbean Command. 
The Players are well known, 
having achieved a reputation 
as one of the outstanding 
drama groups in this region 
in spite of the fact that as yet 
there is no drama department 
at Millsaps (the curriculum 
proposal calls for the estab- 
lishment of such a depart- 
ment). 



By SHIRLEY CALDWELL 

A Millsaps College coed has 
dreams of going fishing in 
India. 

Furthermore, 21 - year - old 
Libby House hopes to do her 
fishing at the expense of the 
Fulbright Foundation. The 
(iulfport senior has applied 
for one of those hard-to-come- 
by items, a Fulbright Fellow- 
ship, and has passed a quali- 
fying exam through the state 
committee. 

Miss House is also interest- 
ed in making a comparative 
study of the fish of India and 
of her native Mississippi. She 
points out that the fish in In- 
dia have different habitats 
and environments and thus 
different adaptations. 

"For example,'' she ex- 
plains, "in India there is a 
dry season followed by a mon- 
soon season, a high salinity 
content in the waters followed 
by a low salinity content. I 
want to see how the fish are 
able to adapt to these 
changes." 

Libby is not exactly hopeful 
about receiving the desired 
grant. Although she scored 
above the 99th percentile on 
her Graduate Record Exam, 
a fact which demonstrates 
that she is one of the very 
top biology students in the na- 
tion, Libby points out that not 
too many applicants are 
being accepted for India and 
also that she is under the ac- 
ceptable age limit. At any 
rate, she has been offered 
National Defense Education 
Act and National Aeronautic 
and Space Administration fel- 
lowships at two of the na- 

Saturday morning the con- 
tion's leading graduate 
schools, so the future's not too 
much of a problem, whether 
or not she gets the Fulbright. 
She will enter graduate 
school, hoping eventually to 
receive her doctorate. She'll 
probably study ecology, possi- 
bly marine ecology. 

Some of her dormitory- 
mates find it difficult to un- 
derstand her interest in fish. 
In addition to the fact that 
She has spent most of her 
life on the Mississippi coast, 
she has the added incentive 
of a fiance who is devoted to 
marine biology. Bob Tomson, 
a former Millsaps biology 
student, gave the Biology De- 
partment his extensive col- 
lection of marine organisms. 
He is planning a career in 
wildlife management. 

Her work in India, however, 
wouldn't be all hook-and-line 
fishing. The biggest part of 
the collection she would 
study she would obtain from 
fisheries. Her reference col- 




lection of fishes will be added 
to the Millsaps biology collec- 
tion. Her study would include 
classification of the samples 
she collected, using the tech- 
niques which she has learned 
in her work at Millsaps. 

Libby's ability in science 
has already been recognized 
by the National Science 
Foundation. In the summer of 
1965 she received a summer 
research grant to Louisiana 
State University, where she 
participated in work on a new 
drug, goldthioglucose. 

Last summer she studied 
ichthyology at the Gulf Coast 
Research Laborator in Ocean 
Springs, Mississippi. 

At Millsaps Libby is known 
as the girl with the squirrel, 
even though "Squirrel" is no 
longer with her. Last fall she 
found an abandoned baby 
squirrel and took it back to 
her dormitory, feeding it with 
a milk preparation and nurs- 
ing it to health. "Squirrel' 
lived in the dormitory for 
some months, despite the 
fact that the maids refused to 
enter the room. Finally the 
time came when the dormi- 
tory matron felt the animal 
should go, and Squirrel was 
given to some visiting sci- 
entists from the Biology De- 
partment at Memphis State, 
from which Libby occasional- 
ly receives progress reports. 

Whatever the future brings 
— v nether a trip to India or 
enrollment in a graduate 
school — Libby House plans 
to do a lot of fishing. And 
it's a pretty sure bet that the 
scientific world will benefit by 
it. 

Miss House is the daughter 
Of Mr. and Mrs. Ladd H. 
House of 1610 18th Avenue, 
Gulfport. 



AH persons interested in 
being Editor or Business 
Manager of the BOBASHE- 
LA for the academic year 
1967 1968 should make ap- 
plication to Dr. William 
Horan before March 15. 
Applications should include 
personal experience, plans 
and changes that would be 
incorporated in the new 
Bobashela, and a resume 
of extracurricular activi- 
ties. 



London Grafica 
Exhibit s Collection 

Representing this country's 
largest graphic arts gallery, 
London Grafica Arts recently 
exhibited at Millsaps an 
exemplary collection of its 
original graphics. 

Held in the Forum Room 
of the library, Wednesday, 
February 15, the exhibit fea- 
tured woodcuts, lithographs, 
etchings, and serigraphs. A 
selective collection of prints 
by modem masters, such as 
Picasso, Dufy, and Renoir, 
was shown. A number of 
lesser contemporary artists 
from countries throughout 
the world were also repre- 
sented. 

London Grafica Arts is a 
member of the London Arts 
Group, an international hold- 
ing company. Each year it 
sends an educational repre- 
sentative to each of four re- 
gional districts. These repre- 
sentatives contact those col- 
lege art departments which 
are willing to sponsor exhibi- 
tions. They then preside over 
the sale at each participating 
school. This year the South- 
ern representative is Mr. 
Charles Snead, who was in 
charge of the Millsaps exhi- 
bition.

ICMA Tells Of 
Local Gov t. 
Internship Plan 

This year the Internation- 
al City Managers' Associa- 
tion (ICMA) announces a 
new program to provide 
summer internships in local 
government for twenty col- 
lege students. Through a 
grant of $300 by ICMA and 
payment by the participat- 
ing cities of $600, the in- 
terns under this program 
are guaranteed a minimum 
of $900 for the 10-week in- 
ternship. 

ICMA's summer intern 
program does not require 
that the intern find an 
opening for summer work, 
for ICMA will locate posi- 
tions for the interns which 
will provide meaningful 
work experience and the 
opportunity to learn about 
the functions and goals of 
municipal government. 

Applications* are due at 
ICMA by March 1st. All 
those interested in the sum- 
mer intern program should 
contact Professor Adams 
as soon as possible.

Majors Lose 
3 More Tilts 



The M i 1 1 s a p s basketball 
team took its 21st, 22nd, and 
23rd losses of the season last 
week against the University 
of the South (Sewanee), Wil- 
liam Carey, and Southwestern 
of Memphis. 

The Majors lost an 82-63 de- 
cision to Sewanee Monday in 
the worst showing of the 
week. 

The Tigers piled up a 39-23 
halftime advantage and were 
never seriously threatened. 
The Majors went from an 18- 
12 lead to a 19-25 deficit in a 
matter of five and one half 
minutes early in the first 
half. 

Sewanee hit a torrid 32 of 
57 field goal attempts and 18 
of 26 free tosses. Millsaps was 
good on one third of its shots 
from the field, 25 of 74, and 
connected on 13 of 18 free 
shots. 

The rebounding was close. 
Sewanee edging out a 42-41 
lead in that department. 

Ed Grant's 21 point? was 
high for the Tigs, Tom Ward 
followed with 20, Larry Cun- 
ningham got 19, and Frank 
Stainback 10. 

Bill Lax, having one of his 
better offensive nights, 
sacked 22 points and Jerry 
Sheldon nabbed 10. 

On Tuesday night, the Ma- 
jors dropped a 66-57 contest 
to Southwestern. It was the 
ninth consecutive loss for the 
Millsaps squad since a vic- 
tory over Lambuth earli- 
er this season. 

The score in the tilt was 
tied 12 times, including a 30- 
30 halftime deadlock. 

Bill Lax paced the Majors 



to a 36-32 advantage shortly 
after the intermission but the 
Lynx soon knotted the score 
at 36-all and seconds later 
went to stay ahead. 

The Lynx hit 53.1 per cent 
of their field shots and 84.4 
per cent from the charity 
line compared with a 36.1 per- 
centage for the Majors from 
the field and 55.6 from the 
line. 

The Lynx hit 14 free throws 
and Millsaps five, making the 
difference in the score. Both 
teams hit 26 field goals and 
the Majors were 43-33 lead- 
ers in the rebounding. 

Jack Tilton scored 18 for 
Southwestern and Rigan 17. 

Bill Lax paced the well 
balanced Millsaps scor- 
ing spread with 12 points, 
Bobby Luckett and Ron Dun- 
can contributed 10 each and 
Jerry Sheldon was good for 
nine. 

William Carey's Crusaders 
dropped the Millsaps record 
to 1-24 Thursday night with 
an 81-74 Victory. 

Again the field goal totals 
were very close, the Crusad- 
ers making 33 and the Majors 
32, but the Hattiesburg based 
bombers scored on 15 free 
tosses to Millsaps' 10. The 
Majors were outdone on the 
backboards 46-37. 

Joe Stover and Danny Ruf- 
fin did most of the damage 
to the Major's, scoring 32 and 
26 points respectively. 

Jerry Sheldon was high for 
the Majors with 22 points, Bill 
Drury was next with 17 fol- 
lowed by Bobby Luckett with 
14 and Bill Lax with 13. 



Majors Near End 
Of Spring Football 



By SHIRLEY CALDWELL 

Coach Harper Davis' Mill- 
saps Majors concluded their 
third week of spring football 
practice, Wednesday, Febru- 
ary 22, with hustle and de- 
termination still prime assets 
of the 30-man group. 

The drills were somewhat 
hampered early last week by 
dismal weather conditions, 
but Davis and assistant coach 
Tommy Ranager still man- 
aged to get their forces 
through several days of good, 
hard outdoor practice. 

The Millsaps coaching staff 
is faced with a difficult re- 
building job in replacing the 
lettermen gone from last 
year's squad, which went 4-3-1 
for the season and was the 
first Millsaps team to have a 
winning football campaign 
since 1956. 

Gone from the team are 
the mainstays of the 1966 
season, including quarter- 
back Danny Neely, whose 
passing arm ranks him 
among the all-time high Mill- 
saps aerial artists. Also lost 



art leading rusher Troy Lee 
Jenkins, leading receiv- 
ers Ted Weller and Edwin 
Massey, and a host of out- 
standing linemen. 

However, the Millsaps 
coaching staff has been im- 
pressed with the spirit shown 
by the returnees, who include 
some of the leading linemen 
and the core of last year's 
defensive secondary. 

Davis has spent much of 
the early period of training on 
basic fundamentals. "We've 
been concentrating hard on 
important items like blocking, 
tackling, handing the ball off, 
and other things a team has 
to do well to win," remarks 
the Millsaps coach. 

-Another phase on which a 
large amount of time is being 
spent is pass defense. "We're 
working particularly hard on 
one-on-one situations," com- 
ments Davis. 

No single players have been 
singled out by the Millsaps 
coaches for individual atten- 
tion, but the group as a whole 
has progressed nicely both in

11 G adders 
For 1967 



By KENT ROBERTSON 

Eleven outstanding high 
school seniors have agreed to 
join the Majors' gridiron 
squad next season. They hope- 
fully represent another fresh- 
man crew of the same out- 
standing caliber as last year s 
freshman squad. 

Signed from Jackson Mur- 
rah High are guard Hap Post 
and halfback Buddy Bartling, 
the son of former Millsaps 
coach Doby Bartling. From 
Jackson Provine High School 
is halfback Brett Adams. 

Tackle Rusty Boshers, split 
end Randy Williams, and full- 
back Sonny Bradshaw are 
from Gillcrest High School in 
Memphis, Tenn. Other Ten- 
nessee recruits include quar- 
terback Mike Taylor and full- 
back Steve Bain from Mem- 
phis University High School. 

Jack Thompson, from Mad- 
ison - Ridgeland High School, 
will play tackle. 

Two halfback standouts who 
will be playing here next 
year are Bobby McCloud 
from Brandon High School 
and Ronnie Grantham from 
Crystal Springs High School. 
Grantham is the brother of 
former Ole' Miss end and 
present New York Jets line- 
backer, Larry Grantham. 

Coach Davis says he hopes 
to sign three or four more 
high school seniors in the 
near future.

Independents Lead 
Intramural Action 



By CINDY JORDAN 

With a big jump-off the In- 
dependents controlled the first 
tip of the '67 girls' basketball 
season to get the season off 
to a fine start. 

For it to have been the first 
game, both the Zetas and the 
Independents played with a 
surprising amount of smooth- 
ness. The Zetas, however, 
were overpowered by the In- 
dys' finesse in ball handling 
and skill in shooting and had 
to submit to a 54 to 10 de- 
feat. 

Starting line-up for the 
Zetas was Joyce Steen, Susan 
Kunzelman, and Evelyn 
Snipes at forward and Nancy 
Babb, Docia Gott and Pat 
Lesh at guard. During the 
game Margie Hogg and Sue 
Ware also saw action. 

attitude and performance, ac- 
cording to Davis. 

The Millsaps head coach 
celebrated his third year at 
Millsaps lasti season by bring- 
ing the school its best record 
in 12 campaigns. 

More of the same is planned 
in the next few days for the 
Major football aspirants, with 
continued emphasis on fun- 
damentals. 



The Indys starters were 
Gladys Walters, Mary Duke, 
and Sandy Kees at forward, 
and Iva Lou Davis, Rieda 
Hollingsworth, and 
Fat Smythe at guard. A lso 
playing for the Indys were 
Nancy Thompson and Marilyn 
Maxwell at guard. 

The high scorer for the 
game was Mary Duke who 
sacked 30 points. 

KD's vs Chi O's 

The following night t h e 
KD's and Chi O's played each 
other. The starters for the 
KD's, wearing the "green" 
vests, were Esther Marett, 
Vicki Ball, Irene Cajolas, 
Polly Dement, Lynn 
Marshall, Melinda Glassco 
and Dale Brackin. 

In the navy blue for the 
Chi O's were Mebbie David- 
son, Phyllis Harris, Cindy 
Jordan, Maggie Watkins, 
Jane Zickler, Gloria Horton, 
Virginia Ann Jones, Carolyn 
Wiggers, Ann Byrd, Debbie 
Williams, and Mary Jane 
Waddlington. 

The Ohi Omegas won the 
game 19 to 6. Mebbie David- 
son scored 12 points, making 
her high-scorer. 

Wednesday night the Phi 
Mus defeated the Zetas 42 to 



8. If you saw the game, how- 
ever, you know that there 
was more action than the 
score indicates. 

Playing for the victorious 
Phi Mus were Kathryn Parks, 
Peggy Longest, Susan Fowler, 
Caroline Massey, Margarette 
Willson, and Muriel Brad- 
shaw. Kathryn Parks made 
the most points with 28 to her 
credit. 

Indys vs Chi O's 
The Independents vs. Chi 
O's game was perhaps one of 
the most exciting played this 
week because of the close 
score. The Chi O's accumula- 
ted 24 points with their high- 
scorer Phyllis Harris making 
12 of them, but they were not 
enough to top the Indys 29 
points. The high scorer for 
the game was Mary Duke who 
scored 18 points for the Indys. 

We want to thank Richard 
Bundy, Mebbie Davidson, 
Bengie Crawford, Sandy Kees, 
Gary Stewart. Joyce Steen, 
Jimmy McKay and Coach 
Monty for calling the games. 
Refereeing is a tough job, 
and we appreciate their 
efforts.

College 
As Tax 



Education 
Deduction 



Senator Abraham Ribicoff 
(D-Conn) recently introduced 
his bill to give tax relief to 
parents and students who pay 
the costs of a college edu- 
cation. 

The proposal provides an in- 
come tax credit of up to $325 
on the first $1,500 of tuition, 
fees, books, and supplies. It 
would go to anyone who pays 
these expenses for a student 
at an institution of higher edu- 
cation. 

The measure this year has 
picked up strong support; it 
is co-sponsored by 46 Sena- 
tors from both political par- 
ties and from all sections of 
the country. 

It is the same as that 
Ribicoff has introduced in 
previous Congresses with one 
exception: An amendment 
would include coverage for 
students in accredited post- 
secondary business, trade, 
technical and other vocational 
schools. 

Senator Ribicoff pointed out 
that under his proposal over 
two - thirds of the benefits 
would go to families earning 
less than $10,000 a year. 

In a statement on the Sen- 
ate floor, Senator Ribicoff 
said: 

"Now we must decide if, as 
a nation, we are to treat edu- 
cation costs as we do the in- 
terest on a home mortgage, 
or flood damage, or health

constitute the backbone of

Such tax relief is needed 
and will be needed, he ex- 
plained, because the costs of 
going to college continue to in- 
crease.

McNamara, Blough, and Ellington 
Push Campaign Toward Success 

Education Is Key To 
Technological Equality 




FOUNDERS PROGRAM— Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, speaking in the Coliseum, 
Friday, February 24, told the audience of the gap existing between the developed and under- 
developed nations of the world. An even greater gap, however, stated the featured speaker, 
is that between the developd nations themselves. He noted education as the answer to closing 
this gap which is threatening the security of the world.— Photo by Alex Wright. 



'We Can Meet The Goal' 
Ellington Tells Supporters 



A prompt and overwhelm- 
ing response by Millsaps Col- 
lege supporters to the Ford 
Foundation Challenge was 
forecast Saturday by Gov. Bu- 
ford Ellington of Tennessee at 
an Alumni and Friends Pro- 
gram at the Christian Center. 

"We will meet the goal," 
Ellington, a native Mississip- 
pian and a former student of 
Millsaps, declared. "How 
great it is. . .to believe that 
we can do the job." 

"With its proud history of 
service and its promise of a 
glowing future, Millsaps in 
particular must recognize. , . 
(that) now is a time for ac- 
celeration to continue its role 
as one of the nation's most 
distinguished church - related 
liberal arts colleges," Gov El- 
lington said. 

He added that not only 
alumni and friends of the col- 
lege but "every man who be- 
lieves in higher education" in 
the Millsaps area has a part 
in the campaign to raise $3.75 
million to match a $1.50 mil- 
lion Ford Foundation grant. 

Millsaps, the Governor said, 
is a college of character" 
which is seeking to broaden 
student horizons and to lift 
the eyes and heart of the stu- 
dent "toward the higher at- 
tributes of life." 



"From campus to class 
room it guides those charged 
to it for higher education into 
the certainty of ready accept- 
ance of responsibility to neigh- 
bor, to state to church and 
to country. 

"That readiness to accept 
responsibility made this meet- 
ing here today possible." . 

The speaker drew ap- 
plause when he said, while re- 
ferring to respect of students 
for their school, that he 
was filled with disgust by 
"young people in this nation 
who think that the maximum 
sacrifice they can make for 
their country is to burn their 
draft card." 

"Thank God," he said, "that 
these are not the students 
making the main stream of 
college life today." 

Mississippi Gov. Paul B. 
Johnson introduced Ellington 
as "a faithful friend of long 
standing" and presented him 
with a gavel hewn from "The 
largest magnolia tree in the 
world." 

He said Ellington had held 
"a valued place in the highest 
councils in the nation," the 
Tennessee executive having 
served as director of the Of- 
fice of Emergency Planning, 
as a member of the National 
Security Council and as the 



administration's "point of con- 
tact" with state and local gov- 
ernments.

of the board of EBASCO Serv-

'Technological advance 
cannot come into being with- 
out improving the foundation 
of it all. And that foundation 
is education," Secretary of 
Defense Robert McNamara 
stated as he addressed the 
Founders Program of the 
Millsaps' 'Toward A Destiny 
of Excellence" convocation 
Friday at 8:00 p. m. in the 
Coliseum. 

Speaking of the gap be- 
tween developed and under- 
developed portions of the 
world, McNamara saw no 
slight economic gap, but a 
huge "seismic fissure," which 
eventually may produce ex- 
treme waves of violence. 

It has become the duty of 
the wealthy nations of the 
world to work to close this 
threatening gap. Leaving such 
a wide schism will be a def- 
inite threat to the security of 
this nation and the world. 

However, McNamara point- 
ed out a sizable gap between 
these wealthy nations, name- 
ly that of a "brain drain." 
America is stepping out in 
front of Europe in technology 
and management. Not only 
are people flowing into the 
New World, said McNamara, 
but the European, or Old 
World, education is deficient 



to the point of being crip- 
pling. Without closing the gap, 
the "fissure" has no hope of 
being lessened. 

As a sort of thesis, McNa- 
mara stated, "Without mod- 
em science and technology 
. porgress of any kind, 
spiritual, humanistic, eco- 
nomic, or otherwise, will be- 
come increasingly less possi- 
ble everywhere in the world. 

Progress is being made, but 
much more is still necessary. 
The desire seems to be 
present but the job of raising 
money still lies ahead. 

In closing, McNamara said, 
"Mississippi has a very great 
potential. . .And that potential 
will spring from what is great 
and good in its past . .and in 
its people." 

U. S. Senator John C. Sten- 
nis introduced the featured 
speaker of the night as one 
who was second only to the 
President "in power, im- 
portance, and awesome, re- 
sponsibility." Giving a brief 
sketch of the Secretary's life. 
Stennis told of McNamara's 
years of connection with the 
Harvard School of Business 
Administration both as a stu- 
dent and as a faculty mem- 
ber and of his tenure as presi- 
dent of the Ford Motor Com- 
pany. 



Alum Contributes Half Million 
In Cash, Assets To Millsaps 



Woodville, Mississippi, is 
one of those little towns you 
miss as you drive by if you're 
not looking hard. 

But Woodville, Mississippi, 
will be designated by a huge 
gold star on every map at 
Millsaps College because of 
one resident, Mr. Robert Ma- 
son Strieker. He is the man 
who gave $500,000 to launch 
the "Toward A Destiny of Ex- 
cellence" convocation in a big 
way. 

Announced at the Business 
and Industrial Leaders' Din- 
ner Saturday night, February 
25, the gift of half a million 
dollars was made in cash and 
assets. 

Dr. Benjamin B. Graves 
told of his meeting Mr. Striek- 
er last summer and uncover- 



ing the unusual story of this 
man's college career. 

Now 82 years old, Mr. 
Strieker knew he had only 
enough money to complete 
two years of college. So by 
permission of Dr. William 
Murrah, president at that 
time, he was allowed to take 
the courses he wanted instead 
of the prescribed freshman 
curriculum. By allowing this 
breach of college policy, Dr. 
Murrah helped create Robert 
Mason Strieker of Woodville, 
Mississippi. 

Recently, Mr. Strieker re- 
turned to the Millsaps cam- 
pus for the first time in 60 
years. Writing to Dr. Graves, 
he said, "That visit brought 
back memories of my best 
years. . ." He recalled how 
he and his double first cousin 



would go down the hill away 
from the campus proper and 
read poetry or discuss philos- 
ophy. Those are the things 
that made "his Millsaps" so 
very special.

The Impossible Dream 



Mississippi saw one of her finer hours 
last weekend. The mayor of her capitol 
city made everyone forget Allen Thomp- 
son's more immature days (when he ad- 
dressed approving Citizen Council 
crowds) as he opened his arms in wel- 
come to the most respected member of 
the late John Kennedy's Brain Trust. 
Senator John Stennis and Defense Sec- 
retary Robert McNamera stood side by 
side, their faces shining no less bril- 
liantly than the Phi Beta Kappa keys 
dangling from their vests. 

The National Broadcasting Company 
carried a bulletin from Mississippi. 
There was no racial disturbance: the 
Secretary of Defense had made a major 
policy statement for the United States 
of America. The Executive Editor of the 
New York Times, the Chairman of the 
powerful House Rules Committee, and 
America's First Lady of Literature 
marched in solemn procession to the ca- 
dence of thunderous applause from fel- 
low Mississippians. A Jackson attorney 
exchanged quips with the President of 
United States Steel about former foot- 
ball days. And a Mississippi millionaire 
gave half a million dollars to Millsaps 
College. 

All of this was no accident; it was the 
product of the most ambitious plan in 
our university's history. The men mak- 
ing that plan a reality deserve more 
than the thanks of Millsaps students. 
They deserve our rededication to the 
cause we champion as we move toward 
that destiny. 

Excellence must be our watchword as 
it was theirs, for excellence they did 
achieve in this convocation. The events 
Friday night were flawless. Before this 
writer reached the Heidelberg Hotel, the 



Clarion-Ledger was on the street with 
the story on McNamara covering the 
front page. Less than an hour later NBC 
was including it in its news analysis. 
Credit for publicity is deserving. 

The luncheon Saturday was a singular 
success. Handling so many hungry and 
enthusiastic people (Governors Ellington 
and Johnson were inspiring) with such 
finesse and grace was paralleled only 
by the splendor of the food itself. Credit 
is again deserving. 

The President's reception was one of 
the highlights of the weekend. Meeting 
the President of US Steel, Mississippi's 
and Tennessee's Governors, and others 
of similar rank made the blood tingle a 
bit. One could only hope that they were 
as impressed as you were. Just a glance 
at Mrs. Blough's happy countenance let 
you know all was well. How could it have 
been otherwise with Southern charm and 
gentility in its finest hour? 

The banquet atop the Heidelberg was 
so elegant and impressive that one won- 
dered if he were still in Mississippi. And 
as those two days passed into history, we 
remember Dr. Graves' final call for ac- 
tion as the most eloquent and stirring of 
all. Yet he captained a team that never 
could have been beaten. Praise is de- 
served; we know not how to offer it. On- 
ly, we do know each team member finds 
a place in the spirit of the Impossible 
Dream: 
"Men who 

see the invisible 

hear the inaudible 

believe the incredible 

think the unthinkable 
Are men who do the impossible."

Indonesia: 



Star In The East 



By LEE MAKAMSON 

One time undisputed speak- 
er for all of Indonesia, Su- 
karno has lost all power, has 
become useless to the pres- 
ent military government, and 
faces probable trial for graft 
and conspiracy. 

Sukarno, was once the sym- 
bol of nationalist efforts 
against Dutch colonialism and 
in 1949 was elected President 
of the independent Indonesian 
government. 

After the failure of a Com- 
munist rebellion in 1948, the 
Partai Kommunist Indonesia 
(PKI) began to emerge as a 
major political force in Indo- 
nesia. Paralleling this was the 
emergence of the Indonesian 
Army un.der Gen. Nasution. 
Walking a very narrow tight- 
rope, Sukarno successfully 
mediated most conflicts and 
prohibited a clash between 
the armed forces and the 
PKI. 

By mid-1950 Sukarno had 
consolidated his power and 
proclaimed his Marxist ide- 
ology of 44 Nasakom"— the fu- 
sion of nationalism, religion, 
and Communism. He hoped 
that as Western colonialism 
receded in Asia, his own star 
would rise dramatically. This 
was challengede, however as 
the British welded Malaya, 



Singapore, and its former pos- 
sessions in Borneo into a sin- 
gle nation more responsive to 
advice from London than Ja- 
karta. Sukarno decided to 
crush Malaysia and the de- 
cision became an important 
domestic strategy. As Sukar- 
no's ability to stand between 
two conflicting groups weak- 
ened, the idea of focusing the 
attention of the PKI and the 
army to an external 4 'threat" 
became politically expedient. 

Anger at the election of Ma- 
laysia to a split term of one 
year on the U. N. Security 
Council caused Sukarno to 
withdraw Indonesia from the 
United Nations. This marked 
a shift in foreign policy from 
nonalignment to alliance with 
Communist China. Relations 
with the United States de- 
terioated to almost a break 
in diplomatic relations. Citing 
U. S. support of South Viet- 
nam and landing U. S. troops 
in the Dominican Republic as 
examples of 44 Nekolim", neo- 
colonialism, Sukarno de- 
nounced the U.S. saying, 44 To 
hell with U.S. aid." 

Fed up with saber rattling 
against Malaysia since it was 
depressing the nation's econ- 
omy, the military formed the 
Council of Generals to capture 
political control of Indonesia. 



Sukarno passed the word of 
the brewing conspiracy to the 
PKI. If Sukarno fell, so would 
the Communists; and if the 
PKI coup to secure Sukarno's 
rule were successful, then Su- 
karno would be head of a 
Moslem Communist state — 
which he wanted. If the coup 
failed to stop the Council of 
Generals, then Sukarno could 
condemn it. 

Lt. Colonel Untang, nomi- 
nal leader of the coup, seized 
Radio Jakarta, kidnapped 
several members of the Coun- 
cil of Generals, and an- 
nounced the formation of a 45- 
man "Cabinet" to run the 
country. Untang said the coup 
was necessary to forestall a 
threatened right-wing putsch 
by the Generals who had CIA 
support. 

Gen. Abdul Haris Nasution 
(Sukarno's anti - Communist 
Defense Minister) and Gen. 
Suharto staged a vigorous 
counter-coup to regain con- 
trol of the country. Indecision 
by the PKI leaders and lack 
of expected Chinese aid 
helped defeat the pro-Sukar- 
no coup. 

Sukarno named Suharto to 
rule Indonesia by de facto 
power until elections in 1968. 
Sukarno was retained as titu- 



LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS 




A Satire On Subversion 



By SANDRA WHITE 

They say that once you've 
lived on an island, you'll nev- 
er be the same again. This 
is not necessarily true, fellow 
students. If you have the un- 
shakeable conviction that Mill- 
saps is the mainland, Com- 
munism can be fought here 

lar head of the new military 
government to serve as a 
lighting rod to divert crit- 
icism from the military and 
to avoid conflict with any Su- 
karno support. 

Relations with the United 
States have become increas- 
ingly better, while thousands 
of Chinese who have lived in 
Indonesia have been forced to 
leave. This month Indonesian 
officials have expressed a wil- 
lingness to join into a military 
alliance with most of the 
southeast Asian nations 
against China. An indication 
that Indonesia has escaped 
downfall into the Communist 
bloc is the fact that both the 
Indonesian Supreme Court 
and the executive department 
demand the trial of Sukarno 
on charges of misuse of gov- 
ernment money and conspira- 
cy with the PKI in the at- 
tempted coup. When Indone- 
sia's star does rise, it will not 
be red. 



as well as back home in 
Yoknapatawpa. The key sub- 
version to watch for is dif- 
ference. 

We all know that there is 
only one true political party, 
one right religion, and one set 
of ethics. Anyone not acknowl- 
edging these Eternal Verities 
is black and-or evil. What this 
campus needs is an OSF 
(Oasis Security Force) for the 
Harmony and Consistency of 
Ideas. One of the first duties 
of this force would be the iso- 
lation of dangerous books 
(e.g. Oliver Twist, The Girl 
Scout Handbook, The Koran). 
They could be burned at sun- 
down with a few campus radi- 
cals for inflammatory pur- 
poses. 

If these measures seem too 
conservative, we refer you to 
those crusaders who have al- 
ready taken up the torch, lit- 
erally. They can be identified 
by a distinctive looking foam 
at the mouth and a wrinkled 
forehead that comes from 
constriction of the brain. 
When someone leans across 
the table in the grill and 
mumbles 4 'All social workers

man?" You realize that you

LETTERS TO 
THE EDITOR 



// 



A democracy is a society in which 
honorable men may honorably disagree" 

(Adlal Stevenson) 



To the students, faculty, ad- 
ministration, and support- 
ers of Millsaps College: 

We would like to express 
our deep admiration to the 
school and everyone con- 
nected with it for striving to 
maintain at Millsaps the tra- 
ditional American policy of 
freedom of speech. It is a 
profound tribute to everyone 
concerned that such a policy 
was maintained to some ex- 
tent in the face of such great 
pressure. 

We would like to make it 
clear that we are solidly be- 
hind Millsaps in its struggle 
to become a great institution, 
and we would like to see Mill- 
saps receive the large sum of 
money it so urgently needs. 
We feel, however, that there 
are certain moral and re- 
ligious principles that take 



precedence over the attain- 
ment of money — one of these 
is the need to stop the killing 
of the Vietnamese civilians. 

Many people feel that De- 
fense Secretary McNamara's 
role in the Millsaps fund drive 
is distinct and separate from 
his role in the Vietnamese 
war. We do not believe that 
this is the case. Mr. McNa- 
mara was invited to Jackson 
because of his prominence re- 
sulting from his role in the 
war in Vietnam; it was 
thought that his fame would 
lend prestige to our funds 
drive and help us gain pub- 
licity and money. Although 
Mr. McNamara is certainly 
a brilliant man, we do not 
like the war he and his De- 
fense Department are fight- 
ing. We do not think he de- 
serves the high esteem ac- 



Open Forum: 



'Petty People' Cited 
As Desirable Assets 



By JAN DAWKINS 

"Petty people" were the 
words President Graves used 
to describe" students distribut- 
ing anti-Vietnam sheets be- 
fore Chapel on February 23. 
It is unfortunate that Mill- 
saps' administrative head 
takes this attitude. Graves' 
main concern was that the cir- 
culation of anti-Vietnam lit- 
erature proceeding the ap- 
pearance of Secretary of De- 
fense Robert McNamara 
would cast an unfavorable 
light on Millsaps and thus in- 
jure the school's possibility of 
receiving the million and a 
half dollar Ford Foundation 
grant. I believe that contro- 
versy, well handled, could aid 
in not only the acquisition of 
the grant, but also in the 
general prestige of Millsaps. 

Although hailed as a mem- 
ber of the minority of liberal 
colleges in the South, Millsaps 
in the past has not completely 
lived up to its reputation. Ef- 
forts have been made by the 
administration to have speak- 
ers for Chapel ranging from 
radical-conservative to reac- 
tionary, and they have even 
had an advocate of draft-card 
burning. These efforts are 
commendable and hopefully 
will be continued and expand- 
ed. However, if efforts on the 
part of the student body to 
distribute controversial litera- 
ture are labeled as petty, then 



the constitutional foundation 
on which the United States 
was established should be 
termed petty, and Millsaps 
should no longer be lauded as 
a liberal-minded college. 

Mmsaps is regarded as one 
of the few Southern academ- 
ic institutions which not only 
tolerates but fosters student 
opinions voiced on campus. 
To date, the administration 
has been very open - minded 
and democratic. However, the 
democratic spirit of Millsaps, 
the i d e a 1 s on which it was 
built, and the high reputation 
it has earned in the South is 
in danger of being injured if 
student attempts of free 
speech are to be regarded in 
the future as petty and unde- 
sirable. 

As a result, valid controver- 
sial opinions voiced by the 
students of Millsaps could be 
beneficial to the school. Be- 
cause Millsaps is distin- 
guished in its liberal-minded 
attitude toward student opin- 
ions, it is worthy of being rec- 
ognized and rewarded for its 
democratic efforts. Therefore, 
campus controversy is desira- 
ble and an asset to Millsaps 
and to the South, and will aid 
in acquiring the Ford Foun- 
dation grant. Hopefully, in the 
future, the administration will 
continue to be as open-mind- 
ed and as democratic as it has 
been in the past. 



corded him, and we do not 
think Millsaps should use that 
reputation to gain money — 
that is why we protested his 
presence. 

We have been accused of 
being naive in thinking our 
actions in Jackson can stop 
the injustices of the war in 
Vietnam. This accusation 
shows a lack of faith in the 
American democratic process 
— our government must be 
controlled by us, the people. 
We cannot very well go to 
Washington or Vietnam; we 
must exert whatever influence 
we have over our government 
and our leaders from here in 
Mississippi — we live here. 

In an unfortunate confusion 
of ideas and personalities, we 
have been accused of hating 
ourselves and other people. 
We believe in the infinite 
worth of each and every hu- 
man individual. We do not 
hate the people who are op- 
posed to our position or the 
people who are fighting the 
war; we disagree with their 
evaluation of the Vietnamese 
situation. 

We believe that they are mis- 
informed, and we welcome ev- 
ery opportunity to present 
them with our opinions and 
with the information that 
causes us to be so firmly op- 
posed to the present foreign 
policy of our government. 

We would like to wish suc- 
cess for Millsaps, but when 
the welfare of Millsaps comes 
into conflict with the welfare 
of millions of Vietnamese 
peasants, we must affirm our 
allegiance to the common 
good of all humanity — even if 
it means the loss of short-run 
material gains. 
The hottest places in Hell 
are reserved for those 
who, in a time of great 
moral crisis, maintain 
their neutrality.— Dante

DILEMMA 67, the second 
annual student - sponsored 
symposium, will be held 
March 3-4, at Southwestern at 
Memphis. DILEMMA is 
founded on the need of the 
intellectually curious man to 
examine areas of current con- 
cern. This year DILEMMA 
'67 plans to explore the prob- 
lem of "Man— His Identity in 
a Changing World". We want 
to create the opportunity to 
listen to and talk with indi- 
viduals who are involved with 
this question. Spokesmen will 
represent the fields of litera- 
ture and the arts, politics and 
government. 




COMMITTEE OF TWO — Officially welcoming Governor Bu- 
ford Ellington (left) of Tennessee back to his home state of 
Mississippi are President Benjamin B. Graves and Governor 
Paul B. Johnson. Governor Ellington was presented a gavel 
from Governor Johnson which had been hewn from the larg- 
est magnolia tree in the world. This was given as a sign of 
the friendship existing between the neighbor states. 

Publish inglndustryCulprit 
In High Textbook Prices 



(ACP) Why are textbooks so 
expensive? Is it the fault of 
the university - owned "non- 
profit" bookstore whose 
prices are as high as those 
of the profit-making book 
stores? Is the publishing in- 
dustry to blame? 

Both contribute to the situa- 
tion, but the greater culprit, 
without a doubt, is the pub- 
lishing industry. TIME maga- 
zine recently revealed that 
the book industry relies on 
textbooks and children's 
books to support gambling 
losses on adult grade books. 
All the major publishers, 
TIME said, "print text and 
reference books, as well as 
children's books, which are 
dependable money - makers. 
Their profitable textbook and 
paperback operations enable 
them to gamble on adult 
trade books — which as a rule 
lose money." One publisher 
estimated that 44 60% of adult 
trade books end up in the red, 
another 36% break even, and 
only 4% turn a decent profit." 

Should students be forced to 
bear the blunt of the indus- 
try's losses and non-profits? 
Publishers are fully aware 
that they have the students 
over a barrel since students 
must buy particular required 
textbooks. 

There are two possible so- 
lutions to the dilemma. On a 
local level, student govern- 
ment could promote some 
type of competitive selling of 
new texts. We can buy every- 
thing from groceries to auto- 
mobiles on a discounted 
basis; this opportunity should 
also be provided for students 



in the purchase of required 
books. 

On a wider level, the Na- 
tional Student Association 
could make the public and the 
publishing industry aware of 
the abuse students face in 
textbook prices. If housewives 
can demand fairer prices for 
food, a nationally supported 
student effort to acquire more 
realistic prices is also feasi- 
ble. It is no doubt true that 
profits from texts help to sup- 
port greater publications that 
otherwise never would be 
printed, but a 96 per cent sup- 
port is entirely unrealistic. 




Women Refused 
Contraceptive 
Pills at Colleges 

(I P.)— Findings, based on 
returns from 315 member in- 
stitutions of the American 
College Health Association, 
revealed that nearly half the 
nation's college health serv- 
ices (45 per cent) now will 
prescribe contraceptive pills, 
but only one in 25 will do so 
for single women who do not 
intend to marry in the near 
future. 

Returns of the national sur- 
vey, compiled early last year 
by Dr. Ralph M. Buttermore, 
director of the Student Health 
Service at Washington State 
University, showed: 

174 (557c) do not prescribe 
contraceptive pills; 

77 (26%) prescribe only to 
married women students; 

23 (7%) prescribe only for 
medical purposes; 

28 (B%) will prescribe for 
a single woman who intends 
to take a premarital exam or 
show other intent to marry in 
the near future; 

13 (4%) will prescribe for 
s i n g le , unmarried women; 
and 

Twelve of the latter group 
will prescribe for women un- 
der 21. 

No individual institutions 
were indentified by Dr. But- 
termore.

40 Year Pledge Is 
Made LXA Active 



By RUSSELL INGRAM 

After a delay of 40 years, 
the Theta Eta chapter of tht 
Lambda Chi Alpha Frater- 
nity at Millsaps College final- 
ly initiated Buford Ellington, 
Governor of Tennessee. 

Governor Ellington attend- 
ed Millsaps just prior to the 
depression, but was forced to 
drop out of school due to fi- 
nancial reasons. While at Mill- 
saps, he pledged Lambda Chi 
Alpha. This pledgeship was fi- 
nally ended Friday afternoon 
at a special initiation cere- 
mony, held in the chapel of 
Galloway Memorial Methodist 
Church. 

Friday at noon a ceremoni- 
al luncheon was held for Gov- 
ernor Ellington at the King's 
Irth Restaurant. The master 
of ceremonies was Howard 
Jones, an active alumnus in 
the local chapter. One of the 
special guests was Mr. Tom 
Scott, representative of the 
Convocation Committee. Mr. 
Tom Naylor welcomed every- 
one in behalf of the Grand 
High Zeta, the administrators 
of the national fraternity. Wel- 
coming Governor Ellington to 
the College were Deans Frank 
Laney and John Christinas. 
Welcoming Governor Elling- 
ton to the state was Gov- 
ernor Paul Johnson. 

In his speech, Governor El- 
lington announced his thrill at 
receiving this honor. He 
stressed that the young, as 
well as the old, make a con- 
tribution to their fellow man, 



nation, state, and the other 
young men and women of to- 
day. Especially to the older 
persons present, he said, 
"Greater than any political 
heights is the help of the 
young." 

After the luncheon, Ronnie 
Greer, president of the local 
chapter, presented Governor 
Ellington with a pledge pin 
and Paedagogus, the pledge 
manual, signed by the mem- 
bers of the active chapter. 

After the initiation at Gal- 
loway, a reception was held 
in his honor in the church 
lounge. At the reception, the 
Governor talked to his for- 
mer school mates and his new 
brothers. He was also given a 
Recognition Pin and a Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha Coat of Arms.

Convocation - A View From The Rear 



The convocation? It's all 
over. And we on the feature 
staff are still a little envious 
of the news and editorial 
staffs. We tried to think of 
an interesting subject some- 
how connected to THE CON- 
VOCATION, OF C O U R S E, 
that could belong to us en- 
tirely. We thought in vain. 

We could have written vivid 
descriptions of the buffet Sat- 
urday. We could have written 
about the gracious ladies in 
the receiving line that after- 
noon. Possibly an article could 
have been derived from the 
fashions exhibited by alum- 
nae. There were some hats 



Polanski's Polish Film Is 
Harsh 'Realistic Parable' 



Millsaps College has pre- 
sented a film in grand style 
toward a destiny of culture. 
Polanski's masterpiece, Knife 
In the Water, was shown on 
the night of the Song Fest to 
an appreciative audience. En- 
tirely in Polish, the guttural 
tongue marked a culture that 
with few modifications could 
have fit into our own. 

Dealing with basic social 
situations and types of peo- 
ple, Knife In the Water gave 
a new slant on the universal 
theme of the struggle for pow- 
er. Taking place almost en- 
tirely on the water, the film 
captured the intensity of in- 
teraction among three people 
thrown into close contact by 
limited space. A woman was 
continually smoothing over 
what otherwise would have 
been open conflict between her 
husband and a young student 
who had never sailed and was 
humiliated by the mistakes he 
made. A naturalistic ap- 
proach, however, saved 
none of the harshness of real- 
ism. Insight was given into 
the effect of Communism by 
subtle comments on "Yes, 
several good cars are in pri- 
vate hands now." Living con- 
ditions were represented as 
poor among those who were 
trying to get an 



hope was held out for those 
who had endured poverty and 
attained the upper classes. 

The knife was a symbol 
of the younger man's environ- 
ment because it was of such 
good use in the forest he came 
from and so useless on the 
water, where he, too, was out 
of his element. When the knife 
was lost and sank into the 
water, the strange element 
had completely defeated his 
ability to cope with it or with 
the wealth of his patrons. The 
struggle of the classes culmi- 
nated in a fist fight that had 
been foreshadowed through- 
out the film. The ending was 
a vague statement of no con- 
sequence that completed the 
realistic parable with perfec- 
tion. 



Ellington . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
ices, Inc. of New York, who 
presided, expressed confi- 
dence that Millsaps alumni 
and friends would leave the 
convocation with "enthusiasm 
and determination" and would 
succeed in their campaign. 

Citations were presented on 
behalf of the college to 36 in- 
dividuals by J. Barry Brind- 
ley, assistant, to the president, 
and by Lance Goss, associate 
of 



whose details could have 
filled columns. Yet no spark 
of inspiration showed itself. 

At the Coliseum we were 
briefly hit by a brain storm. 
An interview with a Secret 
Service man! However, fear- 
ing what would become of us 
if we tried to push through the 
Jackson police in order to 
question an SS man, we 
stayed in our seat throughout 
the program. We still are 
wondering how it would feel 
to rush around the country 
with the Secretary of De- 
fense. 

Now, we are going to fill 
this column with assorted 
statements. First, we want to 
congratulate the Lambda Chi 
Alpha's for cleverly initiating 
the Honorable Mr. Ellington 
into their honorable fraterni- 
ty. Congratulations we also 
want to give to the Governor 
on his initiation. 

Putting all jealousies aside, 
we want to tell our admira- 
tion for the P&W news writ- 
ers. Dianne Partridge and 
photographer Aex Wright ap- 
peared to be veteran report- 
ers as they covered Mr. Mc- 
Namara's speech and the fol- 
lowing citations.

to all of the students who 
served as ushers and guides 
during the weekend. We were 
also impressed by the entire 
student body, who gave a 
friendly, mannerly, and hap- 
py impression to guests. 

Thanks should also go to all 
who served on committees for 
the Convocation and espe- 
cially to those responsible for 
the large paper magnolias 
which decorated the Coliseum. 

Now we are going to end 
this column by mentioning a 
phenomenon of having an 
open house. The residents of 
Franklin Hall were surprised 
at the sudden loss of privacy. 
Alumni and friends are a fine 
group and they take their 
time coming around, but the 
typical Millsaps male makes 
his presence known in a girl's 
dormitory at the first possible 
opportunity. It was an in- 
teresting but not too peaceful 
afternoon. 



Auditions Set For 
Talented Students 

• 

SIX FLAGS Over Texas 
and SIX FLAGS Over Geor- 
gia announced plans to par- 
ticipate jointly in conducting 
a series of regional auditions 
in February and March seek- 
ing talented collegiate per- 
formers for their respective 
show department productions 
this summer. 

Millsaps CoUege students 
are? invited to attend the Mis- 
sissippi Regional Auditions, 
which will be held in Jack- 
son on Tuesday, March 7. The 
exact time and location in 
Jackson will be announceo 
shortly. 

All types of talent are being 
sought. Singers, dancers, mu- 
sicians, specialty acts such 
as magicians, acrobats, mili- 
tary drill teams, ventrilo- 
quists, fast-draw gunfighters 
—all will be considered. 

The quest for collegiate per- 
formers will take the talent 
scouts into eleven strategical- 
ly located regional audition 
sites in the southeastern and 
southwestern parts of the 
United States. 

SIX FLAGS Over Texas, lo- 
cated in Arlington, midway 
between Dallas and Fort 
Worth, attracted nearly 2,000,- 
000 visitors from all over the 
nation during its 1966 season. 
Opened in 1961, the 115-acre 
historical-theme park is re- 
garded by the Texas Tourist 
Development Agency as the 
most popular single tourist at- 
traction in the state. 

SIX FLAGS Over Georgia, 
on the other hand, will begin 
its first season of operations 
in June 1967. Though similar 
in concept to its counterpart 
in Arlington, this $12,000,000, 
276 - acre entertainment cen- 
ter, located in Atlanta, draws 
its theme from the exciting 
history and legend surround- 
ing Georgia and the South- 
eastern states. 

Both attractions are owned 
and operated by Great South- 
west Corporation.

KD's Independents 
Take Singing Titles 



By VICKI NEWCOMB 

As Kappa Deltas reclaimed 
their first place trophy in the 
traditional Chi Omega Song 
Fest, the Independent Men 
snatched a victory from last 
year's winners, Pi Kappa Al- 
pha. But the Pikes, along 
with Phi Mus, captured sec- 
ond place. 

Held in the Christian Cen- 
ter last Wednesday, February 
22, the fest was hosted by Chi 
Omega President Mel /Max- 
well. The program's agenda 
included entertainment by the 
MUlsaps chapter of LLOA 
(Lobby Lurkers of America) 
and a guest vocalist. 

As their contribution to the 
night's diversion, the LLOA 
managed an all male shotgun 
wedding. The event ended 
happily (despite the soprano 
renditions of Mark Matheny) 
as Prudence Ernestine (Jim- 
my Waide) finally captured 
her man (Don Wrighton). The 
organization then proclaimed 
Miss Jean Nicholson as their 
Goddess of the Eon and pre- 
sented her with a bouque of 
red roses. 

Guest vocalist was Mr. 
Stuart Liles, a former Mill- 
saps student, who has per- 
formed in the Little Theater 
and the Jackson Opera Guild. 
His performance included 
* The Shadow of Your Smile," 
"It Was A Very Good Year,'' 
and "The Girl from 
Iponema." 

Judging the competition 
were Mrs. R. C. Alexander, 
youth director and accom- 
plished vocalist and musician 
of First Baptist Church; Mr. 
Jim Hudgins, a student of the 
University of Missis- 
sippi School of Medicine and 
star of past Murrah and Ole 
Miss musicals; and Mr. La- 
mar Simmons, a choral di- 
rector of Galloway Methodist 
Church. 

Chi Omegas, following their 
presentation of the flower 
chain, ushered in tt h e 
musicale with "It's a B i g, 
Wide, Wonderful World," di- 
rected by Polly Gatlin and 
accompanied by Mary Jane 
\\ adlington. Lambda Chi Al- 
phas, directed by Danny Wil- 
liams and accompanied by 
Jimmy God bold, launched the 
competition with "This Land 
Is (My Land" and "Battle 
Hymn of the Republic." 

Kappa Deltas followed with 
1 Sweet Violets" and "Sweet- 
heart Tree," with Susan Du- 
quette directing and Leslie 
Fean Floyd accompanying. 
The Kappa Sigmas gave their 
expected performance. 

Genrose Mullen and Mag- 
gie Furr accompanied Phi 
Mus in "More" and "The Ob- 
ject of My Affection." The 
Independent Men, singing 
"America Medley" and 
"Gonna Build a Mountain," 
were conducted byTorrey 
Curtis and accompanied by 
David Stokes. 

Kappa Alpha renditions in- 
cluded a medley of patriotic 
songs and "Kappa Alpha 
Rose." Conducting and ac- 



companying them were Mike 
Moore and Faiser Hardin. 
Zeta Tau Alpha then deliv- 
ered "Up With People" and 
'The Ashgrove." They were 
directed by Michelle Genthon 
and accompanied by Pat Lesh 
on the piano, Holly Carrier on 
the guitar, and Charlie 
Shields on the drums. 

"Honeymoon" and "Every- 
thing's Coming Up Roses" 
composed the performance of 
Pi Kappa Alphas, directed by 
Ess Leake and accompanied 
by Scott Hardy. The Inde- 
pendent Women, directed by 
Karen Allen and accompanied 
by Phyllis Alford, drew the 
competition to a close with 
"! Told Every Little Star" 
and "Impossible Dream." 

With the night's final per- 
formance, Chi O's, though not 
contending themselves, sang 
"Somewhere My Love" and 
"Medley of Fraternity 
Songs." James Williams 
* from the Millsaps melting 
pot of talent" served as the 
evening's organist. An- 
nouncers for the competing 
groups were children of fac- 
ulty members.

Lloyd Captures Trophy 
In Debate Tournament 



By DAVID FLEMING 

Miss Robbie Lloyd, captured 
her fourth forensics trophy in 
five tournaments to highlight 
Millsaps' participation in the 
University of Southern Mis- 
sissippi Debate Tournament. 

Miss Lloyd received her 
award as she ranked third in 
Poetry Reading. In addition, 
Miss Lloyd reached the finals 
in Extemparaneous Speaking. 

In debate Robbie Lloyd and 
Rebecca Jackson won four of 
six rounds to boost their sea- 
son record to 10-7 and 11-6 
respectively — Miss Jackson 
led the second squad in per- 
centage of wins with 65% 
leading the Millsaps debate 
squad in that category. The 
wins were over McNeese 
State, sweepstakes winner, 
Northeast Louisiana State, 
Loyolo of New Orleans, and 
Louisiana Tech. The losses 
were to Texas Christian U. 
and the University of Hous- 
ton. Miss Lloyd totaled 138 
speaker's points while her 
freshman colleague amassed 
131 points. 

Mary Ann McDonald and 
Diann Adams likewise com- 
piled a 4-2 win-loss mark in 
the tournament. Their fine 
performance enabled the girls 
to solidify their position as 
leaders in the most wins de- 
partment. Miss Adams has 
fourteen divisions and her 
partner just behind at thir- 
teen, Mary Ann and Diann 
defeated Southeast Louisiana, 
Texas Christian University, 
University of Southwest Lou- 
isiana, and Memphis State 
University. Their losses were 
to Freed-Hordeman and the 
U. of Houston. 

Miss McDonald led all Mill- 



saps debators with 146 spea- 
ker is points and two first 
speaker awards. In addition, 
Miss McDonald reached the 
finals in Extemporaneous 
Speaking. Miss Adams rated 
close behind with 141 speak- 
er's points and also received 
two first speaker awards. 

Paul Jordon, Clyde Lea, Da- 
vid Fleming, and Ted Lamar 
also attended the tournament 
but failed to show impres- 
sively. Paul Jordon led the 
male debators with 126 speak- 
er's points and one first 
speaker award. 

The Millsaps debate squad 
has a weekend off in prepa- 
ration for the MSCW Tourna- 
ment which will be held 
March 3-4.

Varied Opinions Given 
Concerning Stall Game 



Mississippi Basketball 
Coaches Offer Comments 

By DAVID DAVIDSON 
Sports Editor 

In view of a mounting number of the nation's lead- 
ing basketball coaches protesting the slow-down tact- 
ics in college competition, this writer made an effort 
to contact a number of Mississippi's cage coaches and 
list some opinions on the proposed time limit rule that 
some coaches seem to be clamoring for lately. 
Coach Joe Dan Gold at Mis 



sissippi State University said 
that a time limit rule whether 
24 or 30 or 36 seconds, would 
not effect his Maroons this 
year because he doesn't have 
the type material to run 
a stal) offense. 

Gold did say that a coach, 
in his opinion, should have 
the perogavive to do what he 
thinks is best with the per- 
sonnel he has on hand. 

"I don't like to see a t am 
just stand out and hold the 
ball." said Gold, "but K a 
club can hit good shots and is 
well disciplined, running a 
slow-down offense is fine." 

Gold went on to say that 
II a rule was enacted to force 
a team to shoot within a def- 
inite time period, a concur- 
rent rule outlawing the zone 
defense should also be en- 
acted, and he added that the 
zone defense is very advan- 
tageous to many teams. 

Gold said that a time limit 
rule would reduce some of the 
coaching techniques. "T h e 
pros play almost exactly 
alike. They can't play a zone, 
they all play man to man. 

"If a time limit rule were 
enforced, " continued Gold 
much of the individuality of 
the college would be cut out." 

Gold said that if the coaches 
wanted to speed the game up, 
they should use the old Amer- 
ican Basketball Association 
rule that any shot taken from 
outside a 30-foot arch drawn 
on me court would count three 
points. That way, a team eight 
points behind could hit a cou- 
ple of long baskets and be 
right back in the running. 

He said that he was not ad- 
\ocating such a rule but 
would favor that over a time 
limit. Joe Dan was definitely 
against a time limit, saying 
that that was one of the things 
that separates today's college 
ball from the style of the pros. 

Coach Lee Floyd of the Uni- 
versity of Southern Missis- 
sippi, on the other hand, was 
in favor of a 24-second rule. 
He had rather have the game 
opened up and have no stall- 
ing around, whatsoever. 

"Play it like the pros play 
it," said Floyd, "It's more ap- 
pealing to the crowd for a 
team to run that for a team 
to sit on the ball." 

Floyd was of the opinion 
that a team could win at home 
utilizing a slow-down plan but 
said that the officials would 
eliminate such action on the 
road by calling varied infrac- 
tions. 

"I don't think the rule will 
come any time soon," said the 
oouuiem 



some of the old heads are ad- 
vocates of the slow game and 
have too much influence for 
such a rule to be passed." 

Coach Harrison B. Wilson 
of Jackson State College 
voiced his favor towards the 
rule, even though his team 
will use the stall or slow-down 
with as many as seven min- 
utes left in a game. 

He said that he would slow 
play down considerably if his 
team had a slim lead in the 
last six or seven minutes and 
shoot only lay-ups or sure 
jumpers. And with two or 
three minutes left and a slim 
lead he said that he would 
completely stop the action 
with a freeze. 

However, he said that a 30 
second rule, in his opinion, 
would be good for basketball 
as a whole. 

Coach James (Stute) Allen 
of Mississippi College, as a 
member of the regional NCAA 
Rating Board, said that he 
would recommend to the 
Rules Committee that they 
bring about a 30-second time 
limit rule to speed up the 
game. 

Allen said that more people 
get to play (10 or 15) with a 
fast moving game, whereas 
only five or six see action 
when a team bogs down the 
action. 

"Any time I have good ma- 
terial I can shoot the ball 
when I want to," said the 
Choctaw mentor. "I think 
that the stall is too much of 
an equalizer, putting the bet- 
ter team at a disadvantage." 

He stated that the Rating 
Beard is asked about such a 
rule every year and said that 
it will probably come to a vote 
at the close of this season. 
Allen said that there seems to 
be more pressure this year 
than in the past to have such 
a rule involked. 

He cited cases in which his 
Choctaw s have knocked off 
much bigger teams (Missis- 
sippi State and Southern for 
instance) with a stall-weave 
offense. And when Allen was a 
coach at Clinton High School, 
he said that he used the freeze 
with great effectiveness 
against superior teams, point- 
ing out several such cases. 

But Allen said that he felt 
it was past time, for the rule 
to be in effect, saying that it 
would be good not only for 
basketball but for the fans as 
well. 

Coach John O'Keefe of Wil- 
liam Carey College at Hat- 
tiesburg was in favor of a 
time limit but leaned more to- 
wards a 36-second 



"Players are a lot quicker 
today and much better shoot- 
ers," emphasized O'Keefe, 
"and I feel that a 36%second 
rule would be good." 

O'Keefe was of the opinion 
that the rule would eliminate 
the effectiveness of the zone 
defense, making for a faster 
brand of basketball that 
would draw more fans into 
the gyms. 

He didn't say when he 
thought the rule would be 
voted in but O'Keefe did 
say that perhaps it would be 
better if some teams used the 
rule during pre-season tour- 
neys and let people have a 
look at and study it before 
making it NCAA law. 

Coach James Montgomery 
of Millsaps was against a 
shot - forcing rule. His phi- 
losophy is that basketball is a 
game to score and prevent 
the opponent from scoring and 
if freezing the ball prevents 
the other team from scoring, 
fine and dandy. 

He said that it took a su- 
perior team to play a cat-and- 
mouse game because of the 
finesse it takes to hold on to 
the ball during such a game. 

Monty said that the ten- 
second time line rule (giving 
the offense only 10 seconds to 
bring the ball out of the back- 
court) was one weapon used 
to combat the stall, adding 
that a good defensive team 
could put a quick end to a 
stall with a few steals and 
lay-ups. 

Monty said that he felt that 
most of the coaches who op- 
posed the stall game were the 
coaches who had been beaten 
by a stall. He said that may- 
be one out of every 25 games 
would be slow-down game, 
not enough to bring about 
such a drastic change in the 
NCAA basketball rule book. 

It is the opinion of this writ- 
er, who sees as many if not 
more basketball games each 
year than anyone else in Mis- 
sissippi, that if a team wants 
to hold the ball more power 
to them. 

If a team can hold the ball 
for 39 minutes and 59 seconds 
and make a lay-up in the last 
second and win 2-0, that's 
fine. The purpose of basket- 
ball is to win and a small 
team simply can't stay on the 
court, in most cases, with a 
team that is much taller. 

The slow-down is a great 
equalizer and Coach James 
(Babe) McCarthy won three 
consecutive Southeastern Con 
ference championships at 
Mississippi State not too 
many years ago using a stall 
periodically against superior 
teams. Of course those title 
teams of 1959, '60, and '61 
could run with the ball also, 
but against a faster, taller 
team the stall was the 
only way to victory and that 
was the lone path to take. 

Against a team like UCLA, 
no team in the nation could 
expect to run and shoot, but 
Southern Cal almost turned 
the trick with a stall, only to 
lose 40-35 (IN OVERTIME). 




SCORING LEADER — Jerry Sheldon, of Loredo, Ky., paced the 
Millsaps Major scorers with a 16-point per game output during 
the basketball season. Sheldon is a 6-3 pivot and co-captained 
the 1966-67 team. He was also the leading rebounder, grab- 
bing in the neighborhood of 12 retrieves per outing.

Davis Still Working 
With 28 Gridders, 
Spring Game Today 



By HARRY SHATTUCK 

Twenty-eight hopefuls con- 
tinue to engage in daily 
football practice at Millsaps 
College where head coach 
Harper Davis is pointing to- 
ward today's annual spring 
intrasquad game. 

The Friday afternoon scrim- 
mage, with competing teams 
to be announced, will wind up 
what has thus far been a high- 
ly successful set of spring 
drills on Methodist Hill. 

Five newcomers have 
joined 23 returnees to form 
what will be the nucleus of 
next year's Millsaps, grid 
team. Several freshman re- 
cruits, however, will add 
strongly to the squad when 
fall comes around. 

The new players are end 
Pete Allison, a transfer from 
the United States Naval 
Academy; tackles Joe Schoe- 
neck and Robbie Smith from 
Hinds Junior College, quarter- 
back Steve Scherer, also from 
Hinds; and halfback Donald 
Young from Mississippi Delta 
Junior College. 

Returnees from last year's 
4-3-1 club appear particularly 
strong in the center of the line. 
Ben Graves of Jackson, Da- 
vid Powers of Rolling Fork; 
and James Shaw of Webb, are 
manning the center position 
and all have one year of ex- 
perience at that post. 

At guard, the situation is 
just as promising where five 
lettermen will be back. Da- 
vid Martin of Columbus, Jim- 
my Waide of West Point, 
George Self of New Albany, 
Tommy Burns of West Point; 
and Thomas Bryant of Meridi- 
an all have experience, with 
Waide and Burns three-year 
men and Martin a two-year 
veteran. 

Joining the two Hinds pros- 
pects at tackle are returnees 
John Turcotte of Clinton, 
Stanley Graham of Jackson 
Central and Jo Jo Logan of 
Newton, while the end posi- 
tion seems well taken care of 
with veterans Bill Campbell 
of West Point, Melford Smith 
of Aberdeen, Jerry Pearson of 
Houston, Johnny Hamby of 
Batesville, and Wayne Ferrell 
of Pascagoula, all expected 
back for further duty. 

Unfortunately, losses are 
a little greater in the backf ield 
where four starters and sev- 
eral strong reserves will have 
to be replaced. 

The quarterback position, 
hurt greatly by the loss of 
aerial artist Danny Neely of 
Pearl, is getting quite a lot of 
attention and at present 
Shearer and Neely *s under- 
study Jo Pat Quinn of Meri- 
dian are being counted upon 
heavily. 

Two lettermen in the line 
have been moved to halfback 
in hopes of bolstering the run- 
ning game. Leon Bailey, split 
end last year from Meridian, 



and Max Arinder, a Jackson 
boy with a letter from the 
guard slot, have joined Young 
and defensive specialists Mike 
Davidson of Pine Bluff Ark., 
and Mike Coker of Jackson 
Murrah. 

The fullback post finds still 
more lineup changes taking 
place with former guard Rob- 
ert Evans joining returning 
Pat Amos of Hazlehurst, and 
Prentiss Bellue of Centreville. 

Coker is the lone returning 
backfield man with any real 
offensive experience, although 
Amos did see limited action 
late in the 1966 campaign. 
Coker, Davidson, and Amos 
were all mainstays on de- 
fense, however. 

Davis continues to be 
pleased with the spirit and 
morale of his charges and is 
looking forward to a big clos- 
ing week. A lot of time was 
spent last week defensing the 
single - wing (Sewanee-style) 
and this week the squad will 
be working extra hard to pre- 
pare for Friday's closing 
scrimmage. 



Intramural Fight 
Tourney Slated 
For Mar. 6-14 

Added to the intramural 
agenda this spring will be a 
boxing tournament. The first 
matches will begin on March 
6 with the final tournaments 
coming March 13 and 14 as 
a part of the Greek Week fes- 
tivities. 

There will be three-two-min- 
ute rounds in each match. Fi- 
nal tournament rounds will be 
held under Golden Gloves 
rules. Trophies will be given 
to individual class winners 
and to the social organization 
with the greatest number of 
individual winners. Anyone in- 
terested in participating 
should contact Coach Mont- 
gomery, Wayne Ferrell or 
Wayne Upchurch. 

Class divisions are as fol- 
lows: Bantam Weight, up to 
155 lbs.; Lightweight, 155 to 
170; Middleweight 170 to 185; 
Welterweight, 185 to 200; and 
Heavyweight, 200 on up. 

Official weigh-ins will be 
Monday March 6 at 4 o'clock 
in the gym. The gym will be 
open for training starting 
March L 

There will be an entrance 
fee of 50 cents and an ad- 
mission of 25 cents. 




McCOMB NATIVE — Bill Lax, 
a 6-1, 175-pound guard, drew 
sjMiratic starting assignments 
during the basketball season 
and often came off the bench 
to boost the Majors with his 
scoring talents. Lax is a 
sophomore and is expected to 
be of much value during his 
two years of eligibility that 
remain. 



The Purple and White is 

pleased to announce that 
Alex Wright, a freshman 
from Baltimore, Maryland, 
has assumed the position of 
staff photographer for the re- 
mainder of the academic year. 



Majors End 
Cage Year 
With Loss 

Millsaps* Majors closed the 
1966-67 basketball season on a 
sour note last week by losing 
to Alabama College's Falcons, 
87-73, in the Buie Gymnasi- 
um. 

The loss gave the Majors 
a 1-25 record and raised Ala- 
bama College's report to 6-13. 

The Majors were out- 
gunned from the field by only 
one goal but the visitors made 
33 free tosses in 39 attempts 
compared with 21 of 31 for 
Millsaps. 

The 'Bamans went ahead 
1-0 on a free toss and minutes 
later were winging with a 15-6 
margin. The Majors rallied 
and pulled to within three, 15- 
12, but by halftime had 
dropped behind 37-25. 

Millsaps pulled to within 
eight points early in the sec- 
ond half (the Majors have 
habitually rallied during this 
segment of most contests) but 
Millsaps misques paired with 
Falcon free throws put the 
game out of reach. 

The Majors scored the last 
12 points of the game, all com- 
ing from senior guard Ron 
Hoffman and frosh guard Da- 
vid Hansford and at the 
same time held the Falcons 
scoreless but the rally was 
much too late arriving. 

Marshall Killingsworth tal- 
lied 25 p o i n t s for Alabama 
College and Henry Ezell *bl 
lowed with 17. 

Senior pivot Jerry Sheldon, 
who has been the strong point 
of the Millsaps team all year, 
ended his collegiate career 
with a respectable 15 point 



KA's Lead Field 
In Cage Action 



By CHUCK HALL FORD 

After two weeks of inter- 
rupted play, the KA's took an 
early first round lead with a 
victory over the LXA's in bas- 
ketball. 

The opening of the season 
saw limited action due to var- 
ious campus activities (such 
as song fest practice) that 
took precedent over the sched- 
uled games. 

The KA's jumped off to an 
early lead and were never 
headed taking a quick 62-45 
victory from the taller LXA's. 
The KA's were lead by Joe 
Bailey, who put the game out 
of reach in the third quarter 
by scoring 14 of the KA's to- 
tal of 26 points in that quar- 
ter. 

The KA's used their superi- 
or speed to fast break the 
LXA's off the court in the 
third quarter. Bailey ended up 
high point man of the game 
with 21 points. Big David 
Powers lead the LXA's with 
19 points, followed by Larry 
Goodpaster with 10. 

One of the closest games 
in a long time was the Pike— 
M-Club game which went into 
an overtime period before the 
M-Club could pull out a vic- 
tory. 

The M-Club lead most of 
the game, but the Pikes 
rallied behind the fine shoot- 
ing of Jimmy Williams, to 
take the lead in the final min- 
utes of the contest. 

But the M-Club tied the 
score with 30 seconds left at 
32-32. The, Pikes then tried to 
stall for the last shot but 
stalled too long as they still 
hadn't fired a shot when the 
final horn sounded. 

Then the M-Club took over 
and scored 5 quick points and 
held the Pikes scoreless. 
Leading scorer of the night 
was Pike Jimmy Williams 
with 13. Troy Lee Jenkins 
lead the M-Club with 12 points 
followed by Danny Neely with 
10. 

The KA's continued their 
winning ways with a resound- 
ing victory over the hapless 



production. Bill Drury and 
Bill Lax scored 12 each and 
Bobby Luckett 11 for Mill- 
saps. 



Independent Men, as they 
trounced the GDI's 86-16. 

Again the KA's were led by 
Joe Bailey who poured in 30 
points. He was followed by 
Ben Graves with 21, Tommy 
Davis with 14, and Kelsey 
Van Every with 13. 

The LXA's got on the win- 
ning track with a quick vic- 
tory over the M-Club 48-33. 
The LXA's took the lead in 
the second quarter and were 
never headed from that point. 
Leading by four points at half 
time the LXA's steadily in- 
creased that margin in the 
last half to take the victory. 

Larry Goodpaster lead the 
LXA's with 13 points, followed 
by David Powers with 11, and 
Jerry Duck with 10. Troy Lee 
Jenkins lead the M-Club with 
seven points. 

Without further delays, the 
season should end by spring 
break, at which time all at- 
tention will turn to softball. 

Also this year, the basket- 
ball fans are being entertained 
by the antics of the "B" team 
league. 

The KA's, KS's, and LXA's 
all have a second team made 
up of people who like to play 
but are not quite up to playing 
on the regular teams of those 
groups. 

There is no championship at 
stake in this league as it is 
merely an outlet to make the 
intramural program com- 
plete. This "B" league is an 
interesting and amusing addi- 
tion to the Intramural pro- 
gram this year.

Footnotes 

HENRY CHATHAM 
Editor 



I love this place. There's 
something about Millsaps that 
has gotten into the blood of 
this WASP, who could have 
been in the usual majority 
groups on any American 
College campus. In Washing- 
ton last semester I thrilled to 
the majesty of the nation's 
capital. And the immaculate- 
ness of everything not swept 
under the proverbial rug 
made the struggling Millsaps 
I returned to seem dreary by 
contrast. But that lasted just 
a couple of days. Then I was 
caught up again in the em- 
brace of Southern warmth 
and Millsaps academic free- 
dom and all the other free- 
doms usually considered in- 
herent on the American scene. 

It was in the darkest days 
of the Closed Society of Mis- 
sissippi that this Southern 
Baptist came out of high 
school and sadly gave up on 
going to college in the state 
which had been the home of 
his forebears for a hundred 
years. But then he found Mill- 
saps — or someone at Millsaps 
found him. I shall be forever 
indebted to that anonymous 
person. Yes, I love this place. 

Something happened 
though, on the eve of convo- 
cation, that haunts me still. 
Caught up in the crossfire of 
loyalty to my alma-mater-to- 
be and to the spirit of free- 
dom that first lured me to the 
Millsaps campus, I agonized 
over and finally made a deci- 
sion to retract permission to 
run an ad from the ad hoc 
Committee to End the War 
in Vietnam. I do not regret 
the decision — nor do I relish 
any particular glory over my 
"courage". I can only say 
that the timing of the item 
was the ultimate factor— but, 
then, it was the timing that 
was important to the 
proponents, too. I guess I am 
only learning at long last that 
the cliche of "heartbreaking 
decisions" still has the kernel 
of truth intact even with all 
that moss. . . 



Franklin Chatham's article 
on transsexual Operations ap- 
peared in the February 9 is- 
sue of the Purple and White. 
Although the student reaction 
to the article varied consid- 
erably, those interested in 
further developments on the 
subject might check the April 
issue of Esquire magazine (to 
be on newsstands in early 
March). 

Sports Editor David David- 
son offers you the product of 
his research on the use of the 
"stall" in college basketball 
in this issue. The int« rviews 
are as timely and as impres- 
sive as the overall story. Mill- 
saps students may expect to 
read follow-up stories in the 
Jkackson papers sometime in 
the near future. 

We congratulate both these 
writers in their efforts to 
produce a better Purple and 
White for the Millsaps com- 
munity.

CHIAROSCURO 



By CHARLES SWOOPE 



First of all, this is Tiny 
Alice Week. Tonight, yes this 
very night, Edward Albee's 
very fine play opens at New 
Stage. I have seen the play in 
rehearsal, and it should be 
one of the finest pieces of 
theatre to be seen in these 
parts in quite a while. The 
dress rehearsal (which was 
held Tuesday night and was 
open to Millsaps students) 
gave promise of a really out- 
standing performance. If you 
i.iissed it, you should beg, for- 
row, or steal any ticket you 
can find to see Tiny Alice. 

Before anything else, here 
are three booKs you should 
investigate: Ecce Homo is a 
portfolio of a hundred or so 
drawings and watercolors by 
George Grosz, the great Ger- 
man artist whose subject-mat- 
ter was Berlin in the 20 s and 
30's. His sketches record in 
agonizing detail the gruesome 
milieu of Mittel-Europa at the 
time (you know, intimate 
cabarets, Kafka-esque streets 
and the like) and point, I 
think, toward the excesses of 
our own time. Such a 
vignette, for example, as the 
brutal hotel room slaying of a 
mistress by her aged lover 
has its nearest contemporary 
visual analogue in the photo- 
graphs of napalm-burned Viet- 
namese children in a recent 
issue of Ramparts magazine. 
Hardly a pleasant little folio 
of Renoir prints to give to 
your grandmother, but a 
deadly serious book that de- 
serves attention. 

Second is Thomas Woodrow 
Wilson by Sigmund Freud 
and William C. Bullitt. Post- 
humously published so as not 
to offend Wilson's widow and 
others, the book is an attempt 
to apply the techniques of 
psycho - analysis to a pub- 
lic figure who was not availa- 
ble for direct analysis. Freud 
and Bullitt's motivations in 
writing the book were doubt- 
ful, and so is the result. I 
s'r^ply cannot take their con- 
clusions as anything but tenta- 
tive in the extreme. Psycho- 
analysis is a two-day stt 
but the approach in this case 
is strictly that of a cow path. 
Still, the book is interesting 
for the light it sheds on Freud 
himself, if not on his subject. 

Lastly, there is The Story 
of O by Pauline Reage. Some- 
thing o* a 



in France in the late 50's, this 
quaintly-titled little volume is 
the story of O, a sweet young 
thing who is brutally tortured 
by a seemingly endless series 
of sado-masochistic lovers. 
The whole thing culminates in 
her death; the book's ex- 
quisitely - detailed account of 
all this is blantantly porno- 
graphic. Nevertheless, some 
of our land's most esteemed 
literary critics have acclaimed 
this little bit of trash as a 
profound existentialist mas- 
terpiece, recounting (so they 
say) with supreme craft the 
alienation and angst (as it 
were) of our time. This is all 
very nice, I suppose, and 
makes it perfectly respectable 
for you to be seen reading it 
in public. But don't give it to 
your little sister for her birth- 
day. 

Music: Last Thursday, on 
the television, a Young Peo- 
ple's Concert by Leonard 
Bernstein and the New York 
Philharmonic. The program 
was an hour-long tribute to 
Charles Ives. In case you do 
not know,, Ives is The Ameri- 
can Composer. Born in 1874, 
he was the first American 
composer to break away from 
the European tradition 
(Brahms and all those peo- 
ple); his music — Written in 
the first two decades of this 
century — is to this day mod- 
ern in every sense of the 
word, complete with poly- 
rhythm, polytonality, metrical 
modulation and all the other 
techniques of present -day 
musical composition. Bern- 
stein has rightfully called him 
"our first really great com- 
poser ... our Washington, 
Lincoln and Jefferson of 
Music." 

Poetry: Poets are to be 
seen and heard all over our 
happy little state these days.

RETURN REQUESTED

Since this is the social col- 
umn, we will mention the 
parties and couples, but first 
we can't refrain from com- 
menting on Millsaps moment 
of glory this week - end. 
Weren't you proud; for all the 
times people had said, "You 
go to Mill who?", didn't you 
feel like standing on your 
toes and shouting "SAPS!" 
McNamara made the state- 
ment that "brains are like 
hearts, they go where they 
are appreciated" It's a good 
feeling to know that at Mill- 
saps your brain is appreci- 
ated, (even if your heart 
isn't) to know that if you have 
a serious, or even profound, 
thought that you needn't hide 
it like an ugly relative. In a 
conversation with a student 
from another college it was 
mentioned that a number of 
students from Millsaps were 
discussing the aspects if some 
current event. Horrified, the 
other student gasped, "What 
do y'all do up there anyway,

Taking the stand himself, 
Mr. Strieker confessed that 
he'd never been before a mi- 
crophone before. However, 
with the sharp mind of one 
much younger, he said he was 
going to leave the gift in his 
will, but decided to give it 
now, as he was "always look- 
ing for a profit." 

A standing ovation and re- 
sounding applause met Mr. 
Strieker as he stated that he 
hoped he lived long enough to 
give another gift someday. 

The announcement was also 
made of the other sizable 
gifts that have been given. 
They include five gifts of $50,- 
000; one gift of $35,000; six 
of $25,000; one of $22,500; 
five of $15,0<)0; eight of $10,- 
000; nine of $5000-$9000; and 
many under $5000. 

The total for the campaign 
so far is $1,519,278.42. With 
the addition of the money 
from the Ford Foundation, 
the grand total reached is 
$2, 126,000. 

Belhaven a few weeks back; 
W. H. Auden will be at Mis- 
sissippi State during the first 
week of March; John Ciardi 
has spoken at MSCW in chap- 
el and will speak again at the 
MEA convention. The South- 
ern Literary Festival draws 
nigh and will feature some in- 
teresting speakers; this year 
it will be held at Southwest- 




think?" Let's hope so. 

Several hearts this past 
week have discovered where 
they are appreciated. Those 
that we know of are Betty 
Toon, Kappa Delta, and Mike 
Coker, Kappa Alpha, both 
freshmen, who patiently wait- 
ed till second semester to get 
dropped. Anne Reid, Chi Ome- 
ga freshman, and Jim Mc- 
Cay, sophomore Kappa Sig- 
ma, also got dropped the 
night of Song - fest. Cindy 
Shell, sophomore Phi Mu, and 
Frank Wells, a Lambda Chi 
Alpha alumnus, are pinned. 
Thursday night the Chi Ome- 
ga's held a candlelight at 
which it was revealed that 
Robbie Lloyd, sophomore, 
and Gene Horton, Kappa Sig- 
ma, also a sophomore, are 
pinned. 

The Sigs released all of 
their suppressed desires at 
their Hells Angels Party Fri- 
day night. Saturday was the 
night for the Pike's Spring 
Monster party held at Costas 
Lodge with the Epics of Jack- 
son playing. Following the 
party, a formal breakfast 
celebrated the conclusion of 
fertility rites. 

Congratulations to the top 
ten, five and most beautiful 
girl at Millsaps are- overdue, 
and well deserved. We would 
like to recommend that to 
keep things interesting they 
have ugly reviews on alter- 
nating years, with the bot- 
tom ten from the Beauty Re- 
view automatically elected. 
This way no one would get 
tired of the same ole 
thing and it would keep the 
judges on their toes. 

Valentine's Day this year 
was done the way it should 
be for a change. The day 
started off with a valentine 
from the Lambda Chi's and 
ended with a serenade from 
the LLOA to the Goddess. 

Songfest this year was car- 
ried out very well. The deco- 
rations looked festive and the 
music was beautiful and in- 
tertaining. Also entertaining 
was the LLOA's womanless 
wedding. 

Between them and the Sigs, 
Songfest is saved from being 
a dull affair. Anymore, how- 
ever, and it would be utter 
chaos. The winners this year 
in the women's division were 
the Kappa Delta's singing 
"Sweet Violets" and "The 
Sweetheart Tree." It was en- 
couraging to see the Indepen- 
dent women singing this year. 
We hope that next year they 
will have even more support.

"The Responsible Self" is 
the theme of this year's se- 
ries of colloquia. The col- 



loquia are designed to pro- 
vide an opportunity for the 
exchange of ideas and values 
centering around the selected 
theme and area of investiga-

concerned with the question 
of selfhood, with special em- 
phasis on human capacity and 
responsibility for decision. 

Seven programs to be led

Honors Colloquia, in which 
the new Honors candidates 
will participate, this spring. 
At the conclusion of the Col- 
loquia an examination will be 
given over the material 
covered. 

Seniors participating in the 
program engaged in explora- 
tory research last semester 
as they sought to define a 



subject for the Honors Essay. 
This semester they will be 
concerned with writing the es- 
say and presenting an oral 
defense of it before an inter- 
disciplinary faculty c o m- 
mittee. 

Students who enter the Hon- 
ors Program are eligible for 
graduation With Honors or 
With Highest Honors. Re- 
quirements include three se- 
mesters of Honors work, pres- 
entation and defense of an
